Each spring Delta Phi conducts the Annual Spring Croquet Tournament to benefit Avalon, a shelter for battered women and their children. Delta Phi was the first male organization, back when the tournament was first instituted, that was allowed to be affiliated or to organize any event to benefit the shelter. Before the tournament, the sororities on campus donate money in order to form teams. All of the money raised with this event goes to the Williamsburg shelter. The fraternity has raised over $1,000 each year. With such active participation on behalf of the sororities, and an enthusiasm for our Croquet Tournament on campus, the Brothers of Omega Alpha view the philanthropic pursuits that they have undertaken as they should be: beneficial and fun.
Greetings! We are Ross Grogg and Robert Lawrence, brothers of the Delta Phi Fraternity at the College of William & Mary. For the last nineteen years, we have organized a Croquet Tournament to support Avalon, a local center for battered women and children. Delta Phi has successfully raised over $1,000 each year and with your added support through tax-deductible donations, together we can achieve the fraternity’s goal of raising over $2000 for the third straight year!
Donations in any amount would be greatly appreciated and additionally, are tax deductible with the receipt that Avalon will provide to you. Avalon is a non-profit 501(c)3 and their tax ID# is 52-1208945. If you would like to support Delta Phi’s charitable efforts, checks of any amount can be made payable to Avalon and mailed to:

Ross Grogg and Robert Lawrence
