Putt for a Cure and Dude for St. Jude
Each spring semester, Phi Xi hosts our annual fundraiser, Putt for a Cure. This family friendly putt-putt tournament is widely attended and our most beloved event. Teams sign up to compete for categories such as 'Best Team Costumes', 'Best Personal Score', 'Worst Personal Score' along with many others. While golfers are putting away on the course, others sign up for a silent auction. All proceeds benefit our favorite children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We also host Dude for St. Jude during this semester. Throughout this week-long event, a fraternity man from each chapter competes to raise the most money for St. Jude. Contestants gain points based on monetary donations, social media challenges, and more. Whoever raises the most money by the end of the week is crowned "Dude for St. Jude"!
Delta House of Pancakes and 5K in a Day
In the fall, Tri Delta hosts DHOP, an all-you-can-eat breakfast food event! This event is filled with tons of food and entertainment at the Tri Delta house which makes it one of our favorite events of the year. Tri Delta also hosts "5K in a Day," which is a day-long event where we try to raise $5,000 or more for St. Jude. Throughout the day, members promote the fundraiser on social media and try to convince friends and family to donate to St. Jude. In Fall 2018, we raised over $13,000 in one day!
