My guess is, Sunnydale has a lot of esoteric societies, and this Vampire one just fell into the hands of Ford & Co. Think of it this way. We know the Master is a traditionalist, he would want his familiars. Why grab guys off the street when you can have worshipers? He sets up an "Esoteric Order of Aurelius," they deliver him bodies and services, he makes a couple of them immortal. Then the earthquake of '37 happens, Master is gone. By the year 1997, the Order is just a few old timers, fanatics still hoping for that reward, but mostly meeting up for cards on Tuesday, then every couple of weeks, then not so much. A new young man from LA shows up, claiming to have read about the Society from an old Newspaper clippings, organizes a couple of youth events, effectively takes control of the organization when the last member is "rewarded." They already have the wardrobe, and the resources to rent the special club.
