The Cheyney University Alumni Chapter of Delaware held another successful and fun filled Soiree on Saturday June 11 at the Holiday Inn Select Hotel 630 Naamans Road in Claymont Delaware. Cheyney University Council of Trustee members Lynette Brown Sow and Sam Patterson, administration and faculty members Dr. Suzanne Phillips and Coach Johnson CUNAA board members Junious Stanton, Marion Haliburton, Gaynelle Turner-Lewis, Sandra Countley, Marilyn Clark along with Alumni Director Gregory Benjamin, joined alums who traveled from New York, Maryland, Harrisburg Pa, Philadelphia and surrounding areas to support the Delaware Chapter and have a great time. The DJ kept people on the floor with a mix of Ol’ School favorites, line dance and club music.
The chapter raffled a variety of gift baskets and two over night stays at the new Crown Plaza hotel to the delight of the winners. Several of the party goers took advantage of the special hotel rate negotiated by the chapter to stay overnight. The Delaware Chapter is proud of winning the 2011 Chapter of the Year Award and fund raisers like their Soiree is one of the reasons they won the award.
