There's an adage that March roars in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. But in the case of the "First Class" Phi Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc, their focus doesn't just match the intensity of the month. It is a standard that carries through in all of their social and civic events, especially their forthcoming Evening of Pink Elegance with a Touch of Green.
On Saturday evening, March 16th, the members of the Hapeville and south-metro Atlanta based graduate chapter are hosting their 12th annual dinner dance at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel. The semi-formal based affair features a balance of events for a mature audience; complete with a cocktail hour, silent auction, and live entertainment which includes the metro-area renowned band Gritz and Jelly Butter, the signature event for their spring programming promises to be a fun and festive affair for all who are able to attend.
As part of the event, there is a silent auction that is taking place. Proceeds from the event are supporting the scholarship and community activities in the chapter's servicing area, which consists of Hapeville, Fairburn, Palmetto, and Union City.
Ticket purchases and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more details, you may contact the chapter via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-919-0866. Tickets are $75 per person.
A "grown folks" event for the greater good to support scholarships and much needed community programming is a good thing. Considering a chapter that is grounded in the first sorority established for the empowerment of African-American women (the larger sorority is established on the campus of Howard University in 1908) and its legacy of community enrichment and empowerment is an even better thing.
It's more than a serious matter; it's the usual manner in which the Hapeville based chapter operates in its efforts to enrich and empower it servicing area and greater community.
