Kappa Deltas Shamrock Project Meghan Miller Slide 2 Shamrock supports- Our Gamma Mu chapter of Kappa Delta hosts a flag football tournament every year in the Spring to raise money for Prevent Child Abuse America. This has been one of our sororitys biggest philanthropies since 1891. The proceeds that we receive from this event are donated to Prevent Child Abuse America and other local charities. This year we raised over $10,000 and held the tournament over a two day period.

Slide 15 What Shamrock means to me This was my first year as a Kappa Delta participating in our Shamrock Project and was overall a great experience. Even though it was two very long days, I was able to spend them with my sisters watching some really exciting games. Also, knowing that all the proceeds go to charity makes the weekend worth it!
