FarmHouse took home 1st place in the Mr.Anchor Splash competition, with the very talented Rudge Lones performing! 

Ruth Billow, who was blinded in a childhood accident, made an impassioned plea to the Delta Gamma Convention in 1936. She asked that Delta Gamma make a difference in the lives of those with limited or no sight. Her wish was also to help society appreciate the talents of those who are visually impaired.[12] Delta Gamma gives more than 150,000 Service for Sight volunteer hours each year.[12] In 2013, the Delta Gamma Foundation helped to grant over 174,000 dollars to 26 different Service for Sight organizations. - "Delta Gamma."

FarmHouse Rocks AXO's Mock Rock 2014

 The men of FarmHouse came in second place for the dance competition portion of Mock Rock! At the end of the day, we hope to have raised awareness for the cause of AXO's Mock Rock: domestic violence.

 

  • One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
  • An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
  • Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police.

We hope that by bringing awareness to this issue, that we can help put a stop to domestic violence.
