Sigma Kappa Lambda Chapter is committed to serving our community! Each semester, we participate in philanthropies that service our national philanthropies and the Greater Bay Area.
- September 19, 2015 - Walk to End Alzheimer's
Together with the San Francisco/ East Bay Area Alumnae Chapter, Lambda Chapter fundraises and gathers together in support of the fight to end Alzheimer's disease. The 5k Walk to End Alzheimer's is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. This year, Lambda chapter exceeded our goal and raised $3,275.00! If you would like to join our team or donate, please support us!
- October 2, 2015 - Ultraviolet Gala
Sigma Kappa’s annual fall philanthropy event, The Ultra Violet Gala, is an elaborate ‘purple tie’ formal benefiting Alzheimer’s research. Taking place during Homecoming Weekend, this event is a major Greek community fundraiser, hosting UC Berkeley students, parents, and alumni. The party, which raises tens of thousands of dollars, is a festive evening of live performances and entertainment, delicious cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, lively auctions of donated luxury items and gift packages, and appearances by honored guests. Thank you to all who came to Berkeley City Club and contributed to our philanthropy! We were able to donate almost $15,000 to the Sigma Kappa Foundation, which is the second largest donor to the Alzheimer's Association behind the federal government.
