Eta Upsilon Shamrock ‘n Shag


Dear Triangle Area Kappa Delta Alumnae,

On behalf of the women of Kappa Delta (“ΚΔ”) Sorority at NC State University, I am pleased to write to you regarding an important fundraising event. Each March, ΚΔ collegians and alumnae throughout the country hold functions to benefit Prevent Child Abuse America (‘PCAA’) – an organization leading the charge to stop violence against our nation’s youth. The Sisters of ΚΔ are calling upon our families, friends, and community leaders to donate to this deserving cause.

On Saturday, March 21st the Eta Upsilon Chapter of ΚΔ will host its 4th annual Shamrock ‘n Shag event – a dessert reception complete with shag dancing and a silent auction – in support of this worthy cause. Eighty percent of the event profits will be given to our local Prevent Child Abuse America benefactor, SAFEchild of Raleigh, and the remaining twenty percent will be sent to PCAA to fund nationwide public awareness programs. Last year, ΚΔ friends, families and event attendees helped our chapter raise over $20,000 for SAFEchild of Raleigh. With your help we hope to exceed that amount in 2015. Although these donations are not tax deductible*, they do have a direct, positive impact on children in Raleigh.

What a donation to SAFEchild provides:

$500                Provides 50% of comprehensive services to a young victim of child abuse and their family at the SAFEchild Advocacy Center

$250                Pairs a new mother with a professionally trained Welcome Baby mentor for 6 months

$120                Provides snacks and course materials for a family participating in group parenting classes

$100                Teaches 45 1st grade children about Funny Tummy Feelings and how to protect themselves from unwanted advances

$50                  Provides five girls cared for at the SAFEchild Advocacy Center a copy of The Care and Keeping of You to help them better understand their growing bodies

$25                  Provides parent curriculum for two parents in SAFEchild’s Nurturing program

To support our goal, visit or please send a donation made payable to Kappa Delta Sorority by March 21st to:

Kappa Delta Sorority – Attn: Shamrock Committee

2304 Greek Village Drive

Raleigh, NC 27606

In addition to monetary donations, we would love your support in gathering silent auction items. If you have a business, service, or product that would appeal to the 500+ local attendees we would love to feature it in our auction!
