Help us celebrate our scholarship winners!
Also: Winter Alumni Pep Band and important 2018 dates!
Dear Pitt Band Alumni and Friends,
The Pitt Band Alumni Council invites you to spend an afternoon with fellow Pitt Band alumni and friends at our 4th Annual PBAC Scholarship Recognition Luncheon and Fundraiser, where we will be recognizing the winners of the PBAC Scholarship Awards for the 2017–2018 school year and raising funds for the PBAC Endowed Scholarship Fund:
Saturday, January 20, 2018, 2:00–4:00pm
Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery (at the Waterfront)
171 East Bridge St, Homestead, PA 15210
$35 per person includes appetizers, lunch, dessert, and raffle tickets.
Cash bar available on site.
Registration deadline: Thursday, January 11, 2018. Seating is limited.
Register online now: www.pbac.net/fundraiser.html
Raffles include prize baskets, gift cards, and 50/50. Stick around after the event for a game-watch as the Pitt Men's Basketball team takes on the Duke Blue Devils in Durham, NC at 4:00pm.
All proceeds from the event go towards the PBAC Endowed Scholarship Fund, which provides selected Pitt Band members with a scholarship in their sophomore year, matched in their junior and senior year by the Pitt Alumni Association and the Pitt Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. This year, we were able to honor two deserving students with awards of $1,000 and $500 per year.
