  • Members of Kappa Delta sorority perform the opening number at ShamRock the Stage, “Run the World,” in the Roschel Performing Arts Center on Dec. 8. The students wore shirts to support one of their causes, The Confidence Coalition.

Kappa Delta Sorority will host Shamrock Bingo for the prevention of child abuse Saturday, April 18, at 1 p.m., on Hartman Green. The event will be open to all members of the College and local community and will feature a variety of prizes donated by local businesses.

Eighty percent of the proceeds from Shamrock Bingo will benefit Milagro House. The remaining funds will go to Prevent Child Abuse America, one of Kappa Delta’s four national philanthropies.

“According to Prevent Child Abuse America, three children die every day in the United States from abuse or neglect,” said Samantha LiTrenta ’11, vice president for public relations for F&M’s chapter of Kappa Delta. “Come out to Shamrock Bingo and we’ll change that.”

Kappa Delta Sorority has supported Prevent Child Abuse America for 28 years. Kappa Delta chapters throughout the nation have raised more than $6 million for the prevention of child abuse. This is the first Kappa Delta Shamrock Event at Franklin & Marshall.

“We’re very excited to introduce our Shamrock Event to the College and the Lancaster community,” LiTrenta said. “We are looking forward to sharing in its success with all who attend.”
