Alpha Delta Pi’s Diamonds are Forever 2012

By: Kayla Smith

Friday, March 20th marked the kick off for Alpha Delta Pi’s Diamonds Are Forever Days. The event lasted through Sunday and served as a competition between eight fraternities on campus.

Nicola Lore, a junior in Alpha Delta Pi, is the sorority’s Philanthropy chair and put on the whole event with her co-head, Alex Coltman. According to Lore, the goal this year was to raise $1,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charity through the fraternity’s participation during different events. On Friday, members of each participating fraternity attended a fundraiser at Beach Hut Deli, which gave 20% off all profits to the Ronald McDonald Charity. Saturday afternoon was Olympic Day, which included field events and obstacle courses.

A competition to see who could collect the most poptabs was also part of the challenge, in which Pi Kappa Alpha won. On Sunday morning, the ladies of Alpha Delta Pi hosted a brunch at their house for all the fraternity men to fuel up on before the talent competition later in the day. Generous donations by Brooklyn Bagels and Safeway made the event a success as everyone dined outside in the sun.

At 2:00 pm on Sunday, the El Rey Theater drew a large crowd in support of the talent competition. Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Sigma Phi, Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, and Pi Kappa Alpha each did a four-minute dance routine or skit that was judged by a panel consisting of a member of each sorority on campus. The performances were put together by a team made up of women from Alpha Delta Pi and the fraternity members. Kappa Sigma took first place in the talent show. Overall winner gets a social with Alpha Delta Pi and a trophy. Second and third place win a spaghetti feed and an ice cream social.

Garrett Beyers, a sophomore from Kappa Sigma, performed in the winning routine and was excited about his team’s success.

“Talent show was a blast,” He said. “We practiced pretty much every day this whole week and it really paid off. I had a great time doing it.”

In the end, all the points were tallied for the weekend’s events and Pi Kappa Alpha took first place in the second annual Diamonds Are Forever Days. All of the participating fraternities did an amazing job and provided a great deal of enthusiasm and effort in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
