WHAT WE DO
Alpha Delta Pi collegians and alumnae, as well as friends and family members of Alpha Delta Pi, show their philanthropic spirit in many ways. Here at the Iota Chapter, we are dedicated to contributing to Ronald McDonald House Charities, the ALS Association, as well as various other deserving organizations.
OUR PHILANTHROPIC EVENTS
Each fall, our sisters look forward to hosting our annual Homers and Hogs – a home run derby open to all campus organizations and members of the community. Paired with our Diamond Man competition, various Greek organizations, campus groups, and members of the Tallahassee community join our chapter for food, games, music, and fun for an amazing cause.
We host our annual philanthropy ADPi-Athlon every spring. Participants compete in a series of pie-related relay challenges. With pie eating contests, obstacle courses, and pie tosses, the event brings together over 30 campus organizations to raise money for our charities.
Our year-round philanthropic efforts are demonstrated through not only our events, but our week-long campaigns leading up to our philanthropies. The days leading up to Homers and Hogs and ADPi-Athlon consist of dinner and live music at our house, shirt sales, and partial proceeds dinners at local restaurants.
The women of our chapter are also very active volunteers in the Tallahassee community. Together, members of our chapter participated in thousands of community service hours over the years. Every year, a large group of our members participate and lead in FSU's Dance Marathon, the second largest student-run philanthropy in the southeast. During this event, our members pledge to stand for 20 hours, and raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. In addition to Dance Marathon, our sisters volunteer, and often lead philanthropic efforts for Light The Night, Relay For Life, MedLife, The Big Event, and Power of WE to name a few.
IN THE COMMUNITY
On October 28th 2012, Alpha Delta Pi dedicated a new meditation pavilion to Florida State University as part of an ongoing campus beautification program. The pavilion is located in the Greek Park between Landis Hall and Jefferson Street. The Meditation Pavilion features Gothic architecture, stained glass, a bronze clock, and a center meditation of terrazzo and brass. Florida State University's Master Craftsman Program customized the pavilion for Alpha Delta Pi. Our alumnae contributed to the development of the pavilion through their purchases of stained glass windows, stone benches, and other design elements. We are so proud to have such a lasting symbol of our sisterhood as part of the Florida State campus.
