The Sigma Kappa Theta Psi Chapter is devoted to serving our community. Each year we participate in a number of service events to support our national philanthropies, as well as the local State College community. You can always be sure to see our chapter as one of the top raising teams for the annual State College Walk to End Alzheimer's.
This past semester Sigma Kappa raised $172 for the Ultra Violet Campaign via a grilled cheese fundraiser, donated $250 dollars in toys to The Ronald McDonald House Charities, had 26 of our sisters participate in the State Day of Service, and sent some of our sisters to deliver Valentines to the Brookline Nursing Home. Next semester be sure to be on the lookout for a Sigma Kappa hosted spaghetti dinner, and a 50/50 raffle for parent’s weekend! Last but certainly not least don’t forget about our upcoming Ultra Violet event in the fall!

Our dancers and THON chairs did an unforgettable job this year and made THON weekend an event to remember. Thank you to everyone who supported our organization this year. Our dancers and THON chairs were above and beyond during the THON weekend and the weeks leading up to it. Congratulations are in order for our newest THON chairs for 2017: Blake Hurley, Alexis DePasqua, Alex Stetson, Madi Greenfield, and Bailey Brucker.
