The week of Recruitment can be an exciting and yet stressful time for your daughter. We can help you show your love and support by sending your daughter a Mid-week gift from August 8th until August 12th. You can pre-order the gifts throughout the summer as well as during the week of rush. You have the option of selecting the items you would like to send, or you can give us a dollar amount and let us pick out the items. Don't forget the girls already in house - they are working hard and love to get gifts too!
A work-week gift is for girls who are already in a sorority who are working hard to get everything ready for recruitment week. These ladies work so hard and also deserve a little something to show that you are thinking of them! We deliver these gifts the week before recruitment and the week of recruitment.
Bid Day Gifts
Bid day is Tuesday, August 13th! Make sure to order your daughter something special from Occasions. Bid day packages are filled with Greek items for the sorority that your daughter just joined. You can either call the store, check out our website or stop by the store to pre-order your bid day gifts. We fill each gift in the order it was placed - first come, first served. You can create your own bid day gift, or you can give us an amount and let us create one for you. We receive the bid day list the same time as the girls receive their bids - around 2:00 pm. We begin to immediately fill the pre-orders we have in the order that they were placed. The time it takes us to deliver the gifts depends on the number of orders placed. We begin delivery as soon as we have filled multiple orders and leave them at a predetermined designated place in each house. There will be a sorority member who signs for each delivery. We continue making and delivering baskets until all gifts have been delivered so if your daughter's gift is not in the delivery, rest assured that it will be in the next delivery.
