The Theta Beta chapter of Delta Gamma sorority will be making a splash for sight at its annual Anchor Splash event this Saturday, Nov. 21 from 12 to 4 p.m. in Veale Natatorium. Throughout the week, the sisters of the Delta Gamma sorority have been collecting donations in Nord Atrium with the Creative Team Photo Coin Drop. Students have been able to drop their spare change into the bucket that corresponds with the picture that they feel is the most creative.
Raffle tickets are also available for purchase from any Delta Gamma sister for 1 for $1 or 6 for $5. There are five raffle ticket prize packages consisting of everything from gift certificates to free concert tickets.
Fifteen teams representing Case Western Reserve University's fraternities and sororities will compete in a variety of events, including synchronized swimming, raft-building, frozen T-shirt relay, and biggest splash.
Admission for the event is $3 for students and $5 for general admission and donations will be accepted at the door. All proceeds will go to benefit Cleveland Sight Center and the Sorority's international philanthropy project, Service for Sight.
Last year, over 110 chapters across the United States and Canada sponsored Anchor Splash competitions last year, which resulted in the Delta Gamma foundation giving $170,000 in grants locally and nationally to those who share the Service for Sight mission.
