45th Anniversary Celebration

Overview

Join us this November to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Michigan Theta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon! This year we will be at The International Banquet Center in the heart of Greektown in Downtown Detroit.

This will be an amazing event for our chapter, as we will be completing our fundraising for the Sigma Phi Epsilon Memorial Lecture Garden. As you know, the garden has been funded by the Endowment Campaign we kicked off at the 40th Anniversary Celebration. We’re grateful for your 5 years of donations and support, and look forward to your continued support as we head into the future. We will also be presenting this year’s Burning Heart, Volunteer Excellence, and Career Achievement Awards, to name a few!

Basic Breakdown

Prior to the main event, all brothers are invited to an Exclusive-to-Brothers presentation of the current Epsilon Ritual from the Balanced Man Program at 5:30pm. The Ritual will take place in the Olympus room at the International Banquet Center, while Non-Member Guests of the Chapter are invited to socialize in the main ballroom and will be offered an assortment of h’ordeuvres and early access to the Open Bar (if separate bar privilege was purchased at the door).

After the ritual, all guests are invited to mingle until 7:00pm when the actual event will begin. Dinner will be provided, and is a choice of Chicken, Salmon, or a Vegetarian option, which is picked while filling out the required information on the Eventbrite page when purchasing a ticket. Multiple selections of desert will be provided as well for those with a sweet tooth!

Towards the end of dinner, we will introduce our Key Note Speaker and spend time filling everyone in on the excellent things our Alumni and Undergraduates have been doing, including awards and some of the amazing things our fellow brothers have been up to. Also, as stated above, we will also be completing our fundraising for the Sigma Phi Epsilon Memorial Lecture Garden which should be constructed next summer! We will also be presenting this year’s Volunteer Excellence and Career Achievement Awards to some of our exceptional alumni!

At the end of the formal portion of the event, Brother Joe Luellen will be invited to the DJ booth to inspire us all to tear up the dance floor. This will also be a great time for everyone to socialize with their past Pledge/Rush Classes, meet new brothers from the past and present, and to take full advantage of the open bar!

Afterglow Detroit Coney Dogs, Sliders, and Pizza will also be provided later in the night for those who tire themselves out dancing and socializing and need something to snack on as the event continues to the end of the night.

The Atheneum Suite Hotel is attached to the venue, so there will be an easy access for those who have decided to stay the night in the heart of the Motor City!

If you have any questions or wish or to volunteer, please contact the 45th Anniversary Celebration Coordinator Brother Joe Kuzdal at jkuzdal@ltu.edu or call him directly at 616.295.4789.
