University of North Alabama ADPi hosts successful Night for Ronald

Members of the ADPi Zeta Eta Chapter greet guests.

The Zeta Eta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi hosted a wonderful “Night for Ronald” event benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama (RMHCA) on April 21.

Held at the Tuscumbia Depot and Roundhouse, attendees enjoyed live music from The Cole Nichols Band, a silent auction and a delicious dinner catered by Southern Skillet Catering.

RMHCA is grateful to Zeta Eta and the 200 people who made the event a success! According to Zeta Eta Philanthrophy Chair Georgia Claire Varble, more than $3,000 was raised to benefit RMHCA and the mission of keeping families together when a child is sick or injured and needs the support of their family.

Local businesses and chapter members donated items for the silent auction and the most sought-after item was a $200 gift card to a Shoals-area boutique called Markethouse.

“This is the first event our chapter has done like this in many. many years, so everyone is so excited that it went so well and hope to make it an annual event,” Varble said. “Future Ronald McDonald House fundraisers we will be having this fall include “Run for Ronald” on October 27th.”
