February - Dinner for Ten allows members to invite their favorite professors to a dinner hosted by Prytanean. This provides an opportunity for the members to get to know a member of the faculty on a more personal level, and is thus a favorite among all Prytaneans. 

Benefit ball

March - Benefit Ball is another yearly event hosted by Prytanean that serves as a fundraiser for Empower Yolo, a sexual abuse and domestic violence center serving Yolo County. This event is open to the public and is held during Winter Quarter. Prytaneans love this event because not only is it for a great cause, but it gives everyone an excuse to dress up and literally have a ball.
