September 6, 2017- Northern Kentucky University’s Delta Zeta sorority and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity together raised more than $33,000 for Chicks and Chucks, Inc., a non-profit that supports women battling breast cancer.
Delta Zeta presented the check to Cathy Youtsey-Halloran, the founder of Chicks and Chucks, at its August chapter meeting. Chicks and Chucks provides resources to support women in their fight against breast cancer, like wigs and prosthetics.
“The wonderful ladies of Delta Zeta have been supporting our organization for over a decade, and it’s so inspiring to see what these young women have accomplished,” said Cathy Youtsey-Halloran. “In addition to the personal items, our funds are used to buy expensive handbooks that Nurse Navigators can share with newly diagnosed patients.”
“Delta Zeta has been collaborating with Chicks and Chucks for a while and seeing what our events can do to help their cause is why we continue to do it,” said Taylor Schwarz, president of Delta Zeta. “The love and passion that these women hold are valued in Delta Zeta and constantly show us what it’s like to serve others.”
This year, Delta Zeta partnered with Pi Kappa Alpha to hold two philanthropy events—a kickball tournament and golf scramble. Sponsors, students and family members came to support the cause and raise money for Chicks and Chucks.
“Being able to donate to such a passionate organization is a rewarding experience,” said Rick Seal, president of Pi Kappa Alpha. “We all know people who are battling cancer, and Pike is honored to assist those in need.”
Over the last two years, Delta Zeta has donated more than $56,000 to Chicks and Chucks. This year’s $33,528 donation is the largest single donation Chicks and Chucks has received. For more information, visit chicksandchucks.org.
