As always, special thanks to our 145 alumni who contributed over $22,000 in 2017-2018 annual dues!
We welcome your participation for 2019. Your contributions help the House Association offset mailings such as our newsletter, our website, and database management expenses. The first 25 alumni contributing over $500 in dues will receive a small, wooden Georgia Beta Bowl carved from the remnants of the Ross Crane House magnolia.
Speaking of the Ross Crane House, it is important to note that it has been 12 years since we finished the $2 million restoration of the house and grounds at 247 Pulaski Street. Thanks to our Athens stewards, the Minerva Club, and the chapter, the house looks as presentable as when we cut the ribbon prior to the “blackout” Auburn game in November 2007.
We especially want to relay our continued appreciation to all the alumni contributors from the 2007 capital campaign. The good news is we foresee no imminent need for another capital drive. We continue to rely on annual dues though.
To that note, please make your gift, right now, by clicking the “Support the Campaign” button on the right hand side of this page.
As always, on behalf of the Georgia Beta House Association, thank you for your support and loyalty to Georgia Beta. We look forward to seeing you in Athens this fall.

P.S. The first 25 alumni contributing $500 or more in 2019 dues will receive an etched bowl carved from the remnants of one of the historic magnolias that had to be removed from the front lawn of the Ross Crane House in 2018. This very limited edition bowl will only be available to the first 25 alumni who contribute $500 to the 2019 dues campaign. Please click “Support the Campaign” to reserve your bowl accordingly. Bowls will be shipped prior to October 1.
P.P.S. Save the Date for Doc Banks Alumni Tailgate on Saturday, November 9, at the Ross Crane House. There will be an open bar for all registered alumni. Details and times forthcoming.
