Sorority event raises money for blind

The Delta Gamma sorority’s annual Anchor Bowl raised $5,000 this week for Service for Sight, an organization that provides services to blind and visually impaired individuals.

Anchor Bowl consists of a week’s worth of fundraising and social events that culminate in a football tournament for fraternities. Upcoming events this week include a Baja Fresh fundraiser and the Anchor Man talent competition. The seven-on-seven fraternity football tournament will take place Saturday on the National Mall.

“(Anchor Bowl) is a great way to raise money and simultaneously spend time with the fraternities on campus,” said junior Emily O’Neill, the sorority’s president. “The event brings more unity to Delta Gamma, and I’m confident that we’ll shine again this year.”

The chapter raised about $8,800 last year through Anchor Bowl and sponsored two women in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, O’Neill said. The sorority committed to participate in the walk again this year, which will take place May 5 through 6.
