Big Red Block Party
On Saturday, November 5th, 2016, the Junior League of Omaha will host its seventh annual Big Red Block Party during the Nebraska vs. Ohio State football game.This fundraiser offers attendees a chance to watch the game on six 10' big screens at the Scott Conference Center on the UNO Campus. Guests will enjoy delicious tailgate-themed faire and have the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of silent auction items. Junior League of Omaha Sustainer Brenda Christensen and her husband Mike Morris will serve as honorary chairs of this year’s event. All proceeds support the league’s training initiatives and child-minded projects. We hope to see you there!
Attendees and sponsors helped us raise funds and awareness that benefit our community projects to help metro-area women and children. These projects include:
- Project Hope Pack - provides backpacks filled with essential items to children entering protective services.
- A Book of My Own - puts books into the hands of at-risk children between the ages of 0-14
- Done-in-a-Day - partners with other service agencies to quickly and effectively make an impact in the community
