Bryan Hartzell performs An Exile’s Toast at the 2nd Annual Chi Eta Frank Norris Pig Dinner on April 30, 2011.
Saturday April 9th, 2011 the Chi Eta Chapter hosted its first spring philanthropy event. The inaugural Bowling Green Spring Luau was held to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky. The event took place at Bruster’s Real Ice Cream on Scottsville Road. The carnival themed luau had much to offer from games like the balloon pop, beanbag toss, duck-o-war, and pie a Fiji to food, face painting, arts and crafts, and inflatable bouncy houses. The fun and games lasted until 7pm, and ended with a concert by local talented Fijis Dallas Wilson, Jordan Minton, and Ben Hussung among others. The sunset and concert was a relaxing finish to a hot, busy, and successful day. With sponsorships from Kohl’s, UPS and Bruster’s the chapter was able to donate over $2,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
