Here at Alpha Xi Delta, one of our values is Service. Alpha Xi Delta is a proud National Sponsor of the Autism Speaks Walk!
Every April, the Delta Rho chapter participates in the Los Angeles Autism Speaks Walk held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Throughout the year, our Philanthropy Vice President and her team organize events and fundraisers where every sister has the opportunity to raise money. Our main event every fall semester is Football Frenxi, a flag football tournament where participating fraternities compete against each other. Our spring semester event, Xi Champs, is a three-day event consisting of a relay race, fundraiser at a local eatery, Light It Up Blue video contest, and our closing ceremony is a dance competition! This past year we had fundraisers at Presto Pasta, Ubatuba Acai, and Bon Bon Tea House. The Philanthropy team also organized a Pie-in-the-Face event and Instagram bingo fundraiser. Due to COVID-19, we fell short of our chapter goal but we still raised an amazing $16,000 for Autism Speaks. You can help support our philanthropy by donating to any of our sisters on our chapter Walk Page. Any donation - big or small - is appreciated!
The sisters of the Delta Rho chapter not only strive to raise money and awareness for Autism Speaks, but we participate in other fraternity and sorority philanthropies as well. This past fall, our sisters won six fraternity philanthropies by raising the most money in shirt sales, participating in different events, and helping spread awareness for their causes.
