The partnership between Tri Delta and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was formed in 1999. Since then, the chapter has raised over $16 million for the hospital. Since raising $1 million in 2005 for the Tri Delta Teen Room at St. Jude, Tri Delta has continued to set and reach many fundraising goals for the Hospital. Four years after the birth of the Teen Room, Tri Delta raised $10 million for the Patient Care Floor in the Chili’s Care Center. Soon after, the sorority began its $15 in 5 goal – $15 million in five years – for the Specialty Clinic in the Patient Care Center.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Ranked one of the best pediatric cancer hospitals in the country, St. Jude is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children where no family pays for treatment. The daily operating cost for St. Jude is nearly $1.8 million, primarily covered by public contributions.
