What an event we had last year, and the upcoming 2020 celebration will be even better. Last year, over 150 greek alumni showed up from 6 to 11 pm to kick off Gasparilla weekend! In 2020, our alumni group sponsors “Friday Greek Alumni Night at the Orlo House” located at 315 South Plant Avenue in Hyde Park. This is a beautiful venue that’s walking distance to downtown Tampa. The Orlo House ballroom is magnificent, with a bigger dance floor, a stage for the band, and outstanding catering service. The evening included heavy appetizers, a carving station, open bar (beer, wine, and cocktails), and a silent raffle of over $15,000 in high quality goods and services. The BIG door prize of the night will be a golf weekend stay at Hammock Beach Resort, which includes 5 star accommodations, and two foursomes of golf at two world ranked golf courses. The raffle will include additional hotel getaways, golf, restaurant certificates, special events, aquariums, museums, 2 tickets on the 2021 UT Gasparilla parade float, sports memorabilia, and so much more. Special thanks to Linda Hanlon, and her team of Tracy Lynn Hawkins and Debbie Peterson for their work in administering the raffle.
The band for the evening will be the “Greg Billings Band,” previously known as “Stranger,” and has been rocking the Tampa Bay area for over 40 years. Various Greek alumni from different fraternity and sorority alumni groups that have attended include: Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Delta Gamma, Delta Zeta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Phi Delta Theta, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Theta Chi, and Zeta Beta Tau.
