The Cal Poly Pomona Foundation will transform University Park into an out of this world galaxy with free food, live music and entertainment.
The Foundation’s 36th Annual Hot Dog Caper is Thursday, Oct. 3 at 11:30 a.m. and will bring together students, faculty and staff to enjoy free hot dogs, chips, popsicles, drinks and entertainment. Live music, balloon artists, a few familiar friends from a galaxy far, far away and more will be present to welcome all to the space-themed event.
During the event, guests can get their photos taken at the photo booth, get an airbrush tattoo, request a free balloon animal, meet iconic space legends and obtain space-themed treats at a variety of booths handing out giveaway items.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to sample craft sodas from Innovation Brew Works, grab a free popsicle and so much more!
Every year, hundreds of volunteers from all throughout campus, including administrators, staff and athletes, pass out free food and drinks to all attendees. Last year, Hot Dog Caper volunteers served 12,350 hot dogs and veggie dogs, 7,100 bags of chips, 16,248 beverages and 7,776 popsicles.
The Hot Dog Caper is made possible through the Foundation’s partnerships with Cal Poly Pomona, Pepsi Beverages Company, Associated Students Inc., Facilities Planning & Management, Hoffy, First Class Vending and Bronco Athletics.
The Hot Dog Caper is just one of the many ways the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, which opened its doors in 1966, and campus partners give back to the university. Over the past 50 years, the Foundation has given millions of dollars to the university to fund numerous campus programs, scholarships and infrastructure.
