Chapter Philanthropy

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.


Fall Events

October 12, 2018 - Fifth Annual Ultra Violet 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 the Hillside Club and contributed to our philanthropy! We were able to donate almost $11,000 to the Sigma Kappa Foundation, which is the second largest donor to the Alzheimer's Association behind the federal government.

Past Spring Events:


Rodeo For Charity

We finished our semester with our Rodeo for Charity! We had a mechanical bull, apple bobbing, a lasso contest, and fried chicken!! The women in our chapter brought their favorite cowboy boots & hat to see how long they could stay on the bull! All proceeds from this event went to the USO and Alzheimer's Association to support our troops and those diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

Sigma Sundaes

In the spring, Sigma Kappa hosts its annual Sigma Sundaes ice cream social to support Alzheimer’s research. Our house is transformed into an elaborate customizable sundae bar featuring scrumptious Big Bear Ice Cream and endless toppings. This spring we had a visit from the Berkeley Fire Department and raised over $750 for the event! Check back in the spring for a date to join us!
