Spartan Fall Fest 2012 was held on September 21st, at the Heartland Brewery in New York City’s Empire State Building. Spartans ranging in graduation year from 2012 to those who graduated over 50 years ago had the opportunity to meet each other and build upon their common Michigan State experiences.

On December 6, 2010 Sparty visited with the Alumni Club of Greater NY at Mercury Bar East in New York City to raise money for the V Foundation. The event was able to raise $630 and all of the NY area alumni were thrilled to be able to see our beloved Sparty within the shadow of the Empire State Building.
Thanks to all who bought tickets from our club for the game last Tuesday night. You were part of the largest group we ever had for one of our events with 626 tickets sold by our club.
As you will see in the photo some did manage to have a good time even though the game did not have the result we all would have hoped for.
