The Iota Rho Chapter at West Chester University began a new tradition.with the Delta Zeta Diamond Ball.
A large-scale philanthropy event in the spring semester, friends and family, enjoyed laughter and dancing at the Diamond Ball.The event included a formal dinner, a performance from one of the chapter members, raffles, event t-shirts, a photo booth, senior awards and a DJ who provided the music.
"Seeing the happiness and enjoyment on people's faces told me it was a successful event," said Leah Miraglia, Philanthropy Chairman. "After all the hard work. we raised $6,300 for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. As Philanthropy Chairman, I was so proud of my chapter. All of their work and dedication showed. It is even more rewarding to me knowing that all of the money raised is going to a great cause!"
