Our chapter throws Sigma Kappatizers every Winter term. The event has various appetizers, from mac and cheese to taquitos and even tater tots. Kappatizers also features a photo booth, house tours and games.
The event brings awareness to two of our five philanthropies: the Sigma Kappa Foundation and the Maine Seacoast Mission. The proceeds from the event go to the Sigma Kappa Foundation while donations for some of the most needed items for areas that freeze over in the Maine winter are also collected.
At our 2018 Kappatizers we raised $5,300 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation. This year we doubled our fundraising goal and raised $7,452!

Are You Smarter Than a College Student:
Join us on May 11th from 1-3 pm in Straub 156 for our new Spring Philanthropy event! The philanthropy is a gameshow inspired event where teams of students compete against teams of professors in a Family Feud style competition. The gameshow features questions about Academic Knowledge, UO History, Pop Culture, and Sports. Audience members also have the chance to win prizes in mini-games.
Walk to End Alzheimers:
Fall term our sorority participates in the local Walk to End Alzheimers to show our support for our main philanthropy. On top of participating in the walk, many of our chapter members also volunteered to help run stations at the event. We were one of the top fundraisers for the 2018 walk in Eugene and look forward to raising more money, and awareness, for the cause this year.
To help our chapter reach our $6,000 donation goal for the 2019 walk go to http://act.alz.org/site/TR?team_id=550694&fr_id=12706&pg=team
Fall term we introduced Grateful Grams where people could buy notes to tell someone how grateful they were for them around Thanksgiving. We raised approximately $1,500 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation, which helps sisters in need across the country.
Other Service Activities:
Each member of our chapter contributes 9 service hours in the community each semester. We also participate in Day of Service, a day dedicated to helping the community through various service activities on or around campus. For this year's Day of Service we made cards for first responders, a local hospital and a senior rehabilitation center as well as participating in community cleanups. Furthermore, our chapter participates in Week of Giving. Week of Giving is a week during Fall term dedicated to acknowledging those in our community for their help and service. This year during Week of Giving thank you gifts are given to teachers and cookies were baked by sorority members and delivered to police and firemen.
Our chapter is also proud to support other chapter philanthropies by attending, and participating, in food, dance, and activity philanthropic events in the Greek Community. Last year, our chapter attended all but two sorority and fraternity philanthropic events, with the two we were unable to attend falling during our own philanthropy event and our sisterhood retreat.
