3rd Annual Theta Chi Golf Tournament Scheduled

Dear Theta Chi Alumni,

Theta Chi Fraternity at California State University, Chico is hosting its 3rd Annual Theta Chi Charity Golf Tournament. Our first two tournaments were a huge success raising a significant amount of money that went in part to help support local charities. In our first year we were able to make a generous donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Chico, and in our second year we were able to make a donation to Chico Green School. This year in order to build a stronger Chapter we will be utilizing our golf tournament earnings to send members of our fraternity to a National Leadership Conference.

Event Details & Registration: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/740993331

We are looking for sponsors and donors to help fund our tournament by donating either money or prizes for the check-in bags, raffle, and silent auction. For $50, your company’s name and logo will be put on a professionally made sign, which will be on display at a tee box for everyone to see. For $200, your sign can be displayed on every cart plus a sign on a tee box. We would appreciate any type of contribution you may be able to provide.

Our fraternity strives to achieve success academically, socially, and within our local community. Over the years we have participated in many philanthropic events such as Up ‘til Dawn to help fund cancer research, on-campus blood drives, and by winning the “Greek Week” title two years in a row recently. We are the largest fraternity on campus, and make every effort to be leaders in the community. We hope that you will consider helping this years tournament be the best one yet.

Thank you for taking the time to consider sponsoring (or donating to) our tournament.

Sincerely,

Brian Robinson

Eta Omega Golf Tournament 2011

Dear Theta Chi Supporters and Potential Attendies,

Theta Chi Fraternity at California State University, Chico is hosting its 3rd Annual Theta Chi Fundraising Golf Tournament. Our second annual tournament was a huge success grossing about $10,000, which aided our fraternity in house maintanence and special events.

The tournament will include a round of 18 holes of golf, multiple contests on the course, a silent auction and catered tri-trip dinner following the tournament. The event will take place at the beautiful Tuscan Ridge Country Club in Paradise, California on May 14th, 2011 (click to sign up).

Our fraternity strives to achieve success academically, socially, and as well as in the community in which we live. We have participated in many philanthropic events such as Up ‘til Dawn, on-campus blood drives, and by winning the “Greek Week” title two years in a row. We are the largest fraternity on campus and make every effort to be leaders in the community.

We would greatly appreciate your participation in this event. The last tournament was not only a huge success financially, but it was extremely enjoyable as well. It will be a great opportunity to enjoy an all day outing with “brothers” and family and also support a cause that can affect everyone. This in turn will also be a great opportunity for our fraternity to show its supporters that we are a positive influence in the community.

We are also looking for sponsors and donors to help fund our tournament by donating either money or prizes for the raffle. For $50, your company’s name and logo will be put on a professionally made sign, which will be on display at a tee box for everyone to see.

27th Annual SF Giants Game Re-Cap (We’re 18-9!)

by Joe Silva

It was a smaller group than usual for the 27th Annual Eta Omega Alumni Giants Game, but it was a beautiful day and a great 6-1 win for the Giants over the Rockies (yes, they actually scored runs that day). We got together in Lot D before the game and put down a variety of brews, ate some delicious sandwiches cooked up by brother Vince (Salame) Licata, ate chips and peanuts, and BS’ed for awhile. Got into the game in the second inning (a record time) and sat in the Upper box seats, row 1. Nice view of the park and the bay from up there.

After watching the Giants crush the Rocks, many of us returned to the lot to quaff another beer, or a water for those driving, and wait for the traffic to die down. An awesome day all around that saw us push our OX record at the Giants game to 18-9!

Successful Alumni / Father's Weekend and Golf Tournament in Chico

by John Wenger

Brothers,

I am happy to report that Alumni Weekend / Fathers Weekend went off without a hitch. Everyone that came up last weekend seemed to leave town with a smile on their face. Overall Alumni Weekend brought roughly 300 Greek Alumni into town (not sure how many Theta Chi) and everyone seemed to have a blast.

Friday night the bars were packed, lines were long and drinks were flowing. Our fraternity house (surprisingly) stayed relatively quite during the night time with the occasional alumnus stopping by to take a look at the re-model.

Saturday the Active Chapter threw a Golf Tournament that included roughly 80 players in the field. Most of the field consisted of actives and their fathers, however, there were a handful of alumni participating as well. The tournament was a blast, the food was awesome, and the prizes for the raffle seemed to never stop! I encourage all alumni to try and participate in the tournament next year; you won’t be dissapointed. After the tournament the actives threw a party on 7th and Chesnut that included 5 to 6 beer pong tables, an open bar and Peter Smith running around trying to “Boat Race” everybody in the joint!

I’m sure a lot of alumni like myself, left Sunday feeling a little sub-par, but I’m sure everyone that attended will be back for more next year!

by Danny Kelchner

This past weekend, on May 1, we put on a Golf Tournament whose participants consisted of undergraduate brothers, their fathers and some alumni who were up in Chico for alumni weekend. Everyone enjoyed a day off golf at Tuscan Ridge golf course located off skyway. They were nice enough deal with us while everyone was drinking and having a great day of golf with their Dads or old friends. After everyone was done with their 18 holes we all met up for dinner and a Raffle of roughly 30 donated items (including a bicycle, a swiss army watch, gift cards, and more). Through everyone’s participation we raised $4,500 – a portion of which goes to Chico Green School. The event was not only a success but a blast for everyone who participated. We are already looking forward to doing the same thing next year and i hope you all will make the trip up and participate.

Undergrads Pull Off Successful Philanthropy to Help Stop Gun Violence

War of the Roses – Spring 2010

During the week of April 5th Eta Omega raised over $3,000 during a four day philanthropy called War of the Roses – to raise money for the Brady Campaign (an organization dedicated to stopping gun violence through sensible legislation). The event consisted of 5 sororities on campus (ΣΚ, ΑΦ, ΑΔΠ, ΑΓΔ, ΓΦB) competing amongst one another throughout the week on a multitude of events, with the men of Theta Chi split up evenly among the sororities as coaches. The event was created and spearheaded by Theta Chi Vice President Andrew Chalmers, who was inspired by the death of his friend in an unsolved shooting to raise money for the cause.

War of the Roses kicked off on Tuesday with a house decoration, designed to instill competitiveness, and points were awarded to the house with the best design. On Wednesday a “Theta Chi Carnival” fundraiser was hosted on campus – with a dunk tank, kissing booth, cotton candy, popcorn, snow-cones, and a booth where you could “Pie an AD Pi.” That event alone raised $550 for charity, and points were awarded based on creativity and money raised.

On Thursday there was a change drive on campus where each cent collected was worth 1 point. However, dimes and 5-dollar bills were assigned negative values, leading teams to pour money into each others collection jars! The day alone raised well over $1,000, and reactions from the campus community were great.

War of the Roses concluded on Friday with a powderpuff tournament and BBQ where concessions could be purchased, and the value of the concession purchased would be worth points for ones team. ΣΚ won the powderpuff game, and the entire event.

The whole week was filled with mostly sober fun, an alien concept to many Greeks at Chico State. Girls were excited to be a part of a competitive event for a legitimate cause, and the bros loved being at the center of over 400 competing girls. Despite it being the first event of its kind for Theta Chi, the week went extremely well and now that people know what to expect it will certainly be even better in the years to come!

Reminder: Theta Chi Golf Tournament in Chico, May 1

from Paul Cesario-Ketchum

Dear Theta Chi, Eta omega Alumni:

On May 1st we are holding our annual charity golf tournament. In order for this event to be successful, we would greatly appreciate if alumni would consider donating prizes for raffle and silent auction, sponsoring a hole (i.e. putting pledge class or logo on a sign), and of course playing in the actual tournament. The weekend the tournament takes place is also alumni weekend. As a fraternity we would like to thank you for everything that you have done for us and hope that this will be an exciting event to attend and to sponsor for the benefit of Chico Green School.

Thank you!
