Anchor Splash® is our annual fall philanthropy event to raise awareness and funds for Service for Sight. The 3 day event of Anchor Splash® includes serenades, a skit/stomp, and relay water games. Fundraising happens through “Dunk a DG”, most beautiful eyes penny contest, and a BBQ. Fall 2012, Delta Omega raised $1,500 dollars for the Delta Gamma Foundation with the help of 7 fraternities and 3 sororities. Anchor Splash® is the most participated philanthropy on William Woods campus.
Our annual fundraising event, Anchor Slam®, raises money for Delta Gamma’s national philanthropy, Service for Sight. Anchor Slam® consists of a 3-on-3-basketball tournament in which members from fraternities, corps outfits, and other men’s organizations compete against each other. Women from the chapter then get to coach these teams, scheduling practices and fun get-togethers.
See-Saw for Sight®
See-Saw for Sight is a unique fundraising event that only the Delta Omega chapter holds. Each spring, we move the see-saw from our front yard to the front of the Fulton courthouse. Our chapter see-saws for 24 hours straight, raising money and awareness for Service for Sight. Last spring Delta Omega raised over $1,500.
This year's See-Saw for Sight will be held on April 21 and 22, 2016! See you there!
Giving Back Locally
In addition to raising money at Anchor Splash®, See-Saw for Sight®, and Anchor Slam®, Delta Gammas perform many other local service projects which allow us to give back to a community that is always so willing to open its arms to our sorority and college students. Each year, our members do good by sorting eyeglasses at the Lions Club which refurbishes them to individuals who might not have been able to afford glasses. It also gives us a chance to get to know our Delta Gamma sisters. We also Participate in the Box Tops and Campbell’s Soup Labels for Educations Programs. We spend a weekend every Winter at the Annual Shining Light Tree Lot and Holiday Boutique where all profits go to support the Delta Gamma Center for Children.
This year we have plans to team up with the University of Missouri - St. Louis chapter and volunteer together at the Delta Gamma Center for Children in St. Louis. This will be a wonderful opportunity for us to interact with many children who are visually impaired and their families by playing games and making crafts. It also gives us a chance to get to know Delta Gamma sisters from another chapter.
