USA C-Fx Recap

Andrew Gabris ‘16

On April 28, LGO hosted the final cultural function (c-function) of the year.  Volunteers from the two LGO classes showed up early to decorate Walker Memorial.  In order to avoid long food and beverage lines, LGOs paid careful attention to layout and came up with a new and innovative solution for the setup.  We wanted to ensure that everyone would have easy access to the American Pils brewed specifically for the event by Aeronaut as well as the barbecue.  

Over 830 attendees from across the Sloan School made it to the event, which was a record for the school year.  In addition to the enthusiastic Sloanies that made the event unforgettable, we would also like to acknowledge Aeronaut, Boston Consulting Group, American Industrial Partners, and the LGO Program for their generous support of the event.

LGOs Getting Ready for the Big Event

The night’s entertainment began with a hot dog eating contest, which was actually won by LGO 16, Diego Pinhao.  He managed to eat 10 hot dogs in two minutes as well as an additional five dogs in the one minute tie breaker.  From here, a group of Sloanie dancers took the stage to perform a variety of American-styled dances before a student band closed out the night.

Getting Ready for the Hot Dog Eating Contest

As a graduating second year, the event was bittersweet.  It was an amazing night to hang out with all the Sloanies that I’ve grown so close to over the past two years, but this was my last c-function.  It’s hard to believe that spring is here and commencement is just around the corner.  As sad as it is to say goodbye to Sloan, I wouldn’t trade the previous two years for anything.  I’ve learned so much, grown as a leader and had an amazing time in the process.
