On February 19th, Theta had our main philanthropy event: Cakes for CASA! CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. These individuals work with children going through the court systems. In addition to supporting CASA, the Eta Omega supports Voices for Children. CASA is Kappa Alpha Theta’s national philanthropy, while Voices is Eta Omega’s local philanthropy. Voices also works to help children in foster care.
Our event Cakes for CASA is a fun way to raise money for these commendable causes. Chris Cakes keeps pancakes flipping through the air throughout the entire event, and event-goers can have unlimited pancakes (if they can catch them, that is). This year we also had a Capella group Bare Naked Statues perform.
In total, over 600 people came to our event. We are happy to report that we raised over $5,000 for our cause.
Thank you to all who came, and a special thanks to our Theta sisters who planned the event, we couldn’t have done it without you!
We are the Eta Omega chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at Saint Louis University. We were established on November 9th, 2013. We have over 180 wonderful sisters that are alike in many ways but all with unique interests. Our blog will highlight many of these.
