Pancakes for a Purpose

This past Sunday, the Delta Delta Delta sorority of Stockton University hosted their annual TriHop Pancake Breakfast. This event was held on campus at the Lakeside Lodge. The event was open for anyone to attend and was a great time to spend with family, friends, and fellow Stockton students.

Demi DeAngelis, a sister of Delta Delta Delta and their Philanthropy Chair, who organized the event, described the event in her own words: “TriHop is a fundraiser that Tri Delta hosts once a year! It’s basically a buffet-style pancake breakfast. Our sisters provide the food and they make it fresh while we’re there!”

All week prior to TriHop, the sisters of the sorority were tabling to spread the word about the event. From the money that was collected at tabling, to the money collected at the event, the event gathered a grand total of approximately $2,000. All of the proceeds go to Tri Delta’s national philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The sorority also held a raffle for the chance to win different themed baskets filled with different items. There were also fun activities that also help the philanthropy with a ‘Pie a Delta’ in the face for $1!

Demi then shared her thoughts on the event and why she personally enjoys it: “I really like this event because everyone’s families and friends come! We’re so passionate about fundraising for St. Jude, and I love that we get to show our family and friends how much it means to us and all of our accomplishments. It’s really nice spending the day with everyone, raising money for a great cause and eating lots of food!”
