Kappa Delta hosts annual Shamrock Super Bowl

-

On Saturday Feb. 8, Kappa Delta and other sororities and fraternities competed in the second annual Shamrock Super Bowl to benefit charity.

According to Kappa Delta President Erin McLeod, the event consisted of many fun and entertaining events, including a flag football tournament that involved all members of Greek Life. Other events throughout the day included a hamburger sale, a bake sale and a cookie eating contest.

The super bowl event was sponsored by many businesses. During the hamburger sale, Topher’s provided hamburgers, chips and drinks and Girl Scouts of America provided the snacks for the bake sale.
All proceeds from the event were donated to Prevent Child Abuse America. Twenty percent of the proceeds donated were given to the national foundation, and 80 percent of the money was given to the local chapter, Mississippi Children’s Justice Center.

The annual Shamrock Super Bowl began in 2013 as an attempt to reach out to other sororities and fraternities and get them more involved with each other.

“We wanted a Greek event that the chapters wouldn’t have to prepare for and would be stress free,” said Anna Claire Burns, the former vice president of community service for KD. Kappa Delta also holds a 5K run in the fall during which members from the community can participate.

The purpose of the Super Bowl event is to raise awareness of child abuse, as well as raising money for the charitable organization and having fun. Another reason for the start of the event was to support the philanthropies of other sororities and fraternities.

Delta Gamma won the overall Shamrock Super Bowl. But, during the flag football competition, Chi Omega won first place while Delta Delta Delta took second place and Delta Gamma took third place. Fraternity flag football winners included Pi Kappa Phi in first place, Pi Kappa Alpha in second place and Alpha Tau Omega in third place. Pi Beta Phi won the cookie-eating contest.
