HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 13, 2010 – High Point University’s chapter of Kappa Delta sorority held their annual ShamROCK event Nov. 8 through 14 to support their national philanthropy, Prevent Child Abuse America.
During the week-long event, the sorority hosted a ShamROCK Shootout – which included a foul shot contest, a game of knockout, and a 3-point competition, fundraising nights at Barberitos Southwestern Grille and Feeney’s Frozen Yogurt Bar, a tailgate at the HPU intramural fields before the Big South Men’s Soccer Tournament, and a roller skate day at the Roll-A-Rink.
Through the event, Kappa Delta was able to raise more than $3,000 to donate to Piedmont Services of the Piedmont and Prevent Child Abuse America.
“Kappa Delta really cares about children, so ShamROCK and Prevent Child Abuse America are really important to us,” said Jessica Wayashe, Kappa Delta’s ShamROCK chair. “We all believe it should never hurt to be a child. The event was a huge success this year and we?re really proud that we were able to raise so much money for a great cause.”
