St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
In 1999 St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Today, our collegiate members play a critical role in our fundraising for St. Jude with campus events such as Delta Dodgeball, D-Hop and Delta Desserts. Our alumnae chapters support local and regional children’s hospitals and pediatric cancer initiatives across North America and we partner together to support St. Jude’s Walk/Run and Memphis Marathon by forming teams, raising money and volunteering at these events.
More than $75 million raised in support of St. Jude’s mission to find cures and save children since the partnership began in 1999.
In 2014, Tri Delta made one of the single largest commitments by a St. Jude partner, pledging $60 million in 10 years. In honor of this commitment, St. Jude named its on-campus, short-term housing facility Tri Delta Place.
In 2013, Tri Delta celebrated raising $15 million in 3 ½ years to name the Specialty Clinic at St. Jude.
In 2010, Tri Delta successfully completed its $10 million in 10 years commitment in just 4 years to name the Bone Marrow Transplant Patient Care Floor.
In 2005 Tri Delta raised $1 million to endow the hospital’s teen room.
Sincerely Yours is a letter writing campaign that Tri Delta participates in annually. As a chapter, we gather together for a night of sisterhood, fun and philanthropy, as we write letters to family members and friends, encouraging them to donate to St. Jude. Each year, Tri Delta raises about $3.3 million for St. Jude through this campaign exclusively.
DELTA HOUSE OF PANCAKES
Tri Delta's annual Delta House of Pancakes, or DHOP for short, is an event where different chapters around the greek system come together to donate to St. Jude and eat unlimited pancakes all night long. With a live DJ and a dance floor, Tri Delta's pancake feed is still leading the way as the University of Washington's top philanthropic fundraiser. The best part of the night is watching different fraternity gentlemen face off in a pancake eating contest.
TRIPLE PLAY DODGEBALL TOURNAMENT
Tri Delta's Triple Play is a Dodgeball Tournament held here on campus, where different members coach a team of fraternity gentlemen and each team faces off for the title of Tri Delta's dodgeball champion. Each year, the winning team wins an exclusive prize and all proceeds from the tournament are donated to St. Jude.
