Fall Chapter Update

This Fall we will have 30+ live-in brothers for the 1st time since re-colonization. Rush is planned for w/o 8/20 and 8/27. Chapter Members would love alumni to drop by this Fall.

Rush Retreat – Sunday, 8/19 in Los Altos, CA

David Gray has graciously volunteered to host this Fall’s Chapter Rush Retreat on Sunday, 8/19 from 1 – 5 pm. So far we have 4 alumni volunteers (David, Ryan Panos, Zach Brown and I) that will be attending the Rush Retreat to help out. We are looking for Alumni Volunteers to come meet/work with the Chapter and other Alumni. Donations are also welcome to defray the cost of the Rush Retreat. If you are interested in attending or donating to the Rush Retreat please email me via reply. Thanks in advance.

PUSH America Fundraising Event (Kap Slap) – Sat, 8/25 @ 7:30 pm @ Pauley Pavilion

The Chapter has embarked on an ambitious Philanthropy Project during the middle of rush to host one of the biggest Philanthropy Events in the History of Cal. They will be hosting a concert headlined by a famous DJ named Kap Slap. The concert will also feature local campus acts. Their goal is to sell out Pauley Pavilion (1,000 attendees) with Cal only students to raise money and awareness for PUSH America (Pi Kappa Phi’s Philanthropy). All profits will go to PUSH America. So far they’ve sold over 400 tickets. To see the event trailer click on the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_HKm-ChlIw

If you have any other questions please email me and I will direct them to the Chapter.

Football Tailgate Sponsorship Updates

Fall will bring back our Cal Football team to campus where they will be playing in a renovated Memorial Stadium. The Chapter is excited to be hosting pre-game tailgates as in past years. Pre-Game tailgates are made possible by Alumni Sponsorships and parking proceeds. Alumni Football Tailgate Sponsors receive a free parking space in exchange for a $100 donation. So far we have the following sponsors:

9/1 vs Nevada – Larry Sage, Juan Serrano, 3 open spots
9/8 vs S. Utah – All spots are open
9/29 vs ASU – All spots are open
10/6 vs UCLA – All spots are open
10/20 vs Stanfurd – Scott Keller, 4 open spots
11/2 vs UW – All spots are open
11/10 vs Oregon – All spots are open

As you can tell we only have 3 sponsors so far so we have a lot of work to do to fill up our spots. Please email me if you’d like to be a Sponsor.

Alumni Bago (LA to Cal) for Oregon Game (11/9-11/11)

Every year for over 20 years a group of Gamma Alumni have made a pilgrimage up to the Bay Area in a Winnebago led the Winton Family/Friends. This year the Bago will be coming up for the Oregon game on 11/10. The Bago is scheduled to come up Friday, 11/9 at noon and will return to LA on Sunday, 11/11 in the evening. Bago departure and return is from Burbank. Frank Winton would like to invite other alumni to join us as we make this epic pilgrimage. If you are interested please email drfrizank@hotmail.com.

Thank you for your time and hope you can continue to support us this Fall Semester.
