View Full Version : Birmingham Alumni Chapter Casino Night Fund-raiser Jan. 27

01-03-2007, 03:16 PM
Greeting fellow Presidents and Alumni,

I hope the holiday season was good to you and your family. For those that don’t know me, my name is Scott Erb and I am the President of the Birmingham Alumni Chapter.

As we are in the New Year it is time to get things up and running. A couple of months ago I sent you an email about our upcoming fundraiser.

We are hosting our first Casino Night. I am asking you to please forward this to all your chapter members. We are hoping for a big crown that will help us in our cause. I am sending the info in pdfs. This includes the letters for sponsors, order forms, flyers, posters, and the official letter.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call. We are also in the process of reserving a block of rooms for our out of town guest.

This will be a fun night and we hope to see you there.

As always Go Trojans,

Scott Erb
Birmingham Chapter
