The Peninsula Hokie Club held its monthly Hokie Rep meeting on Oct. 25 at Frank Beamer’s American Grill in Hampton, Va. At the meeting the club presented its annual gift to VTAF in the amount of $9700 to Ms. Terry Bolt, Director of Development for the Athletic Fund. This gift is the result of numerous fundraising activities throughout the past year; i.e. golf tourneys, dinners, auctions, concessions, etc. This gift also completes the $35,000 pledge the club made four years ago for the Hahn-Hurst Basketball Practice Center. In addition, the club accepted a more formidable challenge by signing up for a $50,000 pledge over the next five years toward the new football locker room. To successfully meet this challenge will require the best efforts of all our Hokie Reps and club members as they have provided in the past.
Also at this meeting, Roy Burrows, long time peninsula Hokie Rep, accepted his awards for being in the top ten of all Hokies for signing up the most Hokie club members and also for showing the most gain since last year for signing up Hokie club members. Hokie Rep, Bob Ross also was in the top ten of Reps with the most gain in Hokie Club members.
