University of Iowa | Delta Epsilon Chapter

Every chapter of Alpha Phi is united by a single goal when it comes to philanthropy. Internationally, Alpha Phi’s philanthropy focuses on women’s heart health. As the Delta Epsilon chapter of Alpha Phi, we organize various events to help raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation. The Alpha Phi Foundation divides donations into several categories including women’s heart health, scholarships and leadership programs. Our chapter holds two main events to raise money and we have a lot of fun while doing it: Red Dress Gala and Pancake Breakfast. In 2015, the Delta Epsilon chapter has expanded our philanthopic efforts by holding "Save Hearts. Eat Wings." and "Cupcakes for Cardiac Care". In the past five years the Delta Epsilon chapter has raised over $100,000 for the Alpha Phi Foundation.

The Delta Epsilon chapter’s passion for donating time to community service is incredible. Our members go above and beyond by volunteering at numerous local organizations such as hospitals, elementary schools, food pantries, senior care centers and animal shelters. We want to be sure we support those in need and give back to our community through service.

Pancake Breakfast

Pancake Breakfast is held every fall at the Alpha Phi house and brings in people from all over the Iowa City community. At pancake breakfast you will see Alpha Phi's flippin' flapjacks, serving coffee and homemade orange juice, and cheering on other Greek community members as they compete for the title of "Alpha Phi Pancake Eating Champion". The proceeds from Pancake Breakfast goes to The Alpha Phi Foundation.

Alpha Phi is currently planning Pancake Breakfast for the Fall of 2016! It will be held at our home on Sunday, October 2nd from 11am-2pm!

If you have any questions about Pancake Breakfast, contact our Pancake Breakfast Chairwoman.

Red Dress Gala

Red Dress Gala is Alpha Phi's annual silent auction philanthropy event, held during spring semester. Families, friends and alumnae are invited to enjoy an elegant evening of food, drink and fun at a formal venue. All proceeds from Red Dress Gala benefit Alpha Phi Foundation.

In 2016, the Red Dress Gala was a huge success! We held a formal dinner, silent auction, raffle, and heart health speaker. We raised almost $10,000 for the  Alpha Phi Foundation.
