The Delta Zeta sorority at UTC will host a special BBQ tailgate on Saturday, Oct. 26, to benefit local non-profit, The Speech and Hearing Center. Tickets for the tailgate are $10 for adults and $8 for children, and will include food, drinks and fun before the Mocs take on Citadel.
In 1954, Delta Zeta’s Convention body voted to make the cause of speech and hearing its national philanthropy. Today, the sorority volunteers many hours for speech and hearing organizations in their communities, and Delta Zeta at UTC is dedicated to continuing the tradition decades later.
“Our national philanthropy is speech and hearing, so when we heard about The Speech and Hearing Center here in Chattanooga, we knew we wanted to start a friendship.” said Michelle Brooks, president of Delta Zeta at UTC. “We are very excited for the opportunity to invite the community to this special tailgate, while fundraising for a cause that our members are truly passionate about.”
“We are honored that the ladies of Delta Zeta have chosen to support our organization,” said Connie Fernandez, president and CEO of The Speech and Hearing Center. “The tailgate will be a great way for our community, along with students and families from UTC, to come together and have fun while learning more about our mission.”
The BBQ Tailgate benefiting The Speech and Hearing Center will be at the First Tennessee Pavilion on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 11 a.m. before the Mocs take on Citadel. Tickets are available for pre-sale at The Speech and Hearing Center, or by contacting Michelle Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Walk-up tickets will also be available for purchase on day of event.
