6 Reasons To Support ADPi's Homers And Hogs

6 Reasons To Support ADPi's Homers And Hogs

Come out for some fun in support of a great cause!

It's that time of year again! Florida State University's Alpha Delta Pi will be hosting their annual fall philanthropy. Homers and Hogs is an annual home run derby event that brings members of other Greek organizations, campus groups, and other Tallahassee community members together in order to raise money for our charities. Last year, the event resulted in more than $15,000 to donate to Ronald McDonald House. The women of Alpha Delta Pi are overwhelmed with excitement in hopes that this year's event will be bigger than ever! There are plenty of opportunities to get involved and support:

1. You can make a team and spend your Sunday hitting baseballs.

You don't have to be a home run hitting superstar to participate! The goal is to hit as many balls as you can in a certain amount of time! After each person on your team plays, your scores are combined. The highest scoring team wins! It's that simple! It's only $75 for a team of five players and that money goes to charity.

2. It supports Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Alpha Delta Pi teamed up with Ronald McDonald House Charities in 1979, and since then, over $10 million has been donated to this cause. Just as Alpha Delta Pi serves as a home away from home for its members, RMHC does the same for families across the U.S. At RMHC, families of ill children are given housing near their hospitalized child. The money raised helps avoid the struggles of commuting to and from hospitals/appointments and keeps families together.

3. There will be a dinner at the ADPi house on October 28.

Who doesn't love barbecue? Come join us this Friday evening for live music, photo booths, games, and more. Tickets are $5 pre-sale and $7 at the door. Check here for the pre-sale.

4. It also supports Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research.

The members of Alpha Delta Pi at Florida State pride themselves on supporting not one but two charities for this event. Also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a devastatingly fatal disease that affects many people every day. ADPi donates money from the event in hopes to advance ALS research and hopefully, one day, find a cure.

5. You can support the cause without even leaving your home.

Too busy to attend the dinner or the event? That's OK because there's a website where you can donate to the cause directly! It's an easy way to donate as much money as you'd like.

6. You can buy one of our Homers and Hogs shirts.

Just like every event for Homers and Hogs, the profits from the shirts will go to both ALS research and Ronald McDonald House Charities. Last year, these unisex shirts had to be ordered multiple times due to their high demand. A pre-sale for these comfy and cute tees has begun!

For The Sorority Little About To Become A Big, It's More Than Just A Title

Being your big has been one of my favorite and happiest experiences and memories so far at college.


Little One,

Nothing could have made me happier than the day that you officially became my little, just one year ago. You have changed my life for the better in countless ways and I cannot thank you enough. Not only have you been my sister over the past year, but you have been one of my biggest supporters, a constant source of laughter and positivity, and overall, my best friend. I can only hope that I have been all of these things for you too. They say that your big is supposed to help guide you through the hectic times of college and sorority life, but often, I feel that you have done this for me. That alone is the main reason I know you will make an amazing big.

Now, it is the time for you to become someone's big, a role that I know you are more than capable of filling. Being someone's big is more than just a title. Yes, you are her big sister, but you are also her role model and hopefully her number one fan. You will be there for her during the good times and the bad times, from program acceptances and good grades to breakups and struggles. You'll send her cookies when she's had a tough day and you'll drive her to Cookout late at night to gossip and catch up over milkshakes. You'll go out with her, even to the frats you really don't like, just because it means spending more time with her. Sometimes, you'll forget you're her big, because she's your best friend.

I know the thought of becoming a big can be a little scary, but you are ready for it. You will make such an amazing difference in your little's life and her experience in ADPi and at JMU. Your g-big and I will always be here for you and your little, so please don't forget about us! We may be getting old and washed up, but we will always want a presence in your life.

There is nothing more exciting than the thought of adding a new member to our fam. If your little is anything like you, then I know these next two years will be more than memorable before I graduate. Be for her everything that I was for you, that Morgan was for me, and that Cara was for Morgan. It is remarkable how close a family of sisters of all ages can be, but we proved that last year when you joined our crazy fam.

So, it's finally time for you to pass on all the T-shirts, canvases, letters, and accessories to your little one. You're probably relieved to clear out your closet a bit, but just think about how thrilled she will be to fill her's up with everything from her baskets, even the ugly worn-out shirts. Think of how exciting this time was for you last year and enjoy every second of it. Being your big has been one of my favorite and happiest experiences and memories so far at college, and I hope that becoming a big will be the same for you. I can't wait to meet my g-lit and watch you grow into the best big this world has seen!
