Our Sigma Kappa founders left us with a lasting impression of the importance of philanthropy. Service is one of Sigma Kappa's founding values, and as such, members of Sigma Kappa support multiple philanthropic causes.
Ultra Violet Dodgeball
In the fall, Sigma Kappa not only gathers members of other fraternities but as well as fellow male students at The University of Arizona to compete against each other in a Dodgeball tournament. Sigma Kappa organizes the entire day event and serves as coaches to the participating males. This event is one of the most popular amongst all Greek organizations on campus, with over 1,000+ participants each year. The winners of this year’s tournament were the gentlemen of Kappa Alpha Order!
The Walk to End Alzheimer's
Additionally, every fall our members participate in the Tucson Walk to End Alzheimer's. Every Sigma Kappa across the nation hosts their community's 5k walk. This is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research. This year we raised over $24,000. We were one of the leading donators to the walk. For more information about this year's walk please click here.
Another predominantly known event on campus that is presented by all our members each Spring semester, in which we offer burgers, shoestring fries, hot chocolate, soda, and chili cheese fries to the entire Tucson community. This fun-filled night has a DJ, dancing, and games to play all night long at the Sigma Kappa Mansion! All profits are donated to the Sigma Kappa Foundation where funds are distributed.
One of the newest events our sisters participated in this year was a prom event hosted by a local Alzheimer's home. Our members dressed up in prom dresses and went to the home to dance, hang out, and eat with those in the home. It was an amazing experience as we were able to see what our efforts go towards.
