Beta Tau Loves St. Jude
At Beta Tau, St. Jude is the foundation and heartbeat of this chapter. We could not be more proud to partner with St. Jude and play a role in helping end child cancer. Our work is not done until no child dies in the dawn of life. We are committed more than ever to see an end of childhood cancer.
In 2019, we set a goal for $200,000 to fundraise for St. Jude. We are so proud to report that we exceeded that goal, raising a total of $279,345 for the children of St. Jude!! We were the highest fundraising chapter in the country for the second year in a row. Last year, we broke the record for highest collegiate donation with a 2018 fundraising total of $270,000. However in 2019, we broke our own record to be the highest collegiate donation once again!
Each year, we host three philanthropy events to raise money for St. Jude. This fall we are excited to put on Tri Delta Game Day, a watch party and tailgate for a Baylor away football game. In the spring we host Delta Night Live, featuring a concert and food trucks at Common Grounds. In 2019, we hosted the Band Camino with a sold out show of over 800 people. Our biggest fundraiser is SincerelyYours, the letter-writing campaign we hold each spring. As a chapter we come together to send letters to friends and family explaining our passion for St. Jude and asking for donations and prayers. It's a fun time to spend together as sisters united for our favorite cause.
Each fall we have the chance to travel to Memphis, Tennessee to tour St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It's always an incredible way to bond and get to see the place we work so hard to support. The tour makes the cause of St. Jude come alive to our members and pushes us to work harder than ever for the children of St. Jude!
