Friday’s post game banquet was held at one of the largest Beach Houses in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. The boys lived large as steaks were served. Brother Richard Bartnik attended and presented an update on the House and discussed the current $500,000 Capital Campaign which is designed to raise funds to renovate the House. The presentation was well received and it was agreed that the Alumni wishes the House at 523 South Allen to be Theta Chi’s House for a long, long time.

The party continued on Saturday as some Brother’s played golf at a Par 3 Golf Course and then another gathering Friday night to celebrate the running of the Kentucky Derby.
