Alumni – A couple of updates on upcoming events this week and next.
Cal vs UCLA Alumni Tailgate
This Thursday, Frank Winton and a SoCal Pi Kapp Alumni Crew will be hosting a pre-game Cal vs UCLA tailgate at the Rose Bowl. They plan to set up before 2 pm. They plan to meet at Jack in the Box off Windsor/210 between 12:30 – 1 pm and then come in as a group. Frank and crew plan to provide food/beverages. So far we have the following Pi Kapp confirmations: Frank Winton Sr, Frank Jr, Clark Bertram, Rafa, Zein, Arash, Dean Wood, Kevin Klein, Rico Gallardo, Mark Aranoff and I.
If you’d like to join all he asks is a $20 donation. Please contact Frank Winton Jr.
Deftos/Chang/Schad Memorial Pledge Activity on Fri, 10/30
On Friday, 10/30 the Chapter will be conducting the Deftos/Chang/Schad Memorial Pledge Activity where alumni/actives will conduct a joint pledge activity where we will remember 3 brothers that were prematurely taken away from us. We will remember their contributions and what they meant to the Chapter and their Brothers to educate pledges on the importance of life while at Cal and the Fraternity. Activity starts at 8:30 pm at the Deftos Memorial Tree. Alumni are meeting at Freehouse (Bancroft & College Ave) before starting at 7 pm. Please contact Zach Brown, Chapter Advisor to confirm your attendance.
Note – Every year we award a $700 scholarship in honor of Stephen Deftos, Jeff Chang and Chris Schad. We use proceeds from our Chapter Investment Fund covering the difference with Alumni/Board donations. If you’d like to contribute please let us know. Every year there has been a Board Member that will match any donation towards this dollar for dollar. I’m sure he will do it again this year.
USC vs Cal Pre-Game Tailgate on Sat, 10/31
On Saturday, 10/31 starting at 10 am the Chapter will be hosting a pre-game tailgate before the USC vs Cal game. Kickoff is at 12:30 pm. So far we have Alumni tailgate sponsorships from Scott Keller, Alan Arredondo, Frank Winton Jr, JD Mason, Emery Dora, Cory Dean, Adrian Fernandez, Todd DiPaola and Derrick Wong. Given all these sponsorships we should be good on food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Note – We are currently planning to only host 1 more pre-game tailgate on 11/14 (OR St vs Cal) since the last home game is on the Saturday (11/28) after Thanksgiving when most students will be home. So far we only have 1 sponsor for OR St. If you’d like to sponsor ($100) please let us know asap.
Thanks and hope to see you on Thursday or the following week for USC.
