Bite of Athens
Every spring, Delta Zeta hosted our philanthropy event, A Bite of Athens, to benefit our national service project, the Painted Turtle Camp. The Painted Turtle Camp is a camp in California that allows children with serious medical conditions to enjoy traditional summer camp in a safe environment surrounded by knowledgeable directors and children with similar conditions. It is truly an amazing camp that is benefitted by the continued support of Delta Zeta, and we are proud to continue to raise money and send counselors to the camp annually. This summer 2018, we are proud to say we will be sending 5 Zeta Pi sisters to California to serve as counselors for the Painted Turtle Camp!
Our first annual Bite of Athens on April 7, 2015, was a great success! We hosted over 15 local Athens restaurants, including the Branded Butcher, Brett's All American, and Menchie's, as well as several boutiques from around Georgia including, Grain & Grit, Southern Tide, and stella + dot. We are extremely proud of the turnout (over 1,000 UGA students attended!) and the amount of money we were able to raise for the Painted Turtle Camp! Everyone who attended had a blast thanks to the live entertainment and sheer volume of vendors! We are so thankful for the support of the local Athens community in the success of this event and look forward to continuing to give back to Athens and the Painted Turtle Camp through this event next year!
