The Delta Beta Omega (DBO) Educational Advancement Foundation Committee hosted a wine and cheese fundraiser on Sunday, May 22 benefitting the Grace Strauther Endowment Fund. The fund has been established; however, in order to award scholarships, the fund must be capitalized at a minimum of $20,000.
The fundraiser was held at the beautifully adorned home of George and Eula Saxon Dean. Dr. Eula Dean is President of the Delta Beta Omega Chapter. Members of the chapter and guests enjoyed an array of delectable appetizers, main dishes, desserts, wines, and cheeses. The event was well-attended and everyone echoed how much they enjoyed supporting the beautiful, lovely and dedicated Grace Strauther, a member of DBO and 20th Far Western Regional Director of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
