- the Pub Crawl in the fall
Please join us at these and other happenings held throughout the year. Come out and be part of a great group that has involves everyone from 8 to 80. See you at our next event!

If you would like to learn more about opportunities to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cavalier Admission Volunteer committee reaches out to high school students and guidance counselors through college fairs and information sessions, makes congratulatory calls to newly accepted students, and organizes a send-off party for incoming and current students and their parents in the summer.
The Service Committee plans community service projects for alumni, families, and friends to give back to our community. If you have any suggestions for projects or would like to volunteer, we would love to hear from you.
The Social Committee plans a variety of activities including happy hours, wine tastings, and much more. We are always looking for new ideas!
The Sports Committee coordinates organizes game-watching events for UVA Football and Basketball games.
The UVA Club of the Virginia Peninsula no longer has “members” that pay membership dues.
Instead, everyone is a member and the Club’s events will be open to all. For those events for which the Club charges a fee to attend or participate, it will be a single price, rather than one price for non-members and a discounted price for members.
Instead of paying a membership fee, the Club will instead be seeking donations from its supporters. This change-over will have one major change – the previous “membership fees” will be replaced by (hopefully) your donations, which will be fully tax-deductible.
