Epsilon Zeta Centennial

Celebrating 100 Years

Make plans now to attend our blowout centennial event, March 5-7, 2021 in Orlando, Florida. You will not want to miss this special celebration of our proud 100-year legacy at the University of Florida!

The weekend festivities begin on Friday evening at the Panama Jack corporate headquarters, hosted by brother Jack Katz (EZ 1125). Saturday activities will include a special initiation of “bull pledges” from years past, a rooftop reception, and Centennial Gala at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The weekend will conclude with a brunch at the Grand Bohemian Hotel on Sunday morning.

Registration materials will be sent soon. However, hotel space is limited, so please reserve your room now by calling the Grand Bohemian at 407-313-9000. Mention Sigma Nu to get the special $195 room rate.

Centennial Celebration Venues & Details

Downtown Orlando, FL

The Grand Bohemian is one of Orlando’s finest hotels and is located near the Panama Jack Warehouse, as well as the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts. Reservations can be made by calling (407) 313-9000.

 

Jack Katz (EZ 1125) is the founder of Panama Jack and launched the successful sunscreen and lifestyle brand decades ago. Jack has kindly offered to host Friday’s night’s event (March 5, 2021) at his Panama Jack headquarters — a kick off to the weekend’s festivities that you simply can’t miss!

 

Before the initiation and Saturday evening events, we intend to offer excursion opportunities to entertain brothers, spouses, and special guests. (Incidentally, if you would like to suggest a bull pledge for full initiation into Sigma Nu, email Stefan_Gleason@Yahoo.com or call him at 703-856-7399.)

 

We can partly thank Brother Jim Pugh (EZ 1013) and his wife, Alexis, for the views we will enjoy from the Dr. Phillips Center for the Arts rooftop on Saturday evening. Brother Pugh is Chairman of the Arts Center and a major benefactor behind this high-class Orlando attraction. After enjoying the sweeping views of the Orlando skyline from the Dr. Phillips rooftop, we will head downstairs to the Devos Room for our Centennial Gala. Brothers will be recognized for lifetime achievements and service to the fraternity, and new memories will be made.

 

Registration materials will be sent out soon. However, if you have questions or comments, please email Stefan_Gleason@yahoo.com or call him at (703) 856-7399. If you wish to help with the host committee, email Harrison Magoutas at harrison@voltihost.com.
