Save the Date for Mom's Day

Saturday, April 9th 2016 at 10am

Hotel Vetro

I just want to provide you all with some information on Mom's Day coming up in April.

Mom's Day consists of a nice brunch and silent auction with plenty of mother/daughter time!

  • Be sure to get your hotel booked- campus gets busy in the spring
  • Invitations will be sent to you soon with an RSVP included
  • Send RSVP back with cash or check for everyone attending

Proceeds from the silent auction will go towards the following:

  • Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • University of Iowa Foundation: Chi Omega Scholarship
  • Chi Omega Foundation: Psi Beta Scholarship

Parent's Club also hosts its own raffle in hopes of raising enough money to pay for the Graduation Luncheon in May for the seniors. Raffle tickets can be purchased there.

If you wish to donate a basket for the silent auction a card will be sent with your invitation for you to fill out with a description and approximate cost.

Thank you for all of your help!

Parent's Club

Our organization will help our daughters in the Chi Omega program by assisting the chapter with special projects, organizing events, fundraising and financial support, and volunteer efforts. Our group will ensure that the chapter receives the support necessary to help our Chi Omega women continue to stay focused and continue to be leaders in the University Campus and community.
