The Low Country Kappa Delta Alumnae chapter is celebrating its most successful charity event ever, raising nearly $1,600 for the Child Abuse Prevention Association of Beaufort (CAPA).
Thirty KDs, their friends and families walked together on Hilton Head’s Coligny Beach last month. More than 50 individuals, families and teams also walked “virtually” or in their own neighborhoods.
The Beach Walk is the latest in a series of fundraisers the Low Country Kappa Deltas have held to benefit CAPA.
Over the past 12 years, the Alumnae Chapter has raised thousands of dollars for the nonprofit which serves families in the Lowcountry with residential and outreach programs.
Last fall, the Low Country KDs collected school supplies for teens served by CAPA and also “cleaned their closets” for donations to the CAPA thrift store. The local alumnae have also earned two KiDs Grants, allowing CAPA to buy portable cribs for local parents and bedding for its residential facilities.
The Beach Walk fundraiser also raised nearly $400 for National Kappa Delta’s Shamrock Project in support of Prevent Child Abuse America.
The Low Country KD Alumnae Chapter is a diverse group of community-minded women from Hilton Head, Bluffton, Okatie, Ridgeland and Beaufort. The Low Country Chapter is one of 224 active Kappa Delta alumnae chapters across the country.
