Chapter News and Events
SOUTH FLORIDA HUSKERS UPDATE (September 14, 2014):
A great victory last Saturday night against Fresno State and now we are on to the Miami game! Nebraska will play the Hurricanes on Saturday night, September 20 with kickoff set for 8 pm. We are hoping for another big crowd for this special game. All Husker friends and fans are welcome to attend with their Hurricane friends too (if you must bring them).
Packy's will be ready for us with their great service. We will be having a great half-time raffle, which helps us raise money for our scholarship fund.
We will continue to collect pairs of new white socks for the St. Lawrence Chapel (http://www.stlaurencechapel.org) for the Homeless in Pompano Beach. The Chapel not only provides the socks, but food and bus tickets to the homeless in our area. Our current count of socks is up to 42. Last year, we collected 250 pairs, so, keep the socks coming (thanks!).

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION AWARD - The first week in October in 2013 was the University of Nebraska Alumni Association's Chapter & Groups Leadership Conference in Lincoln, the South Florida Huskers were given a Corny, which is an award given to various alumni groups each year. The Corny we won was for the Award of Excellence in Communications for a small chapter. It was a nice honor among the chapters nominated!
SCHOLARSHIP FUND DONATION--In 2013, we donated $2,000 and in 2014 we donated another $2,000 for our South Florida Huskers scholarship fund at the University of Nebraska Foundation. Our total so far is just a bit over $6,000 and once we hit $10,000, we will have permanently established our scholarship fund! We really appreciate everyone's continued support!
