RECENT CLUB EVENTS


This year’s LA Regional Foodbank event was a resounding success with record 75 Big Ten Alumni, and friends, doing their part in supporting a great local food charity. Working side by side, with that hard Midwestern work ethic in full force, we were able to prepare numerous pallets of produce. It was never confirmed, but there is a good chance the edamame we prepared at the end was extra since we finished so quickly. The Big Ten Club and the other hosting Alumni Associations want to say thanks to everyone who attended this great annual event.
