Philanthropy

From the time of our founding, Alpha Delta Pi has believed in the importance of giving back to our community. A dedication to philanthropy guides our members to spend time in the service of those who need it most. Our international organization’s commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities has led to the donation of over $15,000,000 over the course of our partnership. More than 350 Ronald McDonald Houses in 64 countries help keep families with seriously ill or injured children together when they need it most by offering them a comfortable, temporary residence in proximity to a medical facility.

Schedule for the Weekend:

Friday October 18th- 

Take this night to enjoy time with your sisters as you all arrive in Cookeville for the weekend. We encourage you to meet up at your favorite dinner spot to have a relaxed and fun Friday night. It would be fun to get your Alpha Class together at the same spot to catch up and get the weekend started! Some great options of places to go would be Crawdaddys, Spankies, Char, Cinco Amigos, 7 Senses, and 37 Cedar but the choice is yours!

Saturday October 19th- 

We will be offering Chapter Suite and Campus tours starting at 11:00 am. Everyone can plan to meet in the Chapter Suite first, where a tour guide will be waiting to take groups when they are ready! We will have lunch and refreshments provided for you. Additionally, we will be offering Jewell Degree ceremonies before and after the tours. Times and details for those ceremonies are TBA.

Attire- We encourage you to wear comfortable clothes for the suite and campus tours, however it would be fun to wear Tech gear or a favorite ADPi piece! Comfy shoes will be a must if you want to explore campus! 

The Gala will begin at 6:00 pm at the Salt Box Inn. There will be a program for the evening upon arrival. Dinner will be provided and a cash bar with beer and wine will be available for purchase. We will have desserts, a silent auction, fun goodies, a memorial service, 10 and 25 year as well as Diamond Circle ceremonies throughout the evening. There will be a photo booth, DJ, and special surprises! It is sure to be a great evening celebrating our beloved Epsilon Psi Chapter!

Attire- There is no set attire for this event, but formal/cocktail attire would be what we suggest! It isn't about what we wear that will make the night special, so have fun with it and go as formal, elegant, or simple as you would like. For reference, most collegians will probably wear long dresses for this event. 

Sunday October 20th- 

While many of you will have to hit the road to head back to your families or get ready for work on Monday, we wanted to offer one final event for the memorable weekend. We welcome you to gather for brunch at 37 Cedar located on the West Side in Downtown Cookeville with your sisters for one last meal together. After a long night of fun, this will be a great way to end the weekend. Specific times and details will follow.

Lodging and Travel Info- The planning committee did not reserve a room block at any hotel due to the possibility of not filling one. However, we would like to share some options sisters have shared with us. 

Fairfield Inn & Suites- Sister Rebecca Pelot Cherry has reserved a room block here and the rate is $97 per night. She has reserved rooms with double queen beds for sisters to potentially share rooms if you would like! Please email the event email if you have any question about this option! 

Hampton Inn- Through the Alumnae Facebook group, we are aware of several sisters staying at the Hampton Inn. It has been renovated recently and is located on Interstate Drive, right of the interstate and less than a 10 minute drive to campus!
