About Delta Phi Epsilon and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
In 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was founded by a small group of parents of CF patients who wanted to advance understanding of this little known disease, to create new treatments and specialized care for their children, and to find a cure. One of those founding parents was Phyllis Kossoff, a Delta Phi Epsilon sister, from the Delta Chapter at Hunter College in New York. Phyllis’ daughter Stephanie had CF, which eventually took her young life. In 1957, Phyllis stood before a Delta Phi Epsilon convention and told her sisters about Stephanie, and the growing CF Foundation family, and asked for help. The response was overwhelming. Delta Phi Epsilon has continued to support the Foundation through fundraising, increasing awareness and advocating for those with CF. Our partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has spanned decades, and we have raised over $1 million to support the cause. Join us as we strive to help everyone living with CF to Add Tomorrow and Live Today.
Come join the members of Delta Phi Epsilon for a night of entertainment as we raise money to contribute to the fight cystic fibrosis!
Our 12th annual Deepher Dude event will be held on Saturday, February 6th, 2016 in Drexel's Main Auditorium. The main goal of this male beauty pageant event is to raise money to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
