A good time was had by all at the OCIEA Holiday Mix & Mingle Networking Event on December 11, 2018 at The Blue Beet in Newport Beach.
Our chapter holds events throughout the year from community service beach days to holiday parties, bar tours, hiking, and everything in between. We also watch Penn State Football every game day at JT Schmid’s in Tustin and the Blue Beet in Newport Beach.
Each year we ship Penn State Berkey Creamery ice cream to Orange County to celebrate the end of the football season and to bring a bit of Penn State closer to our local alumni!
We had a wide variety of flavors to choose from including fan favorites Alumni Swirl, Bittersweet Mint, WPSU Coffee Break, Peachy Paterno, Peanut Butter Swirl, Death By Chocolate, Keeney Beany Chocolate, and a special seasonal flavor Apple Cobbler Crunch.
One of the things we all miss about Penn State is Creamery Ice Cream!
Join us on Saturday, 11/24 for the Maryland game, 12:30 Pacific time, at JT Schmidt’s at The District in Tustin or Blue Beet in Newport Beach, where we’ll be serving up Creamery Ice Cream to all of our members!
At the Blue Beet we’ll have Peachy Paterno & Death by Chocolate, and to cater to the large crowd at JT Schmid’s, we will have a few more flavors to choose from like:
As is our chapter tradition, throughout November we collected donations (both food & monetary) for the Orange County Basket Brigade.
Since 1995, this wonderful organization has been helping to provide all the necessities of a Thanksgiving meal which are given to families in need. This year we collected several bags of food (we had two full Trader Joe’s bags from Blue Beet alone) and over $250 from Penn State fans at JT Schmid’s and The Blue Beet.
We turn 32 today! Yesterday we had a great time at both of our viewing locations, celebrating our birthday as well as the people who founded the Chapter 32 years ago. And Penn State beat Wisconsin, so that was a nice cherry on top!
On Sunday November 18, we’re volunteering with OC Thanksgiving Basket Brigade to treat families to a full Thanksgiving dinner who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford one.
To contribute to our Thanksgiving baskets, please bring an item of food to either of our football viewing parties (at Blue Beet or JT Schmid’s in Tustin) by November 17th.
Read on to learn more about this great cause and how you can help give back!
This month our Chapter is turning 32 years old!
After a long BYE week, we’re finally getting back together this weekend (12:30pm on 10/13) to see the Penn State Nittany Lions take on the Michigan State Spartans. This game is extra special for us alumni, as it’s HOMECOMING Weekend!
