Cavalier Countdown Tailgate in Los Angeles
UVa alumni and friends traveled to Los Angeles, California to share their passion for UVa and to cheer on the Cavaliers in the September 5 football game versus UCLA. As part of the Western Wahoo Weekend, the Virginia Athletics Foundation co-hosted a pregame Cavalier Tailgate with the Office of Engagement and Alumni Association. More than 1,000 ‘Hoos reconnected with fellow alumni over breakfast and a host of fun activities. Door prizes were provided by VAF that included UVa football and 2014-2015 National Championship team items.
In addition to the Tailgate, the weekend was packed with other events including a Wahoo Welcome Reception, Dean’s panel, individual University department events, ‘Hoos in TV panel, Admissions panel, Bar night, Brunch and private receptions. The weekend attendees represented 27 states and graduation years spanning 1959-2015. Alumni also had the opportunity to watch the UVa Women’s Soccer team as they defeated UCLA 2-1 on Friday and tied Pepperdine 2-2 on Sunday. It was a lively weekend and wonderful to see so many UVa fans and alumni travel to support the ‘Hoos.
