Delta Chi Events at the U of MN Homecoming 2014, October 17th/18th

Good afternoon,

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your family out to the University of Minnesota Homecoming celebration the weekend of October 17 and 18. The Gophers take on Purdue at 11 am on Saturday. As usual, the homecoming parade will be held on Friday the 17th starting at 7PM and go east down University Ave. Please join us at the chapter house for a family friendly event that night during the parade. The Twin Cities Alumni Chapter will provide an array of non-alcoholic drinks and light snacks, but feel free to bring an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage of your choosing and hang out with fellow alumni. The festivities will continue after the parade as many alumni will stay to socialize with their brothers and meet the current actives.

Family friendly events will kickoff on Saturday at 8 AM with build your own omelet and bloody bars, along with coffee, juice, and rolls. Throughout the weekend we will sell raffle tickets and host a silent auction to raise money for the Twin Cities Delta Chi Scholarship fund. All donations are tax deductible and receipts will be provided. The silent auction and prize drawing will start at 1030 am. The game starts at 11 am; if you do not have tickets, alumni are encouraged to continue the day’s festivities at a local watering hole nearby as we usually do!
