We host one philanthropy event each semester to support Delta Gamma's Foundation, Service For Sight (which you can read up on here).
Our main event is ANCHOR SLAM® , which we revived on the W&M campus in Fall of 2014! It's a pick-up basketball game where teams of 3-5 people register, wear our t-shirt, and compete for a cause. We had 36 teams participate this year, and hope to have an even greater response in Fall of 2018.
Held right on campus in the William and Mary Rec Center, students from all over campus came out to cheer on their friends. We raised upwards of $2000, more than double what we've raised in past years! Next year, we plan to outdo ourselves again.
Each year has a theme. Join DG, and you may get to help decide the next one!
Unlike ANCHOR SLAM®, Delta Gamma's Spring Philanthropy event changes from year to year. The benefactor is always the same (our very own Foundation, Service for Sight, which you can read about here); however, we keep things fresh and surprise campus every year with a different approach to raising money!
Last spring we put on Sweets for Sight. We sold warm cinnamon buns along with hot cocoa and coffee out in Sorority Court. This year, we donated a portion of our profits to Guiding Eyes for the Blind to help train service dogs. We were super grateful for the generous support of those who came out to buy our sweet treats and support our philanthropy.
