Silent Auction and Family Weekend
On the weekend of April 17th-19th our chapter invited our parents to come visit and spend time with their daughters! On Friday, the families enjoyed a tour of the chapter facility with some light snacks and members of our Executive Board answered any questions about Theta. On Saturday, we had our fourth annual silent auction benefiting CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). At the auction there was delicious food, a live band, and many items to bid on. All proceeds benefited CASA and thanks to everyone in attendance we were able to raise over $7,000. This event was planned by our Chief Marketing Officer, Ceara Irons, and our Service and Philanthropy Chair, Lindsay Adams. On Sunday, we celebrated our sister's good grades at our Scholarship Brunch held at the college's Alumni Center planned by our Scholarship Director, Alyssa Burtis.
On Sunday, April 14th, we enjoyed a fun sisterhood retreat at Charleston Ice Palace! We all started in College of Charleston's Cistern and enjoyed a delicious Chipotle picnic and bonding time with our sisters. Then, we headed over to Charleston Ice Palace for ice skating! Sisterhood Retreat was planned by our Chief Education Officer, Tate Moore. Tate says, "It was so sweet seeings sisters help each other and teach each other tricks. I think it went really well and everyone bonded which was the ultimate goal."
One of our talented members, Kate Alexander, had a piece of her art displayed at the College of Charleston's Young Contemporaries Exhibition. Kate says, "It was a great experience that gave me some insight to what the professional art world is like. It was my first sculpture using metal or welding, so I was really flattered that the gallery chose to put it in the Young Contemporaries Exhibition. My sculpture is called Cessation Tree and is made completely from sheet metal and pipe." Congratulations, Kate!
Another one of our sisters, Megan Shea, is participating in an amazing cause, 4K for Cancer. She will be participating in a 49 day, 4000+ mile run from San Francisco to New York City. Megan is currently raising money for those affected by cancer and who need our support.
