2020 Philanthropy Events
Although we were not able to hold our annual King Neptune and Anchor Splash events this spring, we were still able to raise a record-breaking amount of over $15,000 for Service for Sight! Our first annual Donuts with DeeGee event was held September 19th 2019 in honor of Gallant Hearts Guide Dog Center.
Anchor Splash® 2019 was a huge success!
King Neptune and Anchor Splash were held April 3rd and 4th. We could not be more happy with the large attendance from our peers and community members and their enthusiasm throughout the events!
Anchor Splash is our main philanthropy event that we hold every spring to raise money and promote awareness for Delta Gamma's foundation Service for Sight. The first night is a dance competition for all the fraternities called King Neptune, and the next day we hold Anchor Splash which has a dance/synchronized swimming competition for all the sororities. At Anchor Splash, we also hold relay races for all organizations to participate.
Sororities and fraternities participate in relay races while sororities show their skills in synchronized swimming at Anchor Splash.
Every fall we host a fundraiser for Gallant Hearts Guide Dog Center. In the fall of 2018, we hosted our Milk & Cookies event on campus and raised even more money than the previous year.

We also support Gallant Hearts by attending their annual dog walk in Jackson, MS. Every spring, Delta Pi members travel up to Jackson in the the morning to help facilitate a 5K and fun family activities. We love to meet Delta Gammas from other chapters that travel to volunteer at the event with us, and, of course, we love to play with all the guide dogs!
