And the winner is . . . !

On Saturday, June 9, Team Triple Crown (Paul DeMarco, Kay Hauer, Joan Smith, Karen Smith, Ann Williams, and Pete Williams) won first place at OLLI’s first Quiz Bowl. If you weren’t there, you missed out on a lot of fun and friendly competition.

In addition to having a wonderful evening and helping Friends of OLLI raise money, those present learned the three-letter codes for the five busiest US airports* among other “valuable” facts.

Friends raised nearly $10,000 to go toward OLLI scholarships and other expenses that membership fees and endowment revenue do not cover.

Not wanting to rest on their laurels, the Friends Committee—consisting of Patricia Brandt, Carol Heideman, Gary Hollander, Charlie Jung, Keith Marriott, Dick Wendel, and Pat Wilhelmy and led by the indomitable Greg Rhodes—has already begun planning next year’s event.

Thank you to all who supported Quiz Bowl #1 and helped make it so successful. And special thanks to presenter Johnson Investment Counsel; sponsors Brenda and Carlo Gatti, Carol Heideman and Sam Campbell, Marv and Jacki Heller, Emily Hodges, Gary and Cathy Hollander, Dick Lenz, Doug and Ruth MacCurdy, Keith and Peg Marriott, Jill and Bruce Mitchell, and Greg Rhodes and Sallie Westheimer; and hosts Bill and Patricia Brandt, Ram and Pompy Darolia, Carol Friel, Dick and Carol Goetz, Nancy Herbert, Doug and Sue Iden, Robert Johnson, Charlie and Patty Jung, Nelson Vincent, Dick and Ann Wendel, Ann and Pete Williams, and Karen Zaugg.

We Remember

Marguerite Levy Feibelman
It is with sadness that we mark the passing of OLLI moderator Marguerite Levy Feibelman. She presented both multi-week courses and one-time talks based on her WWII experiences in France, where she lived in hiding and was part of the Resistance. We will miss her friendship and are grateful for her contributions to OLLI’s success.


Dear OWLI,

OWLI v3 jpg 2
I made a donation to OLLI in honor of my favorite course moderator, and the acknowledgment letter came from UC Foundation. Did OLLI get my donation, or did it go to something else at the university?

Philanthropist Phil

Dear Phil,

Not to worry! All donations made to OLLI are processed through the UC Foundation for the sole benefit of OLLI, and your donation is tax deductible (whatever that means for you under the new tax laws!). OLLI uses your generous donations to support scholarships for your neighbors who cannot afford the membership fee, upgrade classroom equipment, keep fees low for everyone, and assure OLLI’s success into the future.

Thank you for your generosity!
