MOUNT PLEASANT-Director of Athletics Dave Heeke will host a special night celebrating Central Michigan University Athletics in southeastern Michigan.  The event will be a “strolling dinner and wine tasting” on Wednesday, May 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the famed Andiamo Italia located at 7096 E. 14 Mile Rd. in Warren.

Join Dave, along with head football coach Butch Jones, head men’s basketball coach Ernie Zeigler, head women’s basketball coach Sue Guevara and a host of other Chippewa Athletics and university personnel for a review of the past year and a look forward to what lies ahead for Chippewa sports.  In addition, we will take the time to give you an exciting update on our new events center progress and are hopeful of adding some other special guests.

We are confident you will enjoy the ambiance that Andiamo Italia provides and the opportunity to informally meet with our coaches and staff.  Certainly we look forward to seeing you away from campus in a tremendous setting that promotes our “Championship Culture.”

The cost for this evening of great food, wine (open bar is also included) and Chippewa camaraderie is just $25.00 per person.  Please RSVP no later than May 8, 2009.  You may register on-line at or call 800.358.6903 and charge to a major credit card.
