Hours of work paid off last week when Spring Shamrock Week finally arrived: A full week of fun events and percent nights all for a common cause to raise money for Kappa Delta’s national philanthropy, Prevent Child Abuse America. The strenuous hours of hard work Vice President of Community Service, Julianne Domnauer, committed to in order to make this the best week possible for our chapter and our philanthropy definitely paid off!
The Confidence Coalition on Monday morning was a sweet start to the week! We handed out free coffee and doughnuts on Greene Street. That night, we hosted a percent night at Chipotle, which is always a crowd favorite. Tuesday, we roller skated the night away at Three Fountains Skating Rink in West Columbia, representing our favorite sports teams thanks to the jersey theme! Wednesday we blew up Instagram with our social media blast, which helped bring awareness to the cause. We could not go a week without taking advantage of Pelicans finally being reopened for the season, so Wednesday night we hosted a percent night at Pelicans! Warm weather calls for outdoor live music and food, so on Thursday we brought in an awesome cover band to perform at the Riverwalk Amphitheater, while we fine-dined at none other than Chick-fil-A! We put on our dancing shoes Friday night at formal to celebrate the unforgettable week, the best way to end spring Shamrock Week.
Shamrock week in both the fall and spring semesters are two weeks out of the year that all of our members look forward to because we get to bond together with a common goal. The amount of people who came and supported Kappa Delta at every event was what kept us going, knowing that every dollar raised was going toward bringing an end to child abuse, not only in South Carolina, but across the nation! Thank you to everyone outside of our chapter who supported us by donating money and coming to our events, your time and money goes farther than you know!
