B.G. Brackman of the Delta Kappa chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha writes:
“Delta Kappa hosted its third annual Daylight Savings Bingo event recently at Best Western Hood River Inn. The affair drew 117 guests and garnered $2,900 toward the chapter’s annual community outreach activities and national charitable projects.
“The chapter’s 48 years serving the community as a philanthropic nonprofit organization has included partnering with families, volunteers and neighborhood businesses giving their time and donations. The group’s collective efforts continue to foster hopes and dreams for others in need (epsilonsigmaalpha.org).
“Delta Kappa chapter yearly events, along with community partners’ donations, have strengthened the outreach endeavors at both local community and national level.
