Our chapter here at Texas Tech is very excited to announce that we will officially be hosting our first annual fall event! Come join us on Monday, November 6th, 2017 for some Tom & Bingo’s BBQ and Kona Ice! Swing by our lodge on Greek Circle between 6:30-9:30pm to enjoy a delicious BBQ sandwich and snow cone all while hanging out with with your favorite Alpha Xi Delta’s and spreading Autism awareness. All proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks and their efforts toward assisting those affected by Autism. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased from a sister before the event as well as at the door the night of. Purchase of a ticket includes a sandwich, chips, and drink. Snow cones are separate. We would love to see you there!
Our annual spring event is also something to keep in mind, The AmaXIng Challenge is Alpha Xi Delta’s national event aimed at raising funds and awareness for Autism Speaks, an organization Alpha Xi Delta publicly sponsors. Each chapter throughout the nation chooses a specific theme for their AmaXIng Challenge. Our chapter hosts a Karaoke for a Cause event every year during the month of April. This means people in the Texas Tech and Lubbock community come together as teams and compete with one another through karaoke! Prizes will be given out for superlatives such as “most fun performance” and “most passion.” Food will be available for purchase. All the money raised through the food sales and entry tickets will go to Autism Speaks. Ticket sales will begin in March leading up to the event so check back soon. It’ll be tons of fun and laughter. We invite you to bring a friend or two with you as well!
Other philanthropy events our chapter encourages everyone to attend are giveback nights at local restaurants like One Guy’s, Chipotle, and Raising Canes in Lubbock. All you need to do to participate is tell the host at the restaurant that you are there for the giveback with Alpha Xi Delta and a percentage of your receipt will go to Autism Speak!
