What our sisters were up to in Fall 2017
Updated: Jul 24
From philanthropy events benefiting the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, to extensive campus engagement, to sisterhood and social events...our sisters had a busy semester!
The Gamma Alpha chapter successfully raised $4,950 for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation from our annual fall philanthropy event, Mr. Milledge! The money from ticket sales will be used to support programs like Meals on Wheels and Feeding America, which contribute to our purpose of fighting hunger.
Community Involvement: Extra Special People
Multiple sisters from each pledge class are weekly volunteers at Extra Special People in Watkinsville, Georgia. ESP is an after school program for individuals with disabilities. They offer classes that are entertaining and educational for the participants. Our sisters volunteer as buddies with the participants so they have someone to spend time with and to make sure the participant gets to all the events on their schedules. Our sisters love spending their time with this organization weekly and have made lasting relationships with their "buddies."
Our PC '16 sisters got creative with their surprise themes and costumes for the big reveal! Every "Gam Fam" came out to welcome their new additions.
This year, our semiformal took place in December at LiveWire, a downtown Athens venue. A DJ and plenty of Insomnia cookies made for a super fun night.
