Every year, the Alpha Alpha chapter hosts and supports multiple special events in order to raise money for St. Jude. Some of these great events include:
DHOP - Short for "Delta House of Pancakes," DHOP is hosted by the chapter every year as a pancake dinner open to friends, family, and members of the Adelphi community. Several sisters cook and prepare pancakes for the guests while others mingle and educate about St. Jude. Tickets are sold both in advance and at the door.
Cycle for a Cure - New for 2015! More details coming soon...
Gold Heart Gala - New for 2016! More details coming soon...
Carnations for a Cure - Centered around Valentine's Day, sisters of the Alpha Alpha chapter sell fresh and colorful carnations in the lobby of the University Center with all of the proceeds benefitting St. Jude.
Sincerely Yours - Sisters of the Alpha Alpha chapter spend a night together having fun and enjoying snacks together while writing letters to friends and family asking for donations for St. Jude.
St. Jude Walk to End Childhood Cancer - Every fall, the chapter heads into Brooklyn to trek across the Brooklyn Bridge in support of St. Jude! Leading up to the event, members work together to fundraise for their team.
Throughout the year, the chapter also hosts tables in the lobby of the University Center to benefit other childhood cancer charities, including Sunrise Day Camp, Alex's Lemonade Stand, Ronald McDonald House, and more.
