GO FOR THE GOLD
Go for the Gold is our chapter's new signature philanthropy event. Twenty teams compete in minute-to-win-it type challenges, with an MIT-spin to them. Go for the Gold is an all-hands-on-deck experience. The event draws in guests that come to cheer on their friends and support CASA.
Led by the philanthropy chair and deputies, Go for the Gold is a great way to get involved in philanthropy during the academic year. Sisters are in charge of finding sponsors and crafting the perfect night of games, food, and entertainment. We love every moment of Go for the Gold preparation, and the event is a great way to bond with other sisters as the chapter contributes to an awesome cause.
All proceeds go to support CASA, Kappa Alpha Theta's national philanthropy.
Sisters are given the opportunity to help at the Boston CASA Gala fundraising event, managing the silent auction and serving food to attendees. The CASA Gala is an inspirational night that brings together important Boston figures, CASA advocates, donors, and children.
Finals Care Packages
Thetas help their classmates and friends by selling care packages in MIT's Lobby 10. For only a few dollars, any member of the MIT community can order a care package—consisting of snacks, school supplies, and stress relievers—to be delivered to a friend on campus. Finals care packages raise at least $700 for CASA every year.
CAKE POPS for CASA
Every spring, our sisters sell delicious cake pops in MIT's Student Center. Baking and decorating cake pops is extremely time-intensive, yet creative. It's a great way for sisters to donate their time, while spending time with each other. This spring, we made 1000 cake pops, and sold out in a day and a half, raising $1200 overall.
