Hattie McDaniel Cancer Awareness is one of our national projects in which we educate others about early cancer detection and prevention. This year, people were asked to donate $2 for a ticket in which they could win a sweetgrass basket ($90 value), one-night stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites, $25 Buffalo Wild Wings gift certificate, $20 Olive Garden gift certificate, or 2 Northwoods Cinema movie passes. The proceeds provided several gifts to a family of a child with cancer from Camp Happy Days during the holiday season. The winners were Ilene Davis (sweetgrass basket), Dana Coleman (hotel stay), Tyrell Dukes ($25 BWW gift certificate), Jennifer Simpkins ($25 BWW gift certificate), Dyshia Parks ($20 Olive Garden gift certificate, and Val Patrick (movie passes).
Total Funds Raised: $410.50
Project Africare is a national project of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated. The purpose of this project is to raise funds to purchase grain grinders for women in Africa. This year, we, the Kappa Rho Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, did a shoe size fundraiser in order to help out with this cause in which people donate their shoe size in money. (For example, if you wear a size 8 in shoes, you would have donated $8 towards Project Africare.)
Total Funds Raised: $815
