ronald mcdonald house

Alpha Delta Pi's national Philanthropy is the Ronald McDonal House charities. Our chapter specifically serves the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus, GA where we help the Ronald McDonald House Inc. provide a "home away from home" for the families of children undergoing medical treatment in the Columbus-Phenix City area. Parents are given the opportunities to break away from the hospital environment, have the support of other families, and ease some of the stress associated with their child's illness. It is a place where families as a whole can feel at home, have the resources to do "normal" home activities, and enjoy the comfort of a warm and friendly environment.

beta omega philanthropy events

Our chapter holds two annual events to raise money for the Ronald McDonal House Charities, "Pie-A-Pi" in the Fall and "Take it to the House" Basketball Tournament in the Spring. This past year, our 2016-2017 philanthropy events raised a combined total of around $26,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities! We are very proud of our efforts for this incredible program, and the ways that we get to have fun while raising awareness about the importance of what this charity program does for kids and their families. 

pie-a-pi

"Pie-A-Pi" is our fall event that is held every year on Auburn University's Greenspace. This event is so much fun for our members because it allows us to have the opportunity to meet and interact with many different people.

take it to the house

"Take it to the House" basketball tournament is our second philanthropy event held every year. This tournament is a 3 vs. 3 basketball tournament held on a weekend in the spring, in one of the Auburn University recreational centers.

top 5 miss homecoming

It was such an honor and a privilege to have 2 of our very own members chosen to be on Auburn's Top 5 Miss Homecoming; our 2016 chapter President, Maggie Smith and Auburn native & current War Eagle Girl, Victoria Starks. Our chapter had the best week getting to love and support both of our candidates, and also getting to spend lots of time together campaigning in various ways throughout the week. This Fall 2016 Homecoming Week was concluded on Saturday, October 1st at the Auburn vs. ULM Football Game, where both of our girls got to be presented on the field at halftime!
 

Maggie's Platform:
Baby Steps

Victoria's Platform:
Magic Moments

The vision for Baby Steps is a nonprofit home for college women in Auburn who are pregnant - many finding themselves feeling like they must choose between their baby & their education. Baby Steps would empower these women to be able to choose both, along with being surrounded by a loving & supporting community. This would be able to meet a need that is not currently met in our college communities across the country. While many universities do offer medical resources, the extent of that care typically dissolves following the birth of the child, leaving many women feeling overwhelmed & alone in attempting to complete their educations. Baby Steps would be something that would make a significant impact on the campus & in the community.

In the fall of 2008, Victoria experienced a whirlwind of life changes that no thirteen-year-old should ever have to endure. In September 2008 she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and then in November, her father passed away from a sudden heart attack. Victoria's family fell victim to the two leading causes of death in America; Cancer and Heart Disease. Victoria took her personal story and turned it into one of hope & victory by celebrating stories of victories over these diseases, and raising more awareness about them. Along with that, she also took the week to raise money for Magic Moments Organization, in which Victoria was lucky enough to have her "magic moment" granted after completing her cancer treatments.

greek sing 2017

We are incredibly proud to say that our chapter won 2nd place in this year's competition!

Greek Sing is a philanthropic event hosted by Auburn Panhellenic that benefits Habitat for Humanity. Although the name may be deceiving, this event is a dance competition involving all 18 sororities on Auburn's campus. Every year, Auburn Panhellenic is able to grant Habitat for Humanity a generous donation raised through monetary contributions from ticket and t-shirt sales. In preparation for this event, the Panhellenic community also contributes by having each sorority send members to volunteer at local Habitat for Humanity sites throughout the Spring semester. 

The 2017 competition was held on Tuesday, April 11th and we were thrilled for our routine to be awarded 2nd place with the theme of "Dollhouse". Our girls had been preparing since January for this event, under the extraordinary leadership of Anna Scott Welch & Hanna Phares, and it was beyond rewarding to see that hard work pay off! 


the alpha delta pi foundation

The Alpha Delta Pi Foundation was established in 1983 to be able to provide support to not only Alpha Delta Pi as a whole, but to each of its members. This Foundation provides a variety of resources that are essential for the educational, leadership, and philanthropic activities of each chapter of the sorority and their members. This Foundation is able to play a large part in providing valuable resources toward strengthening the ability of successfully raising funds for the
Ronald McDonald House Charities.
