Please join us for our 3rd Annual Love Never Forgets Event!
We are once again supporting our largest national philanthropy, by raising money for the Sigma Kappa Foundation which will be allocated for Alzheimer's Research. It will be a fabulous time, for a fabulous cause!
At the event you will enjoy cocktails, a light dinner, fellowship, and opportunities to support Love Never Forgets through a silent auction and a cork pull!
Tickets cost $52.50 and can be purchased here.
In spring of 2014, Sigma Kappa committed to raising the lead gift of $1 million to the Alzheimer’s Association’s Women’s Research Initiative within 5 years. At the 2014 Convention, Carolyn Tieger, Epsilon Epsilon, announced a challenge gift – if Sigma Kappa raised $500,000 by 2016 Convention, she would match it dollar for dollar allowing us to fulfill the commitment in two years instead of five. This challenge prompted National Council to issue the Alumnae Challenge: for each Alumnae chapter to raise at least $1,000 for this campaign.
Here in Houston, we took this challenge to heart, and spurred on by the catch phrase “everything is bigger in Texas” we decided to put together an event to celebrate our online fundraising efforts, and maybe even add to the amount we had raised. And so the Love Never Forgets event was born. The first year we raised over $15,000.
Sigma Kappa presented the Alzheimer’s Association with the $1 million lead gift for the Women’s Alzheimer’s Research Initiative at the 87th national convention held in Chicago in July 2016.
As a result of all our hard work, Houston Alumnae Chapter won the Gerontology Service Award from the Sigma Kappa Foundation for the development of an outstanding community philanthropy project that reflects Sigma Kappa’s interest in Alzheimer’s disease and gerontology.
