ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The extremely viral Ice Bucket Challenge has found its way to Delta Sigma Pi. Benefiting the ALS Association by raising awareness and money, millions of people (including brothers in Delta Sigma Pi) have been recording themselves dumping ice water on their heads.

According to their website, “As of Wednesday, August 27, The ALS Association has received $94.3 million in donations compared to $2.7 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 27). These donations have come from existing donors and 2.1 million new donors. The ALS Association is tremendously thankful for all of the generous support and awareness that this summer phenomenon has generated for the cause.”

Thursday 8/21 TCAC participated in the challenge and nominated several other alumni chapters, including Des Moines – Central Iowa.

Awesome Aug. Happy Hour

It’s getting to be that time of year when students head back to the classroom and summer comes towards an end. But the Delta Sigma Pi year just begins to heat up. On campus, recruitment, chapter meetings, and back to school socials will kick off the year. For the Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter, an August happy hour was called for.


7 brothers stopped by The Waverly (formerly Flanagan’s) on Ingersoll in Des Moines near downtown on Tuesday August 19. There was exciting conversation and much humorous commentary.

Thank you, Adam Carroll for giving away free Kindle versions of your book, “Winning the Money Game” at the end of last month. At least one member of the Des Moines alumni chapter downloaded a copy, read it, and enjoyed it.

Des Moines has claimed another award!
Forbes has once again placed Des Moines as the #1 place for young professionals. Des Moines previously claimed the top spot for this award in 2011.
