Why? Kappa Delta Shamrock Event!

***A bit of blogkeeping: Have you entered to win 2 tickets to one of Tri-C Jazz Fest’s concerts? Check it out! Remember, you can tweet daily for additional entries.***

I’m proud to be a sorority girl (yes, even after the crazy email that went viral this week). For me, my sorority was never about snobbery or exclusion, but rather a chance to connect not only on my college campus, but across the country. When I lived in other cities, one of the first things I did was join the local Kappa Delta alumnae group and I am still friends with women I met through those groups.

Kappa Delta also has several national philanthropies that its chapters, both collegiate and alumnae, support. One of those is Prevent Child Abuse America.

PCAA

Prevent Child Abuse America was founded in 1972 and helps ensure healthy child development by providing services for victims of child abuse, as well as advocating for a national framework to help stop child abuse before it starts.

On Monday, April 22, the Cleveland West Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Delta will be holding a fundraiser to support not only the national Prevent Child Abuse America organization, but also the local Bellflower Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center, which focuses on domestic and child abuse victims.

We call this fundraiser our Shamrock Event and every Kappa Delta collegiate and alumnae chapter across the country holds a Shamrock Event to benefit both Prevent Child Abuse America and a local organization.

It’s a serious issue for which we’re raising money, but we’ll be doing it in a fun way and all are welcome! Come to Two Bucks in Avon from 6-9pm on Monday, April 22 for a wine and appetizer event. Your $25 admission at the door gets you 5 different wine tastings, as well as a tasty appetizer spread including cheese tray, crab cakes, goat cheese beef sliders, strawberry cheesecake shooters, and more. Proceeds benefit PCA and the Bellflower Center.

  1. If you had told me before I ever joined a sorority that I’d be in one, I never would’ve thought that (mostly because I never knew much about them). But I love being a “sorority girl” despite any stereotypes. It definitely was a defining moment for me in college, and an experience I am so grateful for. I can’t wait to join the Cleveland alumna chapter once I graduate 🙂

    Also that event looks really fun, I wish I could go but I unfortunately have class until 6:45 + an hour drive home from Kent 😦 I hope it gets a good turnout though!

  2. This looks like a fun event for a great cause! Two Bucks just so happens to be my go to hang out on the west side, and right around the corner from my office. May have to stop by!
