The Delta Delta Delta – or Tri Delta – Fraternity announced at their annual convention Friday that they pledge to raise $60 million over 10 years for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the single largest pledge in St. Jude history.

As a result, St. Jude will name the short-term housing facility adjacent to the hospital “Tri Delta Place.”

“Tri Delta you are amazing. Thanks so much,” wrote St. Jude CEO Richard Shadyac on his Twitter page Friday. He added that the money will help with short-term housing at the research hospital.

This new commitment follows the fulfillment of its previous pledge of $15 million in five years, which Tri Delta leaders say is a year and a half early of their goal.
