Beta Delta’s Spring philanthropy, Turtle Tug, took place March 22nd and gathered 68 teams from across different organizations, businesses, and the community to compete against one another over a giant pool of Jell-O. As the three brackets (co-ed, all-female, and all-male) competed in tug-of-war, sisters and onlookers cheered.
One of our most successful philanthropy events, Turtle Tug collects donations to provide support to our local and national philanthropies, including the Delta Zeta Foundation, Starkey Hearing Foundation, SC Beginnings, Brennen Elementary, Camp Wonderhands, and Northlake Sertoma Club. This year, Beta Delta raised $35,000 in support of these organizations!
We’d like to extend congratulations to each of the winning teams: Phi Mu (all-female bracket), 1,500 Pound Oreo (all-male bracket), and for the second year running – the Village Idiots (co-ed bracket)!
Sister Ellie Hanzsche, Philanthropy Co-chair, commented, “I really enjoyed organizing Turtle Tug this year because I know how much people love coming to this event and every year it becomes more and more popular. It was so rewarding to see all the teams having a blast at Turtle Tug despite the rainy weather. I also loved getting to work with my co-chair, Madison Kraft, and all the other sisters of Delta Zeta to make this event such a success. I was so humbled by the support Madison and I received from our sisters to help put this event together!”
“It was a really rewarding experience to be a Turtle Tug chair this year. I’m so thankful for all of my sisters’ help and support along the way. The enthusiasm of all of the participants really made the event all the more exciting for me. I’m so humbled by the amount of money that we were able to raise for such an amazing cause and I look forward to raising even more for our Fall philanthropy event,” said sister Madison Kraft, Philanthropy Co-Chair.
