Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign: Beyond Pink 2018

BCA has always been one of the most important annual events. This year, 14 other Greek organizations participated in our campaign. All of our sisters worked hard on contacting sponsors, planning and organizing events, and advocating the campaign. Through diverse methods of fundraising and fun activities like spicy food challenge and raffle ticket sales, the Chapter raised more than $5,000 dollars for our philanthropical cause, which makes us the Chapter with third highest amount raised for BCA according to the data from last year, while promoting breast cancer awareness around campus. This year's BCA has been very successful, and we really appreciate the efforts of Vice President of Service Lucy "Eirene" Wang for putting up such an amazing campaign.
