What a better way to forget about Tax Day than to enjoy some Buckeye Football!!  The Scarlet vs. Gray Football game will be on Saturday, April 15 this year.  We will have our traditional block of tickets and a tailgate party.  Game time is usually around 1:00 pm, following a lacrosse game, but that is not yet confirmed.
You can order your tickets now on our website!  The $15 cost includes all the food and beverages at the tailgate (rain or shine – we are “covered”) so bring the whole family!  There will be cheerleaders, the Best Damn Band in the Land, and of course Coach Meyer and JT Barrett will lead the team in putting on a show in the ‘Shoe!
Please include your name, phone and email information when you order.  You can send a check (made payable to Franklin County OSU Alumni) to Leyla Hawkins, 1149 Tillicum Drive, Worthington, OH 43085.


On Saturday, April 1, we will serve lunch at the Ronald McDonald House for families with sick kids at Children’s Hospital.  Volunteers will be needed for two-hour shifts between 10 am and 2 pm to set-up, serve and clean up.  Our menu for this meal is easy to serve: Sandwiches, salads, fruit, and dessert.  Volunteers will also get a free Buckeye T-shirt from the OSU Alumni Association!

If you are unable to help us serve, but you wish to contribute to the lunch, then sponsoring a food item is the easy way to go!  Various donation amounts will help us supply a healthy lunch of sandwiches, salads, fruit, and beverages. Choose an item to sponsor and send us your corresponding gift – we will do the shopping!

 # of Items  ___ Sandwiches @ $5 each
                      ___ lbs of potato salad @ $4 each
                      ___ lbs of fruit @ $6 each
Or you can choose a random amount and allow us to put it towards whatever is needed most.

You can contribute your donation on the link above or send a check in the mail. Checks should be made payable to OSU Alumni Club of Franklin County, and mailed to Ron Kenat, 3962 Winding Oaks Dr., Columbus, OH 43228 no later than March 25.
