The White Rose Ball is a cherished event among the Duquesne University Community, which brings in students, parents, alumni, faculty, and many outsiders from the Pittsburgh area to help raise support for the American Gold Star Mothers organization.

Over the decades many sons and daughters have given the ultimate sacrifice with their life, so that we may continue to enjoy the freedoms that we cherish.  However, for each soldier who has died, there is a father or mother mourning and experiencing a pain she should never have to go through – the loss of their child.     

 

Since World War One, the American Gold Star Mothers have been perpetuating the ideals of Americanism for which their children had so gallantly fought and died for. These mothers give many hours of work and personal service in hospitals for war veterans and their families. They stand tall and proud by honoring their children, assisting our veterans, supporting our nation, and healing with each other. For these reasons, the Brothers of Sigma Nu Fraternity at Duquesne University are proud to support the American Gold Star Mothers. In our eleven years of running the event we have raised over $100,000 for the American Gold Star Mothers and look to continue this wonderful relationship.

 

On October 15th, 2016 at 6:00PM, the Brothers of Sigma Nu, in partnership with the Duquesne University Community, will hold the Eleventh Annual White Rose Ball in the Union Ballroom. At the event we will honor these courageous women and their fallen sons and daughters, as well as raise money so that they may continue to live out their legacy of serving our nation.

 

The money raised from our auction will be donated to the mothers. These women give their time to many veterans and their families.  Not only are they struggling to cope with their loss; they are also trying to make a difference in the world. Working together, we can help the families of those who have given their lives for our freedoms.

Thank You and God Bless.
