On March 25, Delta Gamma hosted their annual philanthropy event, Anchor Splash. The week prior to Anchor Splash had different themed days that Greek houses participated in to earn points. From singing serenades to a penny war, the anticipation heightened every day leading up to the main event.
Each fraternity and sorority are given two weeks and coaches from Delta Gamma to learn, practice and ultimately perform their routine in the Dow swimming pool. This year’s theme was Super Bowl halftime performers. Given just over five minutes to perform, each house gave its all with the final winners being fraternity Delta Tau Delta and sorority Alpha Xi Delta.
Anchor Splash ended with the hosts taking their turn at performing and showing the audience their excitement for Service for Sight, a Delta Gamma-affiliated philanthropic organization that specializes in advocacy for blind and visually impaired people. Delta Gamma’s Sage Gettings, a junior from Holland, spoke about their philanthropy.
“Service for Sight is our philanthropy that has helped fund five schools across the country for the visually impaired,” Gettings said. “We get to help children, members of the military and the elderly, so it was great to see everyone come out and support something so close to our hearts.”
