Big Ten Club Website – Help Wanted
Our Webmaster Steven Green will be President next year, and he'll have plenty to do for the Club. We are thinking of redoing the website and asking for a volunteer who can add content regularly and keep it updated. This is a very important part of our updated Communication plan, and help here would be very useful and greatly appreciated. The ideal person would have web design experience, a little graphic art knowledge and 3-4 hours a month available to help the Club. Please contact Alan Freeman, Communications Committee Chair at afreeman@bestOCevents.com or cell (714) 390-5190 if you would like to help in this important position.

For 22 years, the Los Angeles Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association (PSULA) has supported Hillsides, a foster care children's charity, through volunteer service. At Hillsides, children who bear the emotional scars that result from child abuse and mental illness are given a safe place to call home. We are proud of our long legacy of support for Hillsides. Their annual benefit represents the primary fundraiser that allows them to continue the work they began in 1913. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are raised each year at this fundraiser. NBC 4's Fritz Coleman will serve as master of ceremonies and celebrity auctioneer. This year, our chapter will be providing volunteers for "Road to Emerald City". Our volunteers will be assisting with guest check-in, as well as the live and silent auctions. Our service ensures that the event runs smoothly, and is greatly appreciated by Hillsides! For more information on Hillsides, please visit: http://www.hillsides.org/index.php.
