May I give graciously of what is mine...
Our philanthropy and passion as Delta Zeta sisters is Speech & Hearing. We support our national philanthropy, Starkey Hearing Foundation, as well as our local philanthropy, Tennessee School for the Deaf. We also support our national service Project, The Painted Turtle camp. Both our Fall and Spring philanthropy events raise money to support these incredible organizations. This year, we raised over $24,000 and we are so thankful to everyone who helped us achieve this. This past year, our chapter was selected to host the national fundraiser for the Delta Zeta Foundation, and Beta Lambda raised a record breaking $28,000!
HOOPS FOR HEARING
Every fall semester we host our annual Hoops For Hearing fundraising event to support both our national and local philanthropies. Fraternities and sororities compete in a basketball tournament, which happened to be held at The Tennessee School for the Deaf in Knoxville, to compete for the prize of Hoops for Hearing champion!
Greek Olympics is our new Spring philanthropy event. It includes a hotdog eating contest, inflatable games, dunk tanks, corn hole, food, and a silent auction. Members of other Greek organizations participate, as well as our friends from the Tennessee School for the Deaf.
