The winter 2022 issue of Shield & Diamond magazine thanks many Beta Pi brothers for their loyalty and generosity to Pi Kappa Alpha.
Mitchell Goldsmith ’72 is mentioned for having joined the Lily of the Valley Society, a designation awarded to those whose cumulative gifts to PiKA total $2,500 -$4,999. Mitchell is also thanked for becoming Beta Pi’s newest member of the President’s Council. President’s Council members pledge PiKA an annual gift of $1,000 or more.
Tribute donations, in honor of a chapter brother or loved one, were made to PiKA by Larry Gordon ’70, and Fred Rubin ’80 in honor of Bruce Wolfson ’71. Brother Wolfson’s latest achievement was to champion Beta Pi before the PiKA Supreme Council and successfully procured a one-time allocation of funds to be used by Beta Pi undergraduates to cover the costs of travel and lodging when attending Pi Kappa Alpha Inter/National events.
First time Beta Pi donors were honored by the PIKE Foundation. They are Michael Benator ’74, Thomas Brodie ’81, Michael Feuerman ’81, Thomas Fogarty ’81, and Eric Lemer ’89.
As reported in our November 2022 eletter, Beta Pi’s team effort in total donations toward the PIKE Now Chapter Challenge was worthy of a 3rd place finish among all 200 current Pi Kappa Alpha chapters and provisional chapters. In 3rd place among all “ambassadors”, PiKA brothers acting as team captains, was Bruce Wolfson ’71. Beta Pi’s total contribution was $20,366. As a result of Bruce’s effort, $500 scholarships to be used to cover registration fees for PIKE University events was awarded to our chapter.
Kudos to all Beta Pi brothers who generously supported the ideals and goals of Pi Kappa Alpha.
