St. Jude Hospital Receives $15 Million from Delta Delta Delta

Over three years ago Delta Delta Delta began a campaign to build a new wing for St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The slogan for the fundraising was "15 in 5". It was announced today the goal has been met in 3 1/2 years! Alumnae and collegiate chapters across the country and in Canada have raised funds through all sorts of events from flipping pancakes to dodgeball competitions.

In an earlier campaign Tri Deltas earned funds to provide a teen center and assist in other services to teen patients. Another $10 million was raised to name the children's care floor.

Danny Thomas's daughter, Terre, is an initiated member of Delta Delta Delta.

Congratulations to those Tri Deltas who have worked to fight pediatric cancer!

Pahellenic sisterhood: Margaret "Marlo" Thomas, an Omicron/USC Kappa Alpha Theta, sister to Theresa "Terre" Thomas and Tony Thomas, does considerable PR work, including television advertisements, for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Love that the Thomas family continues the work which Danny Thomas passionately embraced. IF you do not know the story of St. Jude Children's, take a few minutes to read about it.

The Tri Delta chapter here at UofA puts on "D-Hop", which is a late night pancake philanthropy and it is hugely successful. It is supported not just by the Greeks on campus but by the University community.

Very proud of Tri Delta for achieving this milestone for St. Jude Children's. Football Fan, thank you for posting!

What a great accomplishment of love by Delta Delta Delta in honor of children in their most vulnerable time! It is truly astonishing how quickly you met your goal. Good work!

Thumbs up Tri Delts St. Jude support!

Way to go Tri Delts!

As the father of a sick child and a TKE alumnus (Danny Thomas is a TKE alumnus too.) St. Jude's is special to me.
Although my teenaged son is not using St. Jude's for his cancer treatment, it is so important to those that need it!

Way to go Tri Delts!
(My aunt, although passed away is a Tri Delt from Mizzou!
That makes your efforts special to me too!)
