Alpha Xi Delta will host spaghetti supper Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity at The University of South Dakota will hold its 18th annual spaghetti supper on March 19 at the Vermillion National Guard Armory.
Every year the women of Alpha Xi Delta hold the spaghetti supper to raise money for the South Dakota American Lung Association.
"The spaghetti supper is a wonderful way for the community to come together and make a difference in the lives of Vermillion children," said Alpha Xi Delta President Melissa Roby.
All proceeds from the supper will help pay for Vermillion children attending the asthma camp at Camp Foster in Okoboji.
Alpha Xi Delta has been affiliated with the American Lung Association for 23 years. In this time they have raised thousands of dollars and volunteered hundreds of hours of service.
"Our national philanthropy is Alpha Xi Delta Choose Children. There is always something more that we can give as a community to help those who need it," said Christine McNeary, philanthropy chair.
Alpha Xi Delta believes in the dignity of the individual child. Children deserve the opportunities to develop to their fullest potential � intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically � in an environment conductive to the development of character, personal responsibility, good citizenship, and a sense of well being.
Individually and collectively Alpha Xi Delta members and chapters support organizations that nurture the child. The asthma camp provides a safe environment for children with lung disease.
The camp staff is composed of physicians and health professionals, experienced counselors and program leaders. The medical support team includes doctors who specialize in treating asthma, plus nurses and respiratory therapists with several years experience in working with children at camp.
Tickets for the spaghetti supper will be sold at the door of the armory. Prices are $5 for adults, $4 for students at the university and $3 for children under 12.
