In case you haven’t noticed, our Qcity streets are awash in crimson and cream. That’s because the women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. are hosting their 2018 South Atlantic Regional Conference at the Charlotte Convention Center. They had a unique way to welcome visitors to the city.

More than 3,000 Deltas are expected to attend the event, which began Thursday and ends Sunday. Let’s make them feel welcome.

Here are three Delta events open to the public:

  • Step Show: Convention Center, Crown Ballroom. Always a conference favorite, this event will likely sell out. Friday, 9 p.m. Cost, $40.
  • STUFF THE BUS, School Tools kick off! The public is invited to contribute school supplies during this community service project. Donations may be dropped off at The Delta Center, 5408 Beatties Ford Road. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Ecumenical Service: Convention Center, Hall A. This spirit-filled church service will conclude the conference. Sunday, 9:30 a.m.
