Fourth Annual Hearts & Heels Event
April 11, 2013

 

















Wow !  What a wonderful event this year,  Thank you all for attending the 4th annual Hearts & Heels Event !  We're in the process of accounting for our silent auction and gifts to CASA.   

Denver Alumnae Chapter Pansy Fund.

The “Pansy Fund” was established with the general theme of “Thetas Helping Thetas.” Funding has come from activities such as Pansy & Pies, Pansy & Plants, set-asides from annual chapter operating surpluses, direct member gifts, and other chapter fundraising activities. Gifts focus on the general spirit and ideals of the Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity, The Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, and the Kappa Alpha Theta Friendship Fund.  Approval for Pansy Fund expenditures are made at a DAC chapter meeting in accordance with established quorum and voting requirements.

2011 – 2012 Fundraising Accomplishments

The Denver Alumnae Chapter had a very successful fundraising year. You may be wondering what we did with all that money?

$1,308.00 was collected specifically for local CASAs at our Hearts & Heels event.

$1526.34 was given to the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation towards the Denver Alumnae Chapter Educational Endowment Fund Scholarship. This scholarship, formerly known as the “Denver ETF”, has a principle balance of over $40,000.00. This is a merit-based scholarship, granted to undergraduate Thetas from the Denver Metropolitan Area. The 2012 winner, Jannah Din, received $1,600.00. 

We made two unrestricted gifts totaling $1,486.50 to the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation. Unrestricted gifts are used to support vital Foundation initiatives such individual and chapter educational programming, leadership training, general scholarships, and the Educational Leadership Consultant (ELC) program.

$535.00 was donated to assist a local collegian with financial need in paying her chapter dues.

$1,100 was spent to provide a chapter meal for 130 members of Beta Iota while their kitchen was in disrepair after the house fire.

$200.00 was given to the Denver Area Panhellenic Scholarship Fund.

And finally, thanks to the generosity of our members attending Founders Day, over $2,100.00 was collected for the Friendship Fund. The women of the Denver Alumnae Chapter are really making a difference in the lives of others.

We hope to have another good year and look forward to your participation in future fundraising activities! 

 

 Warm Hearts Warm Blankets Dillon Event 11-07-2012

SERVICE - Warm Hearts Warm Blankets 

The Denver Alumnae Chapter continued our tradition of making warm and fuzzy blankets for children in the local CASA programs.  These kids are often removed from their homes quickly and unable to take personal items. These blankets provide a sense of comfort and security for them.   Caren Stahmer, Barb Ingalls and Lindsay Denhammou all opened their homes to make these blankets in celebration of the Linked Heart to Day of service.   Taking over every space available, women got to work making blankets for the local CASA chapters. Combining the efforts of all three groups over two dozen blankets were made. The CASA chapters are very excited about the Denver Alumnae Chapter’s donation and expressed gratitude to all involved.

Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation awards merit-based scholarships for undergraduate and graduate education each school year. This year, 221 theta collegians and alumnae received scholarships totaling over $550,000.   Your annual gift to Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation helps make these programs a reality and has a powerful impact on the lives of our members.

Gathering supplies for the Warm Welcome Bags.

SERVICE 

In May 2011 we put together Warm Welcome Bags for the Newborns in Need program at Denver Health.  Supplies including booties, hats, onesies, diapers, wipes, books, and toys were provided by Denver Health and those organizations who dontate to them.  Thetas assembled more than 100 Warm Welcome Bags. 

We returned to Denver Health on May 17, 2012 for our Healthy Habits Pack Service Project.  As the safety net hospital for Denver, Denver Health provides over $455 million in free care a year. Some patients do not have access to basic toiletry items many of us take for granted. The Healthy Habit packs we put together help promote wellness and healthy hygiene for patients. Each packet contains a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, lotion, comb, and a wash cloth.  In addition to preparing these hygiene kits, we also served meals to family members of patients.  Your involvement benefits the vulnerable patient population that Denver Health serves.
