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 McDonald House Charities, "ADPizza" 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.
"ADPizza" is our fall event that was just implemented this year and held on Auburn University's Greenspace. This event is so much fun for our members because it allows us to have the opportunity to meet more Auburn students and raise money for the Ronald McDonald House.
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 one of our very own members, Camille Smith, chosen to be on Auburn's Top 5 Miss Homecoming! Our chapter had the best week getting to love and support our candidate, and also getting to spend lots of time together campaigning throughout the week. This Fall 2017 Homecoming Week was concluded on Saturday, September 16th at the Auburn vs. Mercer Football Game, where our girl got to be presented on the field at halftime!
For her platform, Camille chose something that tied strongly to her core values and her daily life. As a Young Life leader, Camille sees the value in spending time with those in another stage of life. Similarly, she wanted to bring awareness to the Auburn Family to the importance of forging bonds between college students and residents in nursing homes. Camille’s refreshing viewpoint on something that spans so much farther than the four short years of college was deeply needed. We were so proud to be supporting Camille’s incredible vision!
greek sing 2018
We are incredibly proud to say that our chapter won the President's Award 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 2018 competition was held on Tuesday, April 10th and we were thrilled to receive the President's Award, an award that the president of each sorority voted on. With the theme of "Wizard of Oz," our Greek Sing Chairs Maggie Carter and Maggie Harris went above and beyond! Our girls worked tirelessly since January and their work made for an amazing performance!
