Zeta Tau Alpha, led by Sandra DiBitetto, has just officially shattered the record for the highest amount raised by a single team in Derby Days History! With a couple days of Derby Days XXV still upon us, ZTA has just surpassed the previous record of $42,798.
The competition is fiercely heating up and every team is doing an amazing job this year at raising money. Keep up the incredible work as the end of the 25th annual Rutgers Derby Days nears its finale!
Derby Days is an annual weeklong event held to benefit our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital (CMN Hospitals), Children's Specialized Hospital, and the wonderful philanthropies supported by the participating sororities . The largest Derby Days held in the country takes place here at Rutgers University. The event involves eight Greek organizations that compete against each other in various events throughout the week. Over the past five years we have raised over $733,000 for various charities.
The 2014 Derby Days raised over $170,000, which is an international record! This year we have set a goal of raising $200,000 and we need help from all of our friends and family to achieve this goal! Please consider making a donation to one of the participants, today.
