Bruin Fan Alliance to Host Youth Community Event on Saturday, August 13th

The Bruin Fan Alliance will hold its annual “Summer Day with the BFA” event for SoCal youth this Saturday on campus in Westwood.

The BFA Former Student-Athlete Ambassadors

The Bruin Fan Alliance will be holding its annual "Summer Day with the BFA". The event is open to any middle-school age Bruin youngsters, as the BFA looks to inspire youngsters and demonstrate our Bruin community spirit.

The BFA has partnered with a LAPD Southwest Division Youth group who will bring a group of youngsters to join us.

Led by the Bruin Fan Alliance Former Athlete Ambassadors that include former UCLA football stars Chris Markey, Reggie Carter, Donovan Carter, Aaron Hester, Dietrich Riley, Isaiah Bowens, David Allen, Sean Westgate and Nick Ekbatani, each youngster will be placed on one of 15 Ambassador-led teams to spend the day bonding with a former UCLA athlete.

The BFA wants to see every youngster feel inspired to go to college, meet new friends and develop a big brother/sister type relationship with their Alliance Ambassador team captain. The day will include a Master of Ceremonies and DJ and should be a blast!
