On May 23, 2015, the Alpha Iota Iota (AII) Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. held its inaugural "Rooftop" fundraiser event known as "Sky's The Limit - A Night Above The City."
The event took place at The Rooftop, located at 1000 14th St. Ste 400 Plano, TX 75074. Cooper's Project Live R&B and Jazz Band kicked off the evening at 7 p.m., and from 9pm-1am, DJ100 provided a soundtrack to a SOLD OUTcrowd. Complimentary Hors d'oeuvres of assorted Italian meats, cheeses, marinated vegetables along with Rosemary Chicken and Angus Steak Skewers, Wood-Fired Stuffed Mushrooms, cheesecake lollipops, and mini chocolate Bundt cakes were served to the over 250 guest. The attendees were dressed in their "Spring Fresh" attire of Sundresses, Seersucker Suits, and Linen. Patrons also enjoyed an assortment of cocktails, were able to fellowship on the cigar patio, or watch the NBA playoffs in the visitors lounge area.
While all attendees were able to partake in an evening of great vibes with like-minded individuals! The main purpose was to raise money for the AII's Scholarship Fund. With the support of each Patron, The Community, and the Brothers of Omega Psi Phi, the Alpha Iota Iota Chapter was able to raise close to $6,000!
Thanks to the fundraiser committee that helped put this event together and the brothers that were immersed in true Omega Spirit and helped "Sell Out" this event with 329 tickets sold. We also thank with sincerity, those who donated to the cause, as well as those who weathered the storm and supported this initiative in spite of the inclement weather!
One of many comments.....
