When: Saturday, March 29th 10:30 AM
Where: Field House Pool
What: Philanthropy Event
Each spring we hold our annual philanthropy event, Anchor Splash® to raise money for Delta Gamma's national foundation Service for Sight. Events include relay races, the Mr. Anchor Splash contest, and synchronized swimming. Teams of 5 sign up from different chapters in the entire Fraternity and Sorority community. Each team is assigned a pair of DG "coaches" who get the teams excited for the big event! The two winning fraternities and one winning sorority are then invited to our annual Anchor Bash!
Through Anchor Splash® 2008 Delta Gamma rose over $5,000 for Service for Sight and donated $3,000 to the University of Iowa Hospital Ophthalmology Department to buy them a new refractometer which had been on their wish list! A special thanks goes out to all those who helped make Anchor Splash® 2008 such a success!
Request from the Girls: It is our goal this year to really expand Anchor Splash, and we want to encourage non-Greek organizations to get involved and participate in Anchor Splash. Do you think any parents or DG Alumni would be interested in making a team to compete in Anchor Splash? It could be very fun! Even if parents don't want to compete, it would still be fun if they came to the event and watched. I wanted to run this by you and see what you thought.
