With all the profit shares complete, that brings us to Kappa Delta's major event - Spaghetti Dinner! For the past 14 years, Eta Alpha has thrown the huge event, raising more and more money for their philanthropies. It might be called spaghetti dinner, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Over 2,000 people attended this event, and that fact alone was enough to blow us away. It is SO inspiring to hear about college kids and their local community coming together to support KD.
So what was on the agenda? First - food! There was spaghetti (obviously,) as well as breadsticks, salad, and cookies. Insomniacookies donated 1500 cookies for the event (an impressive amount) but the chapter quickly ran out with how many people came that night. No worries, though, always have back up cookies on hand!
Besides the delicious food, Kappa Delta also had two bands perform outside, keeping the vibes perfect while people hung out and ate. They needed it too - with people spilling out onto the parking lot and their hill at the back of the house. That's how many people attended this thing! Insane!! Yara said it was a blast, though, with peoples' families and friends coming in for the night. There was a line out the door all night, the sign of success for any event.
To raise even MORE money, the chapter also held a live raffle at the end of the night, composed of three different categories. They put up a silent auction online that ended that night as well, which alone raised around $3,500. These girls are bringing in BANKfor their philanthropies, needless to say.
