a letter from our
DIRECTOR OF PHILANTHROPY & EXTERNAL EVENTS
Joining Alpha Phi has enriched my life in more ways than one. Everyday I am proud to be surrounded by such kind and amazing women who show a natural desire to help others. Our chapter’s motto “Union Hand in Hand” truly comes to life through our constant efforts to unite people and make our community a better place. We truly value our philanthropic participation both in and out school. Through our annual philanthropies, Red Dress Gala and Mr. Greek, we strive to make a difference and contribute to Alpha Phi’s Foundation for Women’s Heart Health. This year we raised a record-breaking $66,000 at Red Dress Gala, and look forward to organizing yet another successful Mr. Greek. We also strive to have a positive impact on the community together as a chapter. Some of our most memorable philanthropy events occur yearly held by other Greek organizations. I am grateful to know that by joining this organization I have made a positive and meaningful impact in the World, and I can’t wait to share this feeling with our new members!
Love and AOE,
Director of Philanthropy & External Events
Red Dress Gala is Alpha Phi's national philanthropy. Our family, alumnae and friends are invited to an evening filled with food, drinks, and dancing to raise money and awareness for women's heart health. This year's event was the ninth annual Red Dress Gala and it raised over $60,000 in one night. All the proceeds go to the National Alpha Phi Foundation for Women's Heart Health. The Alpha Phi Foundation works to support women's heart health and combat heart disease- the #1 killer of women in North America. Alpha Phi is the only sorority at UCLA with its own foundation.
