EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2016
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Nov 04, 2016
Welcome to Breastfest of Champions 2016!
Breastfest of Champions is an annual philanthropy event hosted by Kappa Alpha Order and Zeta Tau Alpha University of Maryland chapter. For the past eight years, Kappa Alpha has hosted this event to benefit organizations which support the fight against Breast Cancer. The event was inspired by an organization created by an alumnus’ family after experiencing the loss of a loved one due to breast cancer. This year, Kappa Alpha is fundraising directly for Cold Spring Harbors Laboratory. Zeta Tau Alpha's has co-hosted this wonderful eventwith Kappa Alpha Order for the past three years. Their national philanthropy is Breast Cancer Awareness and Education and are nationally patnered with the non-profit organization Bright Pink, The American Cancer Society as well as The NFL.
Last year, we had over 2,000 students and faculty attend the event, over 50 sponsoring organizations and companies. Last year's event included food, raffles, a guest speaker, and a “Wall of Champions” where guests could write the names of loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer. Breastfest of Champions 2015 raised over $50,000 and we hope for even more this year. This year, Breastfest of Champions will take place on Thursday, October 20th at Fraternity Row between 4-6 pm. We hope you all can make it and cannot wait to see you there!
