Silence The Violence (formerly known as Wine & Cheese)

ThANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO ATTENDED AND/OR DONATED to the 15th Annual Silence the Violence!

For the past 14 years, Mu Mu’s annual event has raised thousands of dollars in support of Rose Brooks Center and the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation. With the health and safety of all attendees in mind, we decided to make the 15th annual Silence the Violence event a virtual bingo event.

On Wednesday, June 17th, we gathered on a Zoom link to play 5 rounds of bingo for exciting prizes, including a $50 Made in KC Gift Certificate, Pampered Chef Baskets, a Chicken ’n Pickle Basket, and a Canyon Farms Experience.

 

We are so excited to announce that we exceeded our fundraising goal and raised over $10,200 in support of Rose Brooks Center and the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation!
