MURFREESBORO (September 22, 2015) – The Rutherford County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (DST) continuously looks to positively impact its local community and help create awareness to charitable causes. For four years, DST has chosen a different charitable organization to benefit from proceeds from their annual MTSU Homecoming event. This year, members of DST are coming together again to host the fourth annual Rock the RED mic event on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. to help raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Since its founding in 1913 Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has distinguished itself as a public service organization that boldly confronts the challenges of African Americans and, hence, all Americans. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. provides an extensive array of public service initiatives through its Five-Point Program Thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement. Rutherford County’s local chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. is comprised of about 100 members and is led by its chapter president, Pamela Owens.
“We spend 100% of our energy in the Rutherford County community,” Owens said. “This is a great opportunity for RCAC to give back to the community, support local talent, register voters and get the crowd excited about MTSU homecoming. I look forward to this sold out event every year.”
Previous recipients from this annual MTSU Homecoming event include Lupus Foundation in 2012, Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition in 2013; and Domestic Violence & Sexual Abuse of Murfreesboro in 2014. This year is no different. Delta Sigma Theta will continue their tradition of kicking off MTSU Homecoming events while providing monetary support, creating awareness and showcasing local talent for the benefit of another local charity.
To help support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, tickets can be purchased for $15 from any member of the Rutherford County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. or via Eventbrite.com.
