Join us for our annual Service Project and
As we have done in the past, we’ll provide an opportunity to give back to the community in the morning of July 21st. We will be staffing service projects. Our incoming freshmen are invited to join alumni and other returning students in experiencing Ut Prosim together as we work in our community.
- Project: Promising Pages – Participants will be helping serve the 60,000 children in Charlotte that do not have books at home! The event is from 9-11 AM. Location: The Operations Center is located behind CBI’s headquarters at 4020 Yancey Rd. Charlotte, NC 28217
UPDATE: The service project is full! See everyone who signed up on Saturday!
This year the tailgate event will be held at Reedy Creek Park on July 21, 2018 from 12:00 – 5:00PM. We are excited to have special guests from Blacksburg joining us for the picnic. Voice of the Hokies Jon Laaser and Director of Football Recruiting Operations Thomas Guerry will add some preseason football excitement to the program beginning around 2:00.
The Charlotte Chapter will be providing burgers and hot dogs, water, soft drinks, and beer! We ask guests to please sign up below to bring tailgate appetizers, sides and desserts to share. We’ll begin eating around 12:30 PM. This is a free event for all local alumni and friends! Hokies of the 4-legged variety are welcomed as well 🙂
We have access to our park shelter for the entire day, so we encourage attendees to enjoy the recreational facilities at the park after our program. We will be organizing corn hole and disc golf activities for those interested, or feel free to enjoy the park on your own.
Please note: all alumni, current/future students and family/friends are welcome to attend either or both events!
