|Bro. Alvarez - Super Sunday|
A. In the past our Super Bowl Party ended a short time after the conclusion of the game, usually because of time restraints by the establishment that we have rented. This years event is being held in a unique location; The Down & Dirty Motor Cycle Club, there we are able to have use of the location until 2a.m., In the past brothers and guests have wanted to keep dancing and parting well into the wee hours. So this year we are trying something new, by continuing the music and dancing until 2am (Club Omega) . We have also added a raffle for a Big Screen TV, which is included in your ticket price. ( you do have to be present to win and the drawing wont be until the wee hours)
Q. What will the setup be for this event? What can patrons do to entertain themselves?
A. The Setup this year is a lot like past set ups, with food, drink, DJ, Large Viewing screens, vendors and more.
Q. What makes this event so popular?
A. The Super Bowl is viewed by an estimated 130 million Americans, and is the most viewed TV program in the U.S. every year. When you combine that with the men of Omega and a hot DJ, its a perfect mix and creates a very popular event.
Q. How do people get tickets and what do they get for the money?
A. Tickets are available on our web site http://www.gammapi.org/ or by contacting any Brother in the chapter, who can get you in contact with the brothers on the fundraising committee who are tasked with selling tickets; when you consider that your ticket price includes food & beverage including the nectar of Omega (Oil) and the chance to win a big screen television, the ticket price also includes Club Omega until 2a.m. Our guests are getting a great evening for a reasonable price.
|Bro. Powell - Mardi Gras|
A. Gamma Pi Chapter's Mardi Gras Extravaganza is extremely popular because our patrons recognize Gamma Pi men as leaders in our community who have distinguished themselves through timeless service to humanity and they want to be associated with great men who put on great events. Also, people are aware that the proceeds from our Extravaganza goes to support our social action programs and our scholarship efforts. Oh!! Did I mention that people also know that the Ques know how to party and they will always have a great time at our Extravaganza.
Q. What are the new ideas in store for Mardi Gras this year?
A. Yes. This year we have added a theme for our Extravaganza, "The Sensational Seventies". Not only can our patrons choose to dress in Semi-Formal attire, African attire, costume consistent with New Orleans style Mardi Gras. This year they may choose to bring back their bell-bottomed pants, hot pants, mini skirts or platform shoes like they wore in the '70s. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes and best dressed individual and groups.
Q. What about the music? Is "Soul Patrol"band coming back?
A. Yes, indeed. The Soul Patrol Band is back and better than ever. They promise to perform and keep everyone on their feet. Music makes the event and we are fortunate to have Soul Patrol back again this year.
Q. What kind of "spread" can we anticipate? The food at Mardi Gras is always good.
A. We have an outstanding menu again this year: roast beef, baked chicken, Italian meatballs, seafood jumbalaya, and many vegetable and dessert choices.
Q. Why did Gamma Pi keep ticket prices at last year's levels?
A. This year we instituted a series of cost cutting measures and passed the savings on to our patrons, thereby holding our ticket prices at the same level that it has been for the last three years. We work hard to give folks the best bang for their buck and the best time to be had on the planet.
Q. How do we secure tickets now?
A. Tickets can be purchased from any member of the Mardi Gras Committee, by contacting a Brother of Gamma Pi Chapter or purchase online. People may contact me directly at 301-467-2607 and I will make tickets available to them.
