Girls On the Run
building strong girls
At the 2012 Gamma Phi Beta Convention, International Council announced a new non-profit partner in support of the new philanthropic focus. We raise money for the beneficiary Girls on the Run. This organization exemplifies our goal of building strong girls. We inspire young girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. This program helps girls take charge of their new lives and define the future on their terms.
Moonball is Delta Eta's largest and most exciting philanthropy of the year. Fraternity and sorority members, along with other campus organizations, are all invited to participate in a week full of fun activities. This week-long philanthropy consists of various events like Campuswide dinner hosted by the lovely ladies of Gamma Phi Beta and our own t-shirt sale, all of which lead to the main event - a volleyball tournament where fraternities battle it out and one chapter is named the winner! All of the proceeds from these events are donated to our local philanthropy as well as our national philanthropies.
Once a quarter we open our house to the entire UCI community in order to fundraise for our philanthropy. It's a chance for us to connect with friends, family, alumnae, and fellow members of Sorority and Fraternity Life. We host a dinner and share our passion for our philanthropy. All proceeds go to Girls on the Run!
