Dad’s Weekend Recap

Another great Dad’s weekend came to a close Sunday morning, as proud SAE father’s departed for their homes after a fun weekend with their sons.  This Dad’s weekend featured an exciting poker night, a fun tailgate , and a blow-out victory for the Hoosier football team.

On Friday night, dads arrived and got to play poker with their sons at the house.  Brothers and their fathers played black jack, poker, and various other casino games putting their own money on the line.  The night was meant for more than just a little competitive fun; however, as 10% of the winnings went to the Children’s Miracle Network.  SAE Indiana Gamma raised $670 through the event.

Jake with DadOn Saturday, the boys and their dads woke up bright and early to go tailgating before the Indiana Football game.  Brothers and dads had a great time with the ladies of Alpha Omega Pi and their fathers.  The tailgate featured lots of good food and cigars supplied by brother Grant Pendry.  The football game was a blowout, with IU winning 49-24.  The team was led by Tevin Coleman’s 150 yards rushing and 2 TDs and Shane Wynn’s 127 receiving yards and 2 scores, coming on catches of 76 and 45 yards.

Nate and Dad

Dad’s weekend was a big success for SAE.  The brotherhood saw a home football win with their dads and raised almost $700 for our national charity as well.  We can’t thank our dads enough for making this weekend one of the best of the year thus far!



Dad’s Weekend at SAE

The weekend of October 3rd and 4th marks SAE’s Dad’s Weekend.  Numerous activities have been planned for the dads and brothers, primarily the IU Football game and Casino night.

IU Football

IU (2-2) squares off against North Texas (2-2) of Conference USA.  A lot of brothers and fathers will be attending the game and subsequent tailgate.  This non-conference battle will be IU’s last non-conference game of the year, and should be considered a must-win for the team.  This event will provide some great entertainment for brothers and their families.

Casino Night Philanthropy

The brothers in SAE will be hosting a casino night for their dads, but with a twist. 10% of the pot will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network, SAE’s primary charity.  This allows for brothers and their dads to help raise money for charity while having some fun.

Most importantly, Dad’s weekend is a time for brothers to be reunited with their family, so we expect some good times to be had!  We’re always glad to see a house full of proud fathers and even some alumni. A great weekend to look forward to.  We’ll have recap of the events and any earnings from the casino night by next week.
