Phi Delt Phillies

            A campus event I recently attended on Thursday April 13, 2017 was the Phi Delt Phillies. It was a fraternity philanthropy that was benefiting profits for the ALS, as known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a very rare muscle weakness disease that can be treated, but there is still no cure for. An age to start being affected is early as 6 years old, but it is more common in later years in the 50s and 60s. All of the proceeds go to the organization that helps find a cure for ALS. Each ticket was $5 in advance from a Phi Delt member or $6 at the door. There were flyers all over campus for this event and every Phi Delt member had to advertise it and sale at least 5 tickets. Phi Delt members went to each chapter house on city campus to advertise this event and get the word out about it. They would give out free tickets to some houses if they could guess the name of someone or if they remember what day it was on, just to see who was and wasn’t paying attention. The Phi Delt members provided services for the paying consumers working in an assembly line to make everyone an individual Philly cheesesteak sandwich. The event was held in the basement and their house chef made the food provided. It was a successful event that raised a lot of money for the ALS association.
