Denver Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta

Join Theta sisters and make our community a better place!

Every October, Thetas participate in group service projects to honor Founder Bettie Locke Hamilton’s October birthday. Our chapter offers multiple opportunities for you to help out and advance the mission of a local organization.

For Friends of Red Rocks, we will volunteer in the picturesque hills surrounding the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tasks may include grooming trails, collecting trash, cleaning up parking areas, and more. Current social distancing guidelines will be observed, so please bring a mask in case one is required. And remember to wear your Theta nametag when you participate in this service project as part of the Denver Thetas!

RSVP via Evite. Contact Carolyn Ferreira with questions. All Day of Service updates will be communicated via Evite.

'Tis the season! Join us in holiday attire—or whatever makes you feel festive—to launch the holiday season. During this open house from 4:00-6:00pm at the home of chapter President Karen Olson, the merriment will include a variety of adult beverages and casual snacks contributed potluck style. Your spouse, guest, or significant other is welcome too.

More details about this event will be published as it gets closer.

How do you prepare your carefully tended lawn and landscaping for the Colorado winter? Attend this informative session to find out!

Master Gardener and Theta sister Lucinda Greene, Phi deuteron/Stanford, will walk us through the various steps to “put the garden to bed” in preparation for colder weather. Some steps may be easier than you think... and you might discover some surprising things too. Definitely, you will walk away with information you can use to prepare your plants, shrubs, trees, lawn, and other landscape features for the change of seasons.

Alumnae who pay dues at the Twin Star level help our chapter offer complimentary dues to recent grads and sisters facing financial hardship. Our chapter extends thanks to these ladies with a special event in their honor. Attendance is by invitation only.

Denver Area Panhellenic (DAP) presents its annual Women’s Leadership Summit, a virtual conference that is open to all Greek women (alumnae AND collegians) in the metro Denver area. Topics for the conference include Breaking the Glass Ceiling and Developing Your Personal Brand.

This year’s inspirational keynote speakers will include Kelli Masters, CEO and Founder of KMM Sports Management in Oklahoma City, and Katie Scherping, retired CFO for National CineMedia, the Centennial-based advertising firm that reaches movie-going audiences through Regal, AMC, and Cinemark theaters throughout North America. DAP leaders will also provide updates on local Panhellenic programs and activities.

Funds raised from this event will benefit the DAP scholarship program. Gifts for the speakers have been generously donated by The Kindness Empire, founded by Theta sister Tonya Quinn, who sells unique artisan-made gift packages to enable art education projects at underserved public schools in Denver.

Join Theta sisters—or support the Denver Thetas team—as we participate in the American Heart Association’s annual walk to promote cardiac health and research. Heart disease is the #1 cause of death for Americans, including women.

In lieu of an in-person walk this year, organizers are leaving it up to teams to walk in place, gather at will, or participate virtually. Our team will honor all three ways for you to get involved. Click here to join the Denver Thetas team no matter how you decide to participate. You can also make a donation to any team member or the team overall.

For sisters who want to meet in person, we will meet at 9:00am at the Washington Park Boat House (north side of the structure) and walk together, approximately 2.7 miles around the park. Please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated during the walk. Heart-healthy snacks will be provided. If you ordered a Denver Thetas t-shirt, please plan to wear it... or you can wear any black top to match the rest of us. (If you didn’t order a shirt yet, a second order will be placed as long as you order by June 19.

RSVP via Evite to get additional information and day-of-event updates, and don’t forget to also register with the American Heart Association to become part of our team. There is no cost to register. You will have the opportunity to make a donation as you sign up, and you can set a personal fundraising goal too. Our team’s goal is to raise $1,870!

Support the Beta Iota college chapter’s signature philanthropy event, KATWalk.

Teams from various fraternities and sororities, CU Buffs athletics, and campus organizations take part in this popular annual dance competition, which raised over $30,000 last year. Usually this is a sold-out event, with students, faculty, and parents packed into the Glenn Miller Ballroom on the CU-Boulder campus, but this year you can get the best seat in the house right there in front of your own screen.

Tickets are $2 each for the virtual event via Zoom. You can also make a donation to support this fundraiser benefitting Boulder CASA.
