First class for the community

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Since its founding date of January 15, 1908 on the hallowed grounds of Howard University in Washington, DC, the sorority and its members have a rich tradition and history of leadership and service to the greater community. This same richness is passed onto its undergraduate and alumnae chapters, including one which is chartered by thirty-three women on January 20, 2001.

This would happen to be the chapter that is located in Hapeville, GA.

Since this time, the chapter provides community services and outreach to the communities of Hapeville, Fairburn, Palmetto, and Union City. Through programs aligned with their larger core focal areas via the platforms of Emerging Young Leaders (programs for women in middle school), Health, Global Poverty, Economic Security, Social Justice and Human Rights, and Internal Leadership Training for External Service, the chapter, its members, and supporters are able to reach back and serve multiple communities in the South Fulton County area.

This coming Saturday, March 10th, at 7:30pm at the Westin-Atlanta Airport Hotel, the chapter is hosting its Eleventh Annual Scholarship Dance and Dinner. This "first-class" formal affair provides more than a way in which the chapter is able to celebrate its years of service and provide a festive atmosphere for its patrons; it is a way to generate resources to be redistributed to the community in support of its educational initiatives.

Proceeds from the event not only support the services the chapter provides in the South Fulton (Hapeville, Fairburn, Palmetto, and Union City) area, but it also provides scholarship and other funding opportunities to support the post-high school education pursuits of graduating high school seniors who live in the aforementioned area.

Tickets for the affair are $75 per person; in addition to a cash-bar, full dinner is served at 8:30pm.

A fun, festive event and affair for support of the community and the greater good is the the focus of the function hosted by the Hapeville Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Generating support for its programs and accessing resources to reinvest in the community is more than just a good thing.

It's first-class.
