Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

As the first intercollegiate sorority established for African-American women, since its establishment on January 15, 1908 on the campus of Howard University, the sorority is synonymous with leadership and service in multiple arenas, ranging from the corporate to the public sector.

Of the multiple chapters based in the metro-Atlanta area, this Saturday, March 15th, is more than just recalling the "Ides of March"; the Phi Tau Omega Graduate Chapter takes center stage with its 13th annual dinner dance.

Under the theme of "An Evening of Pink Elegance With a Touch of Green", the Hapeville-based chapter is hosting its semi-formal/formal themed affair to support the multiple service projects and programs it provides for its service area (Hapeville, Fairburn, Palmetto, and Union City), including scholarship opportunities. Starting promptly at 6:30pm (and concluding at midnight), their event provides a classy evening out to support the aforementioned causes and programs in a very mature setting at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel.

A live performance featuring the stylistic r and b "servings" from the area band Gritz and Jelly Butter is part of the featured entertainment for the evening. Combine a full-plated dinner and dancing, the annual affair provides a sound opportunity to enjoy a classy night out for a series of good and needed causes.

Limited tickets are available for this Saturday evening's event; for additional details, you are encouraged to contact the chapter via email (akaphitauomega@gmail.com) or phone (404-919-0866) as soon as possible.

In the same vein, the chapter is sincerely committed to providing access to resources for young people and its immediate community. Ranging from its nationally mandated Signature Program Initiatives to local programs, the women of the chapter are dedicated to their larger emphasis of service to all mankind via its motto, "By Culture and Merit". This Saturday provides one of many examples of how the chapter, along with the larger international sorority, has, is, and will continue to provide leadership and service in the greater community.

Engage in elegance AKA style this coming Saturday; it sounds like a great time and way to get to "stepping" and serving the community.
