Chapter Philanthropy and Service
Throughout the school year, our chapter hosts various philanthropy events in order to raise awareness and donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Here are some of our philanthropy events:
Our month long fundraising event, that includes events such as:
- Bids for Kids- We auction off items that were donated by local businesses, our sisters, and other community members.
- Delta Dogs- We partner with a local shelter who brings a group of dogs to campus and students donate to St. Jude for the opportunity to play with the dogs and eat some great food.
- Crawfish Luau- Typically held during Mom's Weekend, we partner with a local brewery to host a crawfish boil for our sisters and their families, as well as other members of the Rhodes and Memphis communities. This is a ticketed event with the proceeds going to St. Jude.
- Giveback nights- We partner with local businesses to have a portion of their revenue for the night donated to St. Jude.
TriHop is an event that takes place every year in the fall semester. Students can buy tickets in advance or at the door and enjoy all-you-can-eat pancakes made by the ladies of Tri Delta. Every year, we also have performances by campus acapella groups, the Woolsocks & Lipstick on Your Collar. Attendees will also hear from a patient speaker!
Sincerely Yours Letter Writing
Our letter writing campaign is one of our biggest fundraising efforts. All of our members write letters to friends & families in order to raise money for St. Jude. Every year, the total amount of money raised just from Letter Writing is a huge surprise!
Fore the Kids
Fore the Kids is our golf tournament, where members, their families, and other students participate in a golf tournament fundraiser. In addition to each team donating in order to participate, each hole is sponsored by local businesses.
Our fundraising efforts would not be successful without the contributions of our friends, family, Rhodes community, and the greater Memphis community, so thank you to everyone who participates in our events each year!
