Sigma Kappa Beta Upsilon participate in many philanthropic events throughout the year. Not only does Sigma Kappa host events for their own philanthropies but they also attend the events for other sororities on campus to support the entire greek community.
Annually, Sigma Kappa participates in the Walk to End Alzheimer's. This year we raised nearly $10,000.00 for the Walk to End Alzheimer's and humbly accepted the award for the Top Fundraising Team! We are passionate about this cause with hopes of one day living in a world without this terrible disease.
Along with the Walk, Sigma Kappa also has started Kappa Koneys. This event was created last year and we are so amazed with the support we received. We had people come through the house with advertising on our porch. The hot dogs were a hit and people were pleased with how the event went. Raising $1,000 last spring, we are excited to continue this philanthropy and only make it more successful as last year.
The Purple Gala is another one of our philanthropy events. This is a very special night where we have the privilege to hear from speakers who have been affected by Alzheimer's Disease while mingling with sisters and guest. The night is filled with heart, fun and dancing. This night's goal is to not only raise funds for Alzheimer's Disease Research but to also raise awareness.
