Congratulations Jason Milliski!
Congrats, Jason Milliski from Washington D.C. We are happy to see the bike in good hands. We also hear that you're planning to put the bike in your newly build Hokie man cave in Blacksburg. Please send some pics when its complete!
We raised $26,151.71 with the raffle. 55% of the proceeds ($14,383.00) will go to the Virginia Tech Athletic Fund for scholarships and the rest($11,768.00) will go to support the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. We are very pleased with the turnout for the raffle and the contributions we made to the school and our organization.
The HOKIE BIKE is a 2002 custom build for former Virginia Tech football star Mickey Fitzgerald. A native of Lynchburg, Virginia and a national top-10 high school recruit in 1975, Fitzgerald came to Tech in the face of offers from all the major college programs and he starred as a tight end and fullback. He was inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame in 2002. After graduating from Tech, Fitzgerald played professional football for the Atlanta Falcons, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Memphis Showboats. A born entrepreneur, Fitzgerald is a successful businessman in Atlanta and has been a generous supporter of Tech. Fitzgerald has donated the HOKIE BIKE to the Virginia Tech Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon (DEKES) to be the prize in a Fall 2016 raffle, with significant proceeds to benefit Virginia Tech Athletics.
LET’S GO HOKIES!
