Each year our sisters love to get involved with different philanthropy events supporting Autism Speaks throughout the year. We enjoy bonding with our sisters as well as the other participants and we rally around a common cause. For many of our sisters Autism understand and awareness was something that drew them to Alpha Xi Delta and for others Alpha Xi Delta drew them to it. Either way all of our sisters have a well developed passion for the vision and mission of Autism Speaks.
In the Spring we have our annual Xi Man competition. Each fraternity, sorority, and campus organization is invited to chose a man to represent them in our competition to be our Xi Man! In this competition the men compete in Formal Wear, Organization Pride Wear, Alpha Xi Delta Trivia, and Talent. This competition is filled with laughter and pride for both Alpha Xi Delta and the organizations represented.
Each year we also love to participate in the Autism Speaks Walk around Michigan. The road trips are always filled with adventure and meeting other Xisters from around the state is always exciting. But best of all it's an opportunity for us to meet families and hear personal stories about how Autism has effected different individuals and how our work to fundraise has helped them in meaningful ways.
