WKU Greek Homearama raises $1,155 for Circle of Sisterhood Foundation

WKU Greek Homearama raises $1,155 for Circle of Sisterhood Foundation

Last week, WKU Greek organizations opened their homes for tours as part of a fundraiser for the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation.

Homearama provided an opportunity to visit and tour a parade of Greek houses at WKU. For $1 participants received a ticket to tour individual houses; for $5 they received a wristband to see any of the houses. In total, the WKU Greek Homearama raised $1,155 for Circle of Sisterhood Foundation.

Both sororities and fraternities put their homes on display for the Homearama on April 6. The sorority houses were Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha Omicron Pi, Chi Omega, Phi Mu and Sigma Kappa. The fraternity houses included Farmhouse, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, Fiji, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Nu and Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Homearama may be WKU’s next big Greek tradition. “The event went really well! I am so happy with the results,” said Circle of Sisterhood Committee Chair Amy Teta. “I definitely see the potential this event has for the coming years.”

The money raised by the WKU Homearama will be donated to the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation to fund an array of initiatives. Circle of Sisterhood supplies grants to other organizations that work to remove barriers to education, as well as fund the building of school structures. The organization also provides girls with required materials to obtain an education such as tuition, books, school supplies, uniforms, and lunches.

“Working with the Circle of Sisterhood has given me the opportunity to educate our campus about girls’ education and how we can help,” Teta said. “I am impressed with how quickly its impact is expanding.”

The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation was founded in 2010 in an effort to remove barriers to girls’ education. By empowering college-educated sorority women, Circle of Sisterhood can make a difference across the globe. The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation has worked in 22 countries on four continents, and it has built 11 schools in five countries -- Nicaragua, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal and Haiti. Founder Ginny Carroll is an alumna of WKU and Alpha Xi Delta.

This is the first year Circle of Sisterhood has become institutionalized within WKU’s Panhellenic Council. This chapter at WKU sponsors fundraising opportunities, such as Homearama, for Circle of Sisterhood Foundation. It also works to provide awareness about the current state of girls’ education and inequality across the globe.
