The Alumni Big Event
The Big Event is Virginia Tech’s largest community service event and all alumni chapters are invited to participate! On Saturday, April 7th 10,000 students, alumni, and volunteers completed nearly 1,200 projects across the New River Valley! With this year marking the 18th anniversary of The Big Event at Virginia Tech, it is sure to have our largest turnout yet!
Again this year, we are encouraging all alumni chapters to participate in an “extended campus” version of the Big Event on Saturday, April 6th. All chapters that participate will receive official Big Event t-shirts!
There are three easy steps to making this happen:
- Identify a service project in your community for your chapter to participate in on April 6th
- Publicize the event to your local chapter alumni through web, email, Facebook, etc. Also, please send the project information to Katie Marquis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you would like to purchase Big Event t-shirts for your chapter, submit your order with this form https://goo.gl/forms/NcyAbIf13HYLwzBq2 by March 15. Email Hayden Hovis and Heather Trobridge at email@example.com if you have any questions.
That’s it! Once your project is registered with them, your chapter will be sent t-shirts to wear during your
We look forward to making the Hokie Nation stronger than ever as we come together in one great day of
service! For more information, please contact Hayden Hovis and Heather Trobridge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
