Walk to End Alz

"As 2018 marks the 34th anniversary of the partnership between the Alzheimer's Association and Sigma Kappa Sorority, we look forward to once again participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's and having another incredible year in our fundraising efforts. 2016 and 2017 were unprecedented years in Walk to End Alzheimer's fundraising for Sigma Kappa, and is a strong statement about our drive and passion to see a world without Alzheimer's."

Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research."

Each year, our chapter proudly participates in Gainesville's Walk to End Alzheimer's. In 2018, we raised nearly $16,000 through the fundraising efforts of our passionate members. Paxton Evans, a member of our chapter, individually raised over $2,000 and has spoken at various events in remembrance of her late papa, Bill Evans.

 

Sigma Shootout

Sigma Kappa's annual philanthropy, Sigma Shootout, is a 3v3 soccer tournament held every year during the Fall semester. In 2018, 24  teams competed in the soccer tournament, and all of the proceeds were donated to the Alzheimer's Association: one of the philanthropic causes Sigma Kappa supports.

During our event in the fall of 2018 we raised $15,869 through the teams registration fees and donations. We are so incredibly happy to have had such a successful turnout. 

Sigma K's Pasta Buffet

Each Spring, our chapter hosts our annual pasta buffet benefiting The Sigma Kappa Foundation. The Sigma Kappa Foundation's mission is to create and fund leadership, scholarship and philanthropic initiatives that reflect the values and spirit of Sigma Kappa Sorority. Some of our own members have been directly impacted by the Foundation through scholarships. This past Spring, Sigma Kappa raised nearly $4,000 to donate to the Sigma Kappa Foundation!  Attendees were able to enjoy all-you-can eat pasta, salad, and refreshments, and got to learn more about the impact of the Foundation.
