“Let’s Do Lunch”
This has been an annual fundraiser since 2000.  Each year in February we coordinate a lunch and the proceeds are donated to Cunningham Children’s Home in Urbana.  We alternate the location every other year between a Champaign restaurant and hosted at Cunningham with a tour of the facility.  Lunch is donated and alumnae members are asked to bring a $25 donation to the event.  The event includes lunch, chapter business meeting and a presentation from the Cunningham staff regarding needs at Cunningham Children’s Home, as well as a recap of successes over the past year. 2023 will be casual lunch on 5/31 or 6/1 at 11:45am at El Toro across from Cunningham.

Social/Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
This event started in 2009.  We partner with Sun Singer/Alto Vineyards/Grovestone/and others to provide a wine tasting/social event.  The cost per person includes a donation towards our St. Jude Fundraising efforts.  Sometimes we also include a “consultant” party (Keep Collective, Longaberger, Stella & Dot, LuLaRoe) where all proceeds from the sales are donated to St. Jude. “Trekking with Tri Deltas” also an option.  Watch for details for summer 2023 event.

St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer
New in 2013 - our alumnae chapter formed a team to participate in the November Give Thanks Walk in Bloomington, IL to benefit St. Jude.  We continue to organize a team, but now we meet on race day in Champaign and have breakfast together and then walk at an office park. We have also added a Zumbathon fundraiser to add to our team contribution.  Our combined fundraising towards our Walk/Run Team in 2020 was $2302.99!
