GP Thetas help keep CASA families warm this winter!


 At our Salad Supper event this past October, our sisters came together, as we do annually, to catch up after busy summers and enjoy each other's company over a potluck dinner. However, this year we also commemorated Theta's Day of Service by working together on a project that embodies the goals of Kappa Alpha Theta's Day of Service. Since its inception in 2009, the International Day of Service on October 19th brings Theta collegians and alumnae together in service, linked heart to heart, in honor of founder Bettie Locke Hamilton on her birthday. 

This year, our Grosse Pointe chapter went above and beyond and hand-cut and fringed 148 fleece scarves, one for each child enrolled in the Wayne County CASA
 program. All together, our small band of dedicated sisters, made over 180 scarves which were  distributed to each child at the Annual Christmas party sponsored by the UAW. Although it was a time consuming and laborious task, our chapter was able to take pride in the fact that we honored the spirit of Day of Service, while also making a differnce for local children right in our own community.

Sisterhood Spa Day Raises Funds for Wayne County CASA!

In 2014, the sisters of our chapter came together for fun, relaxation and sisterhood, all to support our local chapter of CASA in Wayne County.
Thetas in the Detroit area all braved the cold weather and polar vortex to get pampered and spend time together at this after work event.

Together we raised $200 for the Friends of Wayne County CASA to help them supplement their efforts to serve children and families in need of our help.
