Hoo-lites!

November 5th, 2012

Kappa Alpha Theta won a Bronze Kite award at Theta Convention this past summer, and we are very proud of them as it is only one of 5 awards to be given out at Convention. They also held their annual Parents’ Formal this past Friday, October 19th at Ashlawn, which was an incredibly successful and fun event!

On Wednesday, October 10th, Kappa Delta successfully hosted their 9th Annual Corner Crawl to benefit Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA). Sixteen restaurants on the historic U.Va. Corner participated, each donating a portion of the evening’s profits to PCAA. Over 1200 guests, including U.Va. students, families, and members of the Charlottesville community, joined us to support the cause by simply eating at one of the participating restaurants. For the first time ever, Kappa Delta’s Corner Crawl was hosted in the fall in partnership with Virginia Homecomings 2012. We would like to thank all who came out to support us in our efforts to raise money and awareness for Prevent Child Abuse America!

FIJI is at it again! 30 plus members of the FIJI fraternity gathered at 203 Ridge St, Charlottesville Fire Headquarters, to assist A-Shift personnel with a work day last Saturday.  This is the second year that the brothers of FIJI have offered their services to assist with a work day. The FIJI crew and A-Shift personnel painted the walls of the apparatus bay, the sitting bench, the rear stairwell, and the protective bollards on the bay doors. Everyone had a great time. “It is my hope that this tradition will continue (and grow), not just because of the work that gets done, but rather the interaction between the members and the Charlottesville Fire Department.” – W.A. Hogsten,  CFI Operations Battalion Chief
