Philanthropy Events

DG Delight

DG Delight is an ice cream social that the Alpha Tau Chapter holds in the fall semester. Anyone who has been to it will tell you that it is not just your average bowl of ice cream! This delicious ice cream creation is available to the Butler community for only $2 - with all proceeds going to DG's philanthropy, Service for Sight. Not only is this event tasty, but it is another great way that Alpha Taus "Do Good."  Stay updated on the DG Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out when the next DG Delight will be held! 


Anchor Splash

Anchor Splash, Alpha Tau's biggest philanthropy event, is a week-long celebration of Delta Gamma's philanthropy, Service for Sight. The week is jammed pack of various fundraising events and activities leading up to the synchronized swimming competition on the Friday of Anchor Splash week. Teams are composed of independents and fraternity members with Alpha Tau members assigned as coaches to lead each team. The synchronized swimming competition takes place at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI). Other events throughout the week include a dinner with the students from ISBVI, the Anchor Man (king) competition, DG Delight, the annual benefit dinner, "prettiest eyes" competition, and DG serenades. Anchor Splash week is a fun way to not only raise money for our philanthropy, but also to have fun with our sisters and other members of the Butler community. This week is definitely something that each DG looks forward to every year! This year the Alpha Tau chapter raised over $20,000 for Service for Sight during Anchor Splash. 



(Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired)
The Alpha Tau Chapter at Butler University is extremely fortunate to be able to work-hands on with their philanthropy through ISBVI (Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired). Volunteering at ISBVI is a great way for members to see first hand where all their philanthropic work is going. DGs go to ISBVI to do various activities with the students, including tutoring and game nights. The ISBVI students also love coming to the Alpha Tau Chapter house! The students are invited to come over to the house for a Halloween party to trick-or-treat, the Anchorsplash party to celebrate DG's philanthropy week, and the Easter Party to go on an Easter egg hunt. Alpha Taus love spending time with the students from ISBVI and gaining a better understanding of how DG's philanthropy has impacted their lives.
