Chapter Philanthropy and Service

 

The Delta Upsilon Chapter of Delta Delta Delta hosts 3 philanthropy events every school year to raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Every year in the spring, OWU Tri Delta hosts Pasta for Life. Pasta for Life is an event in which students donate food points for us to purchase food through Chartwells. Chartwells helps us in creating an “all you can eat” pasta dinner night for the Ohio Wesleyan and Delaware community. Each individual pays a $5 dollars entrance fee in order to participate in this dinner to raise money for the children of St. Jude. In addition to food, we announce information about the money raised and how it impacts the lives of hundreds of children who face life threatening cancer and/or disease. Also, each year we are very fortunate to have a local St. Jude patient come and speak about what St. Jude means to him. He is a very brave and talented young boy who inspires those around him with his story. Lastly, to raise money, we have several basket raffles during the event in which the contents have been entirely donated.

In addition to Pasta for Life, each year we have Sincerely Yours. Sincerely Yours is an event in the spring at our Tridelta house that is just for the sisters. Each sister is responsible for writing and addressing 50 letters to family, friends, etc asking them to donate to St. Jude. This is our primary source of fundraising for St. Jude. 

In the fall, Tri Delta hosts Kicks for Kids.This is a kickball tournament in which various teams pay an entrance fee to participate. It is a fun event that gets the OWU community involved. 

I am proud to announce that in the 2016 academic year, Ohio Wesleyan Tri Delta raised over $20,000 dollars for St. Jude. I am so incredibly honored to be a part of such a phenomenal group of women who truly understand the definition of unselfish leadership and the importance of giving back.
