What a fabulous 75th reunion and celebratory concert! All in attendance and those watching the live stream video noticed the current group was adorned in maroon blazers with the 13 logo on the pocket.

After the last reunion, our 70th, the then assistant leader admired my blazer and indicated the group would love to be in them. Out of that conversation a 501(c)3 charitable fund titled Blazers and Beyond, Inc. was established to supply the group with the blazers. About a year and a half later 28 blazers were delivered and the group has been wearing them ever since. The blazers connect the 21st Century guys with the days of yore and even more important, visually set them apart from all other a cappella groups. After a new member is selected he is presented with his blazer at the Parents Weekend concert, and it’s treated like the green blazer of the Masters.

Now we need the help of the Thirteen Crust alumni to continue this tradition. We want to establish a financial base that will kick off about $2,000 to $3,000 a year to cover the cost of new members blazers. The blazers currently cost about $225. Please consider donating to this cause. $1,000 would cover 5 blazers. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to cover costs in perpetuity.

Any contribution will be appreciated. If you can’t cover multiple blazers or even just the price of one full blazer, please send what you can, $100, $50, even $13 will help. If we get full participation from the Crust Alumni body we will reach our goal. As we sang together, now let’s give together. Please help. Contributions are fully tax-deductible.
