Delta Zeta hosted a unique event for its philanthropy organization, the Starkey Hearing Foundation. On Feb. 21, members of Delta Zeta brought their dogs to Lindenwood for a Smooch-A-Pooch fundraising event.
“This is our second year doing it,” said Erika Hatfield, vice president of philanthropy for the organization. “We raised a lot of money and everyone responded really well [last year] so we thought we would do it again.”
Hatfield organized the event and said that the dogs belong to members of the organization. She brought her dog, Oscar, to give some kisses and play with students at the event.
“The goal of today is to have fun with pups, to educate people on our philanthropies as well as raise some money for our cause,” she said.
The dogs were outside of the Spellmann Center from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. playing with students and posing at a photo booth.
