PI KAPPA ALPHA • UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS • SUMMER 2018 J une signifies an important milestone in the Honoring Our Legacy, Se- curing Our Future campaign—plans for the new chapter house will be filed with the City of Austin. As the plans are reviewed, the campaign board is focusing on financing. ere is a significant need for continued alumni support as we progress toward demolition in 2019. To date, we have raised $4,165,495 toward our $5 million fundraising goal. In order to properly fund the project, we must reach this benchmark so the chapter does not have to take on additional long-term debt. Fraternity Means Family Some of you may question the relevancy of fraternities today, especially amongst the negative media stream regarding Greek life. But I ask you to remain faithful. We need to remember that fraternity is where family is made. How many of us met our best friends, our brothers, at Beta Mu? Chances are a Pike brother has been with you through some of the most significant times of your life. We're more than just brothers through Pike, we are one another's best men, mentors, godparents to our children, and counselors in trying times. Giving Strategies I ask that you give to the campaign today in honor or the friendships and family you made in Pike. ere are many methods to make your gi: use the enclosed pledge card and mail your check today, or give online at www. texaspike.com. rough whatever means—whether giving $50,000, $5,000, or $500—we value your gi and your generosity to Beta Mu. Please support your Pike family and show your faith in fraternity by returning your gi today. Yours in Phi Phi Ka, John A.
