On Friday, January 24th, the Tau Omega chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi hosted their annual Dance of the Decades. This year’s theme: future! Students from all corners of campus were invited to come decked out in their best futuristic gear. From Star Trek to little old ladies, we saw it all. As one of the Chapter’s featured philanthropy events raffle tickets were sold, prior to and during the event, for a chance to win Kings of Leon concert tickets (special shout out to our winner Raisa Tikhtman!). Alpha Omicron Pi has always strived to serve the larger community of people both near and far, particularly women and children. Proceeds from this year’s event supported two great causes: the Markey Cancer Center and the Adrienne Dantin Memorial Scholarship.
The Tau Omega chapter’s dedication to philanthropy drives the chapter’s association with the Markey Cancer Center. A large portion of this year’s proceeds will go towards the center. This is only one instance of the many ways that AOII branches outside of our small campus community. Additionally, sisterhood is an extremely important value instilled within the members of AOII. As such, a portion of the event’s proceeds will go towards a sister that may have difficulty meeting the financial commitment to the chapter. Now, check out some of the great costumes below (special thanks to Sarah Allison for letting me feature some of her great pictures)!
