WHITE ROSE FORMAL
This is the event you have been waiting for! Our chapter's 50th anniversary has come and it is time for us to celebrate this milestone. An alumni council has put a lot of effort into making the weekend of July 14th, 2017 a memorable one for you and your family. The headline event will be the White Rose Formal, Saturday evening on July 15th at 6pm. We have rented a ballroom in the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel next to the new Norfolk Waterside District. The event will include a buffet, dinner, awards, dancing, and even a photo booth. For further details of location, time, types of tickets, room rates, etc., please open the attached invitation below.
What better way to show off this great event that to purchase a commemorative shirt. We have designed our own emblem which will be embroidered on the shirt you choose and locally done in Norfolk. After digging through many options online, we have made our shirt selection based on price and quality. Bruce purchased both of the men’s shirts and always enjoys wearing both of them. In the payment link below, it will allow you to choose the brand, color (6 options each), and size shirt you want. You may also wish to change the “HX” and “50th” stitching from white to gold and we have that option for an additional $2. Shirts will be handed out at the White Rose on July 15th, 2017 (email us for a different option). To order the shirts and see more details of each option, see the payment link below.
NORFOLK TIDES BASEBALL PARTY DECK
Come visit with your family for a pre-celebration with your brothers at a Norfolk Tides game the night before the White Rose. We have rented out the Shock Top Party Deck for an hour and a half prior to the game. The tickets you can purchase below include dinner (hot dogs, pork BBQ, fried chicken, potato salad, etc) and tickets to the game. Beer will also be available for purchase. For those that haven't been to Harbor Park, it has a great atmosphere and is located adjacent to Downtown Norfok. The Party Deck has a covered roof to keep us dry or out of the sun and is located in right field. Doors open for our event at 5:30pm on July 14th. We are excited to see everyone there.
