Spotlight on Alpha Delta Pi

Alpha Delta Pi hosted their annual philanthropy event, Are You Smarter Than A Greek? Trivia Tournament on March 21st. There was a great turnout and everyone had a blast testing their knowledge on history, pop culture, and Miami traditions! All the money raised was donated to the Ronald McDonald House, Alpha Delta Pi's International philanthropy. Members volunteer each week at the house in Cincinnati by making crafts, baking, and talking to the families who have children receiving surgery at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. A representative even came and spoke at the philanthropy event to help raise awareness!
