Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch?

On Tuesday, Sept. 30, Cal Poly Pomona will welcome students back to campus at the 25th Annual Hot Dog Caper. Students, faculty and staff come together in University Park to enjoy free hot dogs, chips, ice cream and sodas. First held in 1984, this event is a much-loved tradition on campus and provides a friendly welcome with free food and fun activities.

Commander Chuck Street, the popular traffic reporter from 107.7 KIIS-FM will descend from the sky, landing his Jet Ranger 1 Helicopter for Diet Pepsi on the grass and will kick off the event at 11:30 a.m. Festivities also include music from a DJ, performances by the Bronco Pep Squad, games and more. More than 12,000 hot dogs will be distributed by a team of more than 400 campus volunteers, including administrators, staff and athletes, who will wear the collectible Hot Dog Caper T-shirt.

The event is sponsored by Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., Associated Students Inc., Pepsi Bottling Group and North County Vending. For more information on this event or to volunteer, contact Laura Orozco at (909) 869-2912 or lauraorozco@cpp.edu.
