Kappa Phi Gamma Sorority, Inc. wrote -
Kappa Phi Gamma Sororities render service to the community and respective campuses. Since her inception in November 1998, the Sisterhood has participated in a variety of service projects. However, the Sisterhood has dedicated itself to its national philanthropy, cancer awareness. The Founders discovered, that in one way or another, almost all of them had been affected by cancer. They realized that cancer does not discriminate by race, sex, or class; it can affect anyone. For those reasons, the Founders chose to devote our philanthropy for cancer awareness.
Every Spring, Kappa Phi Gamma around the nation plans Cancer Awareness: a Real Effort! (C.A.R.E.) Week, a week long series of events dedicated to raising funds for a cancer organization and to bring awareness to the community about the truths of cancer. To date, Kappa Phi Gamma has raised $98,000+ and has donated their services to over 40 different charities. C.A.R.E. Week has been recognized by the Asian Cup Award for being the only organization of its kind to commit a week of events towards cancer awareness, while incorporating educational and entertaining activities in order to educate the public about early detection and prevention of cancer.
We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with My Hope Chest in Seminole, FL, for our 2017 C.A.R.E. Week efforts. This wonderful organization helps fund breast reconstruction surgeries for patients who have had to undergo mastectomies because of, or to prevent, breast cancer and who are uninsured or underinsured and therefore unable to have the surgery if they so desire it. Please see below for more information on My Hope Chest and the dynamic and courageous founder Alisa Savoretti.
