LA Kings vs. Chicago Blackhawks Recap
February 25th was the date the Big Ten Club and Northwestern Alumni Association visited the Staples Center for some good old fashioned hockey fun with plenty of puck slinging, board crashing, and fist throwing. The Blackhawks put up a valiant effort but, in the end, not scoring a goal when your opponent scores four equals an unhappy flight home. LA’s Dustin Brown was the star of the game when he capped off his hat trick with a short-handed goal causing the rink to be inundated with hats. Let it be known that former club president Derek Hildebrandt, an “avid” LA fan, did not throw his hat on the ice following the goal even though it is obvious in the photo that we were close enough to do so. The night finished with a private Q&A session with LA’s Kyle Clifford who also signed some memorabilia for the group. It was great outing for both clubs and it could not have happened without the expert planning from our Vice President, Marc Goldsmith.

LA Regional Foodbank Service Project
April 21st, 8:45am – 12pm
LA Regional Foodbank
1734 East 41st Street
Sign up by April 18th at our eventbrite page.
We have fun. We do good. We'd love you to volunteer with us Saturday morning, April 21st, for our Club's annual community service project at the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. Please RSVP by 4/18.
Our goal is to have 50 Big Ten friends to volunteer. The Foodbank is a non-profit organization that solicits, stores, and distributes donated food and grocery projects to charitable agencies throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
As we've done in past years, we'll sort, clean and repackage donated items for a morning under the direction of the Foodbank staff and then, if there's interest, we'll head off to lunch at a local restaurant. This is always a rewarding event to participate in, it's free, and you will receive good karma for another year.
Please note: the minimum age to volunteer is 14.
Co-Sponsored by the
Northwestern University Club of Los Angeles.
Questions? Jim Jacobs, Big Ten Club Vice President (NU) at email@example.com or call him at 626.334.5676 (home).
