Sigma Kappa's Annual Belt Buckle Ball was a success thanks to all of the generous contributions from our families, guests, and alumnae. We really can't thank our attendees enough! Because of their attendance and participation in the Silent Auction, Kappa Eta was able to raise approximately $25,000 to be sent to the Sigma Kappa Foundation.
Sigma Kappa also participates in the annual Fort Worth Walk to End Alzheimer's. Our chapter works to raise funds and awareness to support the Alzheimer's Association in their fight against the disease; in 2019, we raised over $83,000, making Kappa Eta the top fund raising Sigma Kappa in the country. Each year at the Walk to End Alzheimer's, we see the impact this disease has had on our community and their work to help those effected.
We also partner with the Garden Terrace Alzheimer's Center of Fort Worth. During the holidays, Sigma Kappa enjoys singing Christmas carols with the residents.
In the spring, Sigma Kappa has two philanthropy events: Sigma Kappatizers and Sigma Kappa Open. For Sigma Kappatizers, the whole chapter sells tickets to our friends for all-you-can-eat appetizers at the Sigma Kappa house. It is a very fun event because we have the opportunity to interact with those on the TCU campus while raising money and awareness about the Alzheimer's Association. For Sigma Kappa Open, Greek organizations compete against each other for a donation towards their philanthropy. It is a really great event that takes place at the TCU tennis courts and allows the whole Greek community to get involved!
As always, to remember our philanthropies all you have to do is spell SIGMA.
