It's that time of year! Kappa Alpha Theta with help from our friends Lambda Chi Alpha are hosting our annual flag-football tournament AND pancake breakfast to fundraise for ABC Head Start!
How much? Pancake breakfast is $5, but teams eat free!
What else is there??
Expect a performance from the U of A Dance Team, a silent auction with awesome prizes, a 50/50 raffle (bring your change!) and side activities. Also a LIVE DJ: Max Schafer aka DJ Instinct!!!
WHAT IS ABC HEAD START YOU MAY ASK?
ABC Head Start is a local Edmonton organization that provides preschool programs and resources for children from low income families. These children depend on the support of the community and people like yourselves!
This year we will not only be collecting monetary donations but also any school supplies for ABC Head Start. So even if you don't want to participate drop by with some supplies for the children for our box!
We want YOU to help us fundraise. The team that collects the most donations for ABC Head Start wins a prize!
There will also be prizes for first place, sportsmanship, and best dressed.
The ladies of Kappa Alpha Theta are super excited for this years tournament and cannot wait to see all of your beautiful faces on October 1st.

The ladies of Pi Beta Phi® present Pie a Pi Phi!
Do you enjoy baked goods? Do you enjoy throwing pies in the people's faces??? On September 30th, some of our bravest Pi Phis will be taking whipped cream pies right in the face to fundraise for our children's literacy efforts! All proceeds will be donated to Pi Beta Phi's Read>Lead>Achieve® initiative to support children's literacy.
To throw a pie in our faces, it will cost you 5 very well spend dollars/per pie, and you can pick the Pi Phi of your choice out of all the Pi Phis that have volunteereed to be pied!
Delicious baked goods will also be sold by donation! (...There will be cupcakes.)
Pi Beta Phi's philanthrophic effort is Read>Lead>Achieve®, which we hope fosters a lover of reading and a more literate society. Through organizations and initiatives such as First Book, Arrow in the Arctic and The Literacy Fund at Pi Beta Phi Foundation, our dedication to literacy goes back 100 years. We support First Book with the mission to provide new books to children in low-income families. Arrow in the Arctic supports reading in Canada's Northern libraries and helps conserve the language and culture of the Canadian Inuit and First Nations.
Net proceeds will be donated to charity. Donations are not tax-deductible to the donor
This is what you've been waiting for! You'll be receiving your formal invitation to one of the houses you visited last night! Remember how Panhellenic Exec and RC's didn't reveal their affiliations this whole entire time? Well, this reveal will follow your invitations!! We'll all be headed to find your sisters, you'll get to throw what you know and you'll be off for a huge celebration!
A Night of Magic!
Although Formal Recruitment 2016 will be finishing up soon, some of the best is yet to come! This is the night we narrow down your choices with the chapters. You’ll receive an invitation back to 1 or 2 chapters and everyone will be dressed semi-formal. This is a very special night filled with admiration and love for sisters and potential sisters; take it all in! After your parties, you’ll come back to and you’ll make your final decision between the chapters you visited tonight.
Now that you’ve seen the house and chitchatted with some of the girls, here’s your opportunity to see, fundamentally, what makes each chapter unique from the other Panhellenic Women’s Fraternities, especially what each Chapter is proud of. You’ll hear about the events they host, how member dues are set up and budgeted, as well as their specific history. As the girls are getting to know you, get to know the girls you’re talking to as well!
Note: This is also the last night to register for Formal Recruitment 2016.
After all the information that you’ve acquired over the past few days of Recruitment, here’s a little bit more! Each sorority has a philanthropy, an organization or cause they raise money for and seek volunteer opportunity in. Throughout our campus, we support each other by attending their events and, ultimately, having fun! You’ll keep busy talking to girls and doing activities related to their philanthropy. Feel free to ask members why their chapter’s philanthropy is important to them!
