Mom’s Day is an event held every year to celebrate the mothers of current Omega undergraduate brothers. We are proud to boast the largest Mom’s Day on campus, hosting more than 250 people participating each year. Mom’s day traditionally includes appetizers, a reception, silent & live auctions, presentations on the year’s events and an evening banquet. While Moms Day programming is focused on moms, husbands and family members may attend, too.
Mom’s Day also kicks off with the arrival of the Pi Kapp 100, a 100km bike ride from Zionsville which raises funds for our national philanthropy, The Ability Experience. The arrival is early afternoon, which allows moms to spend time with their sons until a mid-afternoon reception. Then in the evening there is a banquet held away from the house. The specific timeline of events will be emailed to moms.
You can see photos of past Moms Day events under the photo gallery tab on this website.
Here is an abbreviated story:
Nearly 300 people participated in Moms Day 2018 at the chapter on April 14. Activities included the arrival of the 19th Annual Pi Kapp 100, a charity auction and an evening banquet.
The Pi Kapp 100 team, consisting of 28 riders and crew, fought early-morning cold and rain, to complete the 100-kilomter ride to campus around 12:45 p.m., Saturday. Riders included Ability Experience CEO Basil Lyberg, chapter alumnus and national AE staff member Mike McBride along with all nine of the chapter’s 2018 Journey of Hope cyclists. Also, five fraternity members from four different chapters participated as part of their regional training for summer cycling events for national fraternity.
President Nate Longo outlined some of the chapter achievements including:
- No. 1 in fraternity philanthropy dollars raised in Summer/Fall 2017 with $112,354
- No. 1 in fraternity service hours with nearly 5,400
- No. 2 in average fraternity grades with 3.26
- No. 6 in chapter size at 145, when the fraternity average was 86
- Various national awards including Star of Hope (top Ability Experience chapter)
- 2018 winner of the RB Stewart Award as Purdue’s top fraternity.
“We are so grateful for everything these members are able to accomplish, bettering our community and bettering ourselves as men in the process,” Longo said. “I’d personally like to thank all of the moms and families, either with us this evening or not, for raising such a great group of young men.”
Journey of Hope alumnus Drew Rudman talked about his experience riding cross-country as well as the various things the chapter does in service to others.
Mary Moeller, mother of two Pi Kapps, talked about her love for the fraternity and its outreach programs.
And keynote speaker Basil Lyberg, CEO of the Ability Experience, lauded the chapter’s outreach for people with disabilities and presented a $6,500 check for Lafayette Jefferson HS to support the special needs program there.
Moms Day 2019 is scheduled for Saturday, April 6.
