Chapter Philanthropy & Service
In addition to national partners, collegiate chapters also support local causes through philanthropic fundraising and hands-on service on their campuses and in their local communities.
In 2017, our sorority decided to partner with Dress for Success in Fort Wayne, Indiana. We hope to visit sometime soon in the upcoming semester.
Our second local philanthropy is Riley Children's Hospital located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Riley's specializes in pediatric research.
For the 2017-2018 school year we have plans to hold an American Ninja Warrior Event in Auburn, IN thanks to our philanthropy chair Caroline Hipskind. The event is set to occur on October 15, 2017. Contact us for details on how you can participate and help out.
We also plan to host a 5k at our indoor Athletic Recreation Center for Gigi's Playhouse, which supports the needs of those with Down's Syndrome. The 5k Walk and Run will take place on Saturday, December 9, 2017.
In the past we annually we hosted Strikes for Riley's bowling tournament at Angola Bowl.
In 2016, our sisters raised a total of $1,924.46 from our philanthropy event and canning at Walmart for Riley's. Half of the money was donated to the hospital, while the other half was used to buy toys, fabric to make blankets, and gift cards.
