College of Pharmacy’s Phi Delta Chi Raises over $1,000 for Saint Jude’s Research Hospital

Through fundraising efforts over the last few months, the members of the Beta Lambda Chapter of Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) College of Pharmacy (COP),  raised a substantial amount of money to support their organization including over $1,000 for Saint Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Ting Wong (Class of 2015) from COP’s Palm Beach campus spearheaded the efforts shortly after becoming the new fundraising chair with the close support of Beta Lambda President Sydney Kchao (Class of 2014); Vice President Priya Sahadeo (International Class of 2014); COP alumnus Katherine Nguyen (Class of 2012); and a committed team of 30-plus brothers and alumni. Hundreds of bouquets and many dozens of roses were sold to over 5,000 participants during each NSU commencement at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise.

“I am very proud that we are supporting my hometown’s prestigious hospital in the fight to ‘Finding cures. Saving children’,” Wong said. Kchao further noted that this was the most successful fundraising event in the history of the chapter.   Devri Pratt and Richard Kelch of Enrollment and Student Services at NSU expressed their satisfaction with the events and philanthropic efforts, of which the brothers were grateful for the opportunity to provide the service. The Beta Lambda faculty advisor said: “It is very gratifying for me to see the group working together and achieving such results. To see such a great outcome is absolutely phenomenal.”
