-A games night- pull out your favourite board games and invite some sisters over.

-A book club- whether it’s classics, romance, non-fiction or fiction you’ll love hearing your friend’s take on what you’ve just read.

-A movie night- Hollywood blockbuster or art film everyone enjoys a night at the movies

-A running club- Get fit with your sisters.

-A monthly dinner- just like back it chapter host sisters at your house or explore a new restaurant each month.

-A clothing swap, pick a theme:  children’s clothing, business attire, accessories! This one is also a great opportunity to invite your friends to meet your Tri Delta sisters.  You may even want to make this a mini philanthropy event asking each attendee to donate $5 to POGO.

-A night at the theatre, Shakespeare or musical discover your favourite production

-A Spa day- we all need a little pampering now and then.

Remember ladies you don’t have to restrict these events to alumni invite your friends so they can she why you have a house full of pansies!

We’d love to hear from you, send us your own suggestions for mini socials and testimonials on your successful socials. Contact social@torontotridelta.ca with any quesitons or if you’d like your social to be advertised on the alumnae website

“Helping Hands: Manicures and Mimosas for St. Jude”

Saturday, March 31, 2012

12-2 p.m.

March is Tri Delta’s St. Jude month. Since 1999, Tri Deltas across the continent have dedicated themselves to giving hope to St. Jude families. In July 2010, Tri Delta announced it would take on a new, more aggressive challenge – to raise $15 million in 5 years to name The Specialty Clinic located in the Patient Care Center at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“Helping Hands: Manicures and Mimosas for St. Jude” is open to members of the Toronto Alumnae Chapter who are in good standing. Details have been emailed to the membership. If you did not receive your email, please get in touch with our president via the CONTACT tab on this website. Thank you for supporting Delta Delta Delta Women’s Fraternity and your local chapter.
