Tri Deltas have a lot to celebrate this summer at the inaugural St. Jude – Tri Delta Celebration!
Over 300 collegiate and alumnae members, special guests and key stakeholders have convened in Memphis, Tennessee, July 12-13, 2017, to celebrate Tri Delta’s passion for serving others and commitment to our Purpose through support of our external philanthropic partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In addition to a special honor Initiation and sisterhood night, members have been inspired by guest speakers and have had the chance to recognize their hard work in raising funds and awareness for St. Jude throughout the 2016-2017 academic year.
As part of the celebrations, Executive Board Director Nicole Hughes, Washington State, was thrilled to announce that Tri Delta has raised over $27 million in three years to contribute to Tri Delta’s $60 million in 10 years commitment – the single largest fundraising commitment by a St. Jude partner in the hospital’s history. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, this milestone brings Tri Delta’s grand fundraising total for St. Jude to over $55 million since the partnership began in 1999.
Members will spend their remaining time in Memphis visiting the St. Jude campus to see Tri Delta’s hard work brought to life within the hospital’s grounds, and top off a fantastic experience by tasting some famous southern barbeque.
