It could be called the grand finale, or possibly the last hurrah. Either way, it is one of the main events on campus this weekend. The Mother’s Day Brunch concludes CWU Family Weekend from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday in the Hal Holmes Dining Room in the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC). Tickets are $9.90 for adults, $7.90 for children under the age of 12 (plus tax). Central students may use their Connection Card and campus meal plan to pay for themselves and their guests. Tickets are available at the door, and this event is open to the public.

The Mother’s Day Brunch is a campus favorite every year and an excellent way to treat Mom to a nice meal while getting to know a little more about life at Central.

“It’s a very popular event,” said Shanae Elquist, Campus Activities student programmer. “And it’s a great way for anyone to get a feel for the college experience.”

This year, the brunch will feature a buffet-style meal with breakfast and lunch selections. A variety of dishes will be available, including eggs benedict and freshly carved ham, along with fully stocked salad, oatmeal and potato bars. A dessert bar and vegetarian options also will be available.

Musical performance

Acoustic guitarist Eric E. will perform throughout the meal.

As a show of appreciation, every mother attending will receive a commemorative mug celebrating Mother’s Day as they leave.

“Last year there were a ton of parents (at the brunch),” said Elquist. “And a lot of the community comes. It’s open to anyone.”
