Mom's Weekend and Greek Week

It’s April, which means its our favorite time of the year. We are excited spring is on its way, but even more happy for the arrival of Mom’s Weekend and Greek Week!

Mom’s Weekend
Mom’s Weekend ran from Friday, April 3 to Sunday, April 6. On Friday, Mu Chapter members and their moms went to Déjà vu Comedy Club for some fun entertainment. On Saturday the Delta Gamma Chapter house was open from 10 am to 1 pm for moms and daughters to do some shopping and bidding. Director of Special Events, Brittney Bloom (07), did a great job organizing an auction that included a lot of great baskets. The items were all donated by moms and daughters and all money earned will go towards the house funds. Also, the main floor of DG turned into a small shopping mall. We had designers purses and jeans for sale as well as a Vera Bradley vendor. A lot of girls were excited to leave the house with some great items. On Saturday, a lot of members also took their mothers to Les Buorgeois Winery for an afternoon of nice weather and socializing.

Greek Week Update
Sports: This weekend marked the beginning of Greek Week sports. Delta Gamma teams were excited to pair up with the men from Sigma Chi and Sigma Nu to take on the other Greek teams. On Friday night the soccer team played with extra fan support from their moms. On Saturday, the morning started with Basketball and was followed by Swimming, a new event to this year’s Greek Week, in the afternoon. On Sunday, a huge fan turnout helped to cheer the volleyball team on. Pictured right, the volleyball team in their yellows jerseys taking a break and cheering on the boys. Every DG team did a great job and represented the house well with their play and sportsmanship.
