Students to Invite Grandparents for Lunch & Visit

Last year's Grandparent's Day was incredibly successful, and we are expecting this year's event to be that and much more. This is a wonderful afternoon in which students can introduce their grandparents to the Bellarmine community. We ask that parents encourage their student(s) to invite their grandparents to join them for lunch and a special visit to the Bellarmine campus.

Parents Encouraged to Pre-Purchase Lunch for Grandparents & Students

Grandparent's Day at Bellarmine includes a buffet lunch at a cost of $17/person. In order to avoid any confusion on the day of the event, we ask that you pre-purchase lunches for your grandparent(s) and student(s).

Event Sells Out; Reservations Required by Feb. 16

This event typically sells out, so we encourage parents to make reservations early. Reservations are required by Thursday, February 16 and can be made online. Please know that other relatives or friends of students can substitute for grandparents. Reservations can be made by completing the reservation form (see link below), and submitting it with a check to the Advancement Office.


The success of this very special day would not be possible without the terrific help of our wonderful parent volunteers. There are many ways you can help with this special event including set-up for the event, being a greeter at the door, escorting grandparents and students to their tables, and helping clean-up after the event. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Lynn Miller at (253) 761-3542 or or download and send in the form below.
