Last summer we were at a summer camp that we go to with our family known as "Bruinwoods" and several of the Counselors suggested that we get involved with the UCLA Tri-Delta's fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Hospital. How could we resist....a great cause, a great school, great, great, great.....wait it goes from 9 PM to 2:30 AM!!! Did we read that right?? Oh, and there is no alcohol being served - How could this event be popular? Well it was...close to 2,000 people attended and approximately $15,000 was raised for St. Jude Children's Hospital...nearly double what was raised in 2008!
Daddy Cakes® loves to work with organizations like this - 100% of all of the proceeds collected went to St. Jude Children's Hospital.....and let me tell you, every one of the 120 members of the Theta Pi Chapter of Delta Delta Delta deserves major recognition for all of their efforts and hard work. They did a GREAT job!
Other than explaining to our wives that we were heading out for a night with a Sorority House...it was completely normal. After we helped get the event kicked off, we headed into Westwood to watch StarTrek until 1:20 AM, when we arrived back, the event was still going strong. The line was non-stop until 2:40 AM!!
BTW - the new Star Trek Movie is pretty awesome. I won't let my kids see it until they are at least 13 because I think the monster scene might give them some unfriendly dreams:-( but for teens and adults it was a lot of fun.
