Saturday April 9th, 2011 the Chi Eta Chapter hosted its first spring philanthropy event. The inaugural Bowling Green Spring Luau was held to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky. The event took place at Bruster’s Real Ice Cream on Scottsville Road. The carnival themed luau had much to offer from games like the balloon pop, beanbag toss, duck-o-war, and pie a Fiji to food, face painting, arts and crafts, and inflatable bouncy houses. The fun and games lasted until 7pm, and ended with a concert by local talented Fijis Dallas Wilson, Jordan Minton, and Ben Hussung among others. The sunset and concert was a relaxing finish to a hot, busy, and successful day. With sponsorships from Kohl’s, UPS and Bruster’s the chapter was able to donate over $2,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The men of Phi Gamma Delta will be hosting the Inaugural Bowling Green Spring Luau benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky.

The Delta pledge class held the ever first Date a Delta event Wednesday April 14, 2010 in the Mass Media Auditorium. The philanthropic event raised funds to go towards Fiji’s Across America, which is benefiting Alzheimer’s research. After a couple rounds of questions and talent show, the girls began bidding for a one-on-one date with the guys. Three of the brothers riding across country made a surprise appearance and were auctioned off for dates as well. The event concluded with over $500 raised for Alzheimer’s research. We hope to make this an annual event.
