WKU’s chapter of Kappa Delta Sorority presented a check for $13,200 to the Family Enrichment Center of Bowling Green on Tuesday afternoon.
The proceeds were gathered at the sorority’s ninth annual Shamrock Shootout, a five-on-five basketball tournament held March 26-27.
This year’s event raised more than $16,000 to be divided between the Family Enrichment Center and Prevent Child Abuse America. Eighty percent of the proceeds will stay in Bowling Green and the remaining 20 percent will go to the national organization of Prevent Child Abuse America.
Nearly 60 teams participated in the event, allowing for a grand total of $13,200 to be donated to the Family Enrichment Center, a 250 percent increase from last year’s donation. The check presentation was held May 10 at Wee Care on Broadway Avenue.
“As a committee chair for four years, its encouraging to see the tournament progressively grow,” said senior Brooke Crigger. “With more and more people willing to get involved, Kappa Delta can truly help to make a difference in the lives of the children here in Bowling Green and in America.”
