Tri Delta Tribune
Alpha Pi Chapter - April 2014
Letter from the Philanthropy Chairwoman
This past weekend, we held our annual Flapjack Attack on Saturday from 11am-3pm. We had 12 co-sponsors and the College Park Volunteer Fire Department and FIJI helped put on the event. With over 500 tickets sold, more sold at the door and a raffle that had many great items, we surpassed our goal and raised over $5,500!
I am happy to say that from this school year alone (2013-2014), the Alpha Pi chapter has raised over $56,000 for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! Thank you for all you have done to help us achieve these goals.
Greek Week 2014
Athletics include soccer and basketball and we are thrilled to have such strong athletes competing on our teams. This year, we are working with Terps Against Hunger to package packets of food that are nutritionally balanced and are distributed to people who may struggle to afford sustainable meals. Each year our skit is led by some of the talented women who have been on the dance team or who have a history of dance and choreography. The dumpster painting competition is a great way to show Greek pride and adds some excitement to the ordinarily plain green dumpsters around campus. At the end of the week, the points that each matchup receives form the events throughout the week are tallied up and the Greek Week committee determines a winner!
Greek Week has always been a great way for newly initiated members to get involved with the chapter and get to know some of the older women even better. We are all very excited to be a part of Greek Week as it is a great way for us to meet new members of the Greek community and to contribute to the greater Maryland and DC community!
