LOS ANGELES - - Annually, the Lions Athletic Fund is why LMU is #LIONSTRONG. The Lions Athletic Fund provides assistance to the annual needs of LMU’s 22 intercollegiate athletic teams through scholarships and team support, allowing LMU to be #LIONSTRONG. And this 2016-17 season got started with the first ever LMU BeerFest benefiting the Lions Athletic Fund.

During the event, the LMU Sports Network caught up with a couple of alums and asked them why they are #LIONSTRONG. The LMUSN talked to alum Gina Podley ’11, a Recording Arts major who was representing one of the many breweries at the first LMU BeerFest. In addition, the LMUSN caught up with All-American Erin Manke ’14, who wants to always remain connected to the Lions. Check out the videos:

Each year the Lions host multiple events to raise awareness and funds for the annual giving needs of LMU Athletics. More than 300 people proved why LMU is #LIONSTRONG by attending the first-ever summer fundraising event for the Lions. With more than 20 breweries in attendance, the event was a success.

Along side that event are newer events, including the LMU Casino Night (held in late January) and the Women in Athletics: Day at the Races (held in October).
