The Kappa Beta Chapter at Northern Kentucky University has a long-standing partnership with Chicks and Chucks, a breast cancer awareness foundation. Chicks and Chucks' missions is to be a resource for breast cancer patients who require products and services while battling the disease, and have little or no financial means to acquire what they need.
Each spring semester, Kappa Beta hosts a kickball tournament, Kicks for a Cure, to raise funds for Chicks and Chucks. These funds go towards supporting those battling breast cancer by providing them with supplies such as wigs and prosthetics, as well as a support system.
In the Spring of 2017, for the first time, Kappa Beta paired with the Eta Rho Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity to raise funds for Chicks and Chucks. The Kappa Beta Chapter held their traditional Kicks for a Cure in conjunction with a golf tournament, Pink and Green Dalmatian Classic, hosted by Pi Kappa Alpha.
Together, Delta Zeta and Pi Kappa Alpha gifted Chicks and Chucks with the single largest donation the organization has received to date. The grand total was $35,528.
"The women of the Kappa Beta Chapter are humbled and honored to partner with such an amazing foundation,: said Tawni Riker, Historian, "and we are so blessed and thankful that we were able to pair with Pi Kappa Alpha to raise such an outstanding amount of money for a such worthy cause."
