Starting on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 8:30 p.m. with a pancake feed, the Delta Gamma Foundation will begin philanthropy week at the Delta Gamma house. Entrance tickets will cost only $5 for all-you-can eat pancakes, milk, bananas and bacon. All of the members will help to cook and prepare beforehand.

Historically developed throughout the years since 1936, the Delta Gamma Foundation has been raising money to help fund state schools for the blind, eye saving research and treatment and assistance for the visually impaired.

“We’ve just got all of our new members with whom we are excited to share everything that our philanthropy is and teach them about what we do,” said Cassandra White, vice president of foundation.

They have a good plan of accomplishing it by taking recently recruited girls to the Kansas State School for the Blind and help the students with their track meet before the pancake feed on Sept. 14.

On Monday, Sept. 16, at Cold Stone Creamery, Delta Gamma will hold another event between 6-9 p.m. with 25 percent of the proceeds going to the foundation.

The last event, but not the least, “Pie-a-DG”, will be held on Sept. 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., during which, everyone will get a chance to smash the members of Delta Gamma’s faces with whipped cream pies for 50 cents.

For people interested in helping through a participation in any of the events, Delta Gamma will spread out flyers and will post detailed information on their Facebook and Twitter accounts. Also, Delta Gamma will be tabling in the Union, from Sept. 11 to Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“There is no easier way to Do Good,” said White.
