Delta Zeta Colonial Auction

ALAN BUEHLER, Contributer

The sisters of Delta Zeta sorority are hosting their second annual Colonial Auction this semester.

The event, which allows faculty and students auction off a service to raise money for charity, will be held in Massey Hall on April 4, 2012 at 9 p.m.

During the event, the sisters will auction off a service that has been donated by a student or faculty member. Services from prior Colonial Auctions include 3 free Sheetz runs, guitar lessons, a coupon to clean a dorm room and even lunch at the Dusquesne Club for four with President Del’Omo.

The 2011 Colonial Auction raised over $1200; all of the proceeds benefitted the charity Variety Children’s Charity Pittsburgh. Variety is a non-profit organization that aids children in the Pittsburgh area with physical and mental disabilities.

“We’re trying to raise money to provide wheelchairs and learning devices to special needs children in the local Pittsburgh area through Variety Children’s Charity,” said Jessica Gierczynski, sister of Delta Zeta.

All students and faculty are encouraged to contribute to Variety Children’s Charity and the Colonial Auction by auctioning off their own unique talent or service. If interested in contributing to the Colonial Auction and giving back to the RMU community, contact Jessica Duffy at [email protected], Natalie Debarto at [email protected] or any sister of Delta Zeta. There is no fee to donate a talent or attend the event.

Jessica Duffey, sister of Delta Zeta said, “It’s good for students and organizations on campus to help contribute to the Colonial Auction because it’s a local philanthropy which supports the children of Pittsburgh. It’s also a good way for organizations to give back to RMU and get their names out to other students on campus.”
