Ronnie Lester a Big Hit at Latest Iowa Club Event

Board Members with Ronnie Lester

On Tuesday May 8th, the Los Angeles Iowa Club hosted a Happy Hour at Barney’s Beanery in Westwood. Special guest Ronnie Lester mingled and with about 30-40 current and former Hawkeyes throughout the evening – signing autographs, taking photos, and reminiscing about the times on campus. He was excited to meet fellow Hawks and remind him of the good ‘ol days on campus when the basketball team was the talk of the town and throughout college basketball. It was a great opportunity to see Hawkeyes from all different classes and current walks of life with the common denominator of bleeding black and gold! Check out our photo gallery of this event!

The Los Angeles Iowa Club wants to thank everyone who attended and stay tuned for additional LA Iowa Club Happy Hours and events! Go Hawks!

LA Regional Foodbank a Success!

The Los Angeles Iowa Club wants to thank the members of the BigTen Club for hosting this event! It was a fantastic event that helps bring food to those in need. The Los Angeles Iowa Club was represented by 3 members (Justin Drake, Kim Schillig, and Alvin Chang). We also met many members representing other B1G institutions which provided a great network of B1G Alums. We have some pictures from this event located in the Photo Gallery. For those that have never done this, I would highly recommend it and come back to visit lahawkeyes.com for future events like this one. Go Hawks!
