In addition to four or five all-chapter events each year, like the Fall Kick-Off, Founders’ Day, Pansy Dinner, etc., the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter has many other opportunities to become engaged socially, philanthropically, and by working with collegiate chapters. The descriptions below will help you better understand what is available — dues-paying members are welcome to join any activity!
See the Tri Delta Atlanta Alumnae Calendar for events & details.
Delta Day Group
This is a diverse, dynamic group of Atlanta alumnae who are available for daytime activities. Programs range from fun in-a-members-home gatherings to museum visits and tours of historical Atlanta sites and often include an opportunity to have lunch together. The group, facilitated by a leadership committee, meets monthly, August - June in months when there is no all-chapter meeting, on various days of the week. A favorite activity each year is the December/Holiday Golden Circle Luncheon and Auction. The funds raised from the auction support Care Affair, The Tri Delta Foundation, and are also used to subsidize the individual member’s cost for our monthly activities. Another annual favorite, usually ending the year, is the Tri Delta & Guest catered dinner party!
Delta Nights accommodate our Tri Deltas who work and are not free to socialize with their sisters during the daytime, although all are invited to our events. Our most popular and well-attended event is the Delta Nights Ornament Exchange each December, where sisters bring an appetizer or dessert to share, along with a wrapped, Tri Delta-inspired ornament for the "Dirty Santa" game. The evenings and locations of our social events are spread out throughout the city, and typically appetizers and beverages are included in each event.
Night Book Club
The Night Book Club meets once a month for dinner and conversation. We usually meet the 3rd week of the month on a Tuesday or Thursday evening. Each member of the group takes turns hosting us, which entails providing a light meal for 5-8 ladies and choosing a book to read & discuss. We read fiction and non-fiction. Reading the book is NOT a prerequisite for attending the meeting! We do not meet in July or December.
Day Book Clubs
The Day Book Clubs generally meet in members’ homes once a month in the afternoon, excluding July, for discussion of a fiction or non-fiction book. The hostess provides light refreshments. Membership in each group is limited to 15. We will add group(s) as needed!
St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer
The Atlanta Alumnae Chapter fields a team for this event. Join your sisters in walking or support their efforts with a donation!
Spring 2020 will mark the 37th anniversary of the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter’s largest philanthropic event, Care Affair, an auction/dinner dance that raises money for CURE Childhood Cancer and the Tri Delta Foundation. To date, we have raised over 2.4 million dollars! It takes many dedicated committee members to plan the event, secure donations, and sponsorships, help with logistics, and of course, attend! This is the perfect way to socialize with sisters while helping children with cancer and their families.
Working with Collegians
The Atlanta Alumnae Chapter actively supports the Alpha Omega Chapter at Emory University. Our collegiate/alumnae relations committee organizes baked goods and treats for exams, backroom assistance during recruitment, and joint alumnae/collegiate activities.
