PAUL ALUMNAE CHAPTER Spring Newsletter Update: Foundation

This spring, the Minneapolis St. Paul Alumnae Chapter integrated foundation and philanthropy in to some of our chapter’s most fun and important events. We participated in the partnership with Tom’s and held two trunk shows. Tom’s had an opportunity for Delta Gammas across the country to participate in their “One for One” contest. Tom’s is a philanthropic and socially responsible corporation that provides a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of shoes sold. This past year, Tom’s added sunglasses to their products. In a similar philanthropic fashion, for every pair of Tom’s sunglasses sold, a pair of eyeglasses is given to a child in need. The connection between Tom’s philanthropic mission and Delta Gamma’s commitment to service for sight created a perfect match. Our chapter hosted a Tom’s trunk show at the spring Wine Tasting hosted at Toast Wine Bar. Delta Gammas enjoyed a wide selection of over 8 different Italian wines and delicious appetizers while trying on the sunglasses provided to us by Tom’s. Also, our chapter held a trunk show at Founder’s Day to give both collegians and alumnae a chance to learn about our participation in the “One for One” contest. We had a wonderful time hosting the trunk shows, trying on sunglasses, and enjoying the company of our Delta Gamma sisters.
