Welcome to Breastfest, 2015!
Breastfest of Champions is an annual philanthropy event hosted by Kappa Alpha Order's University of Maryland chapter. For the past seven years, Kappa Alpha has hosted this event to benefit organizations which support the fight against Breast Cancer. The event was inspired by an organization created by an alumnus’ family after experiencing the loss of a loved one due to breast cancer. This year, Kappa Alpha is fundraising directly for Cold Spring Harbors Laboratory. For the second year in a row, the Sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha will join the Brothers of Kappa Alpha order in co hosting this event. Zeta Tau Alpha's national philanthropy is Breast Cancer Education, Awareness and Research.
Last year, we had over 2,000 students and faculty attend the event, over 50 sponsoring organizations and companies. Last year's event included food, raffles, a guest speaker, and a “Wall of Champions” where guests could write the names of loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer. Breastfest of Champions 2014 raised over $50,000 and we hope for even more this year. This year, Breastfest of Champions will take place on Thursday, October 15th at Fraternity Row between 4-6 pm. We hope you all can make it and cannot wait to see you there!
