ORGANIZER: Kappa Alpha Order
Kappa Alpha Order -University of Maryland- wrote -We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. In 2009, one of our brothers lost his mother to the terrible illness, and it was at that time that we decided to take a stand.
We, the brothers of Kappa Alpha Order at the University of Maryland, founded our annual philanthropy, Breastfest of Champions, with the goal of ending breast cancer once and for all.
For 5 straight years, Breastfest of Champions has continually grown in scale, and is now the second largest student run philanthropy at the University of Maryland.
While our contributions have been notable, we know we can do more. By teaming up with the sisters of the Maryland chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha, we want this year's Breastfest to raise more money for breast cancer research than ever before.
The greek community is constantly in the news for negative attention, and we want to show the world that we can come together and raise money for a great cause.
100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research at the
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (http://www.cshl.edu/)
Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation (http://www.zetataualpha.org/cms400min/Foundation.aspx)
Any assistance that you can provide to our cause would be much appreciated. Thank you.
