Chapter Philanthropy & Service
Delta Gamma Chapter hosts a major event each semester to raise money for our philanthropy. During the fall semester, we host Trick or Treat for Change on Halloween. For this event, we go the community trick or treating but instead of asking for candy we ask for spare change. This past year, the event raised over $2,200 for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation.
During the spring, we host Pearls and Poker which is a poker night for the community. The proceeds are then donated to our philanthropy. The event was first planned by Lily Dugan and has been since continued in her memory.
Through Delta Gamma's philanthropic efforts, the chapter has gained membership to the Jewel Society for 4 out of the past 5 years. To gain membership in the Jewel Society, chapters must raise $2,000 or more for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation annually. This is quite the honor to be given to an Alpha Gamma Delta chapter!
