Meaningful Men Weekend!

It was a busy weekend for Epsilon Delta! On Friday we had out spring philanthropy event, Dunkin’ Deltas. This basketball tournament raised $2,409.00 for St. Jude! There was a great turnout for the exciting games and food from a waffle truck that gave a portion of the profits to St. Jude as well.

We also had our Meaningful Men Weekend, where we invited fathers, brothers, uncles, and more to come down to Elon. We were lucky to have a group of these men make a team for Dunkin’ Deltas! There were different activities everyday to show them a good time, including a BBQ, golf game, and a Delta Sponsored baseball game. We are so glad they came down and got to spend the weekend with our chapter!

Special shout out to Anna Claire Hughes and Lauren McAllister for making this weekend a success!

One letter. One cause. 50 letters. 

Last night, our chapter participated in our annual “Sincerely Yours” philanthropy event to support our national philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Each sister wrote a minimum of 50 personalized letters to our family and friends, informing them of the amazing work that goes on at St. Jude and asking for support to reach our latest national goal of raising $60 million in 10 years. This commitment marks the biggest commitment by any partner in the hospital’s history and will contribute to ongoing patient support as well as funding Tri Delta Place.

This is the way that we raise the most money for St. Jude and so to see everyone supporting St. Jude by writing letters and enjoying each others company is so exciting! Hopefully we can support St. Jude even more this year!” ~Alaina Schukraft, Philanthropy Chair

In the past, this event has proven to be a large success. Last year, we raised over $70,000 from this event, and hope to only increase that number this year.

The event was also a great sisterhood bonding event. We loved being able to spend time together, all whilesupporting a cause close to our hearts. Throughout the event we were reminded of why we were writing each letter, including an encouraging presentation from a St. Jude representative.

So be on the lookout for a letter in your mailbox. The support of our family and friends makes all the difference!
