Phi Delta Theta Chilli Cook Off
Our fall philanthropy, Chili Cook-off, is a concert and chili cook off between soroities that benefits an organization of our choosing that we believe will benefit society. Last years event benefitted the Ben Schmidt Foundation, an organization honoring a fallen Phi in Afghanistan, Marine Lance Corporal Benjamin Schmidt. The foundation provides a scholarship in Ben's honor to someone who has a minimum GPA of 3.0, involved in community service, and is pursuing a degree in history.
Phi Delta Theta Phifa World Cup
Our spring philanthropy, Phifa World Cup, is a soccer tournament that benefits an organization of our choosing. This will be the first annual holding of this event, and it will be a very special one to have. The organization we are donating towards is called DADDs, Dads Against Deadly Drugs. The organization is currently in the process of being created by Tom Pickens, father to one of our deceased members Ty Pickens. The organization is focused towards providing information on the dangers of drugs, and to start a push in making those who are accesories to a death or crime created by the use of drugs punishable. It is a stance currently being taken by MADD.
