Delta Tau Delta hosted their Date-A-Delt philanthropy event on Thursday night, bringing in more than $2,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
“This event is so successful every year and it’s going to such a great cause,” member Austin Danback said.
JDRF is Delta Tau Delta’s charity that they work to raise money and awareness for. JDRF researches new therapy options for type one juvenile Diabetes, as well as supporting millions of people impacted with the disease.
The men from Delta Tau Delta volunteer to be auctioned off at the event. They strut down a runway and show off what they have to offer the lovely ladies in the audience. They then are given a question pageant-style that they answer for the crowd. The Delt leaves the room and the bidding war begins.
This year, 17 active and alumni fraternity men were auctioned off. One woman topped the bidding with a $250 bid, making her the highest bidder of the night.
Along with the auction, there were raffle tickets sold for various different items, including pieces from Kendra Scott.
Date-A-Delt has been known for being one of the most popular and successful events that Lindenwood Greek Life puts on.
“I mean, who wouldn’t want to come out and date a Delt,” Danback said. “They only thing better than being a Delt is going on a date with one.”
