EAU CLAIRE — Delta Tau Delta, the newest fraternity on the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire campus, has identified Bolton Refuge House as the philanthropy the organization will support. Its inaugural activity is to promote and attend an April 26 tailgate party that observes National Crime Victims' Rights Week, April 22-28, which promotes victims' rights and honors those who advocate on their behalf. The event will run from 3-7 p.m. at Bolton Refuge House, 807 S. Farwell Street, near downtown Eau Claire. The program features free food, music, children's activities, drawings and a silent auction for a moped.
Bolton Refuge House provides a variety of services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Its mission is to offer safety, support, education and other services, as well as skills or alternatives to empower victims and enhance the safety and well-being of survivors by specifically addressing their needs on an individual and community basis.
UW-Eau Claire's Delta Tau Delta chapter was formed in October 2011.
"We are a group that is looking to develop a positive men's presence on campus in order to set an example of excellence and humility among men at the university," said Delta Tau Delta member Brandon Magliocco, Brookfield.
Delta Tau Delta was founded in 1858 at Bethany College in present-day West Virginia. "Committed to Lives of Excellence," the organization comprises approximately 7,500 undergraduate members on nearly 200 campuses.
