Kappa Klassic

Kappa Kappa Gamma has a philanthropy that every Kappa chapter across the country supports. But, what I love about Pepperdine’s chapter is we also vote on another philanthropy to support that is near and dear to one of our sister’s hearts.

This year, we fell in love with Wishing Well, which is an organization started by Pepperdine students and their mission to transform the world we live in by providing clean water to those in need.

The minute I was told these couple facts I knew this organization had my vote:

  • “According to the World Health Organization there are still 884 million people who lack access to clean water. Unclean water is responsible for 80% of all disease and over 3 million deaths every year.”
  • “One dollar can give someone in a developing country clean water for year.”

It seemed to me like this is where our chapter could make the most impact, if all it takes is one dollar to give one person in a developing country clean water for a year.

So, once the votes were counted and Wishing Well was announced the winner, our fabulous philanthropy chair, Maggie, got to planning the event that would help us raise money for Wishing Well.

Our event was called Kappa Klassic! We brought in mini golf, ping pong tables, and Arnold Palmers to campus, dressed up in preppy Kountry Klub attire, and took on the role Kappa Kaddies for each team in our tournament!

Through this event, T-shirt sales, and a silent auction, we raised enough money to build a well in Africa that will bring an entire community clean water!!

I am so proud of our philanthropy chair, Maggie, who put her heart and soul into this and so thankful for everyone else who supported Kappa and Wishing Well along the way.

My heart is happy.


P.S. If you find time to watch Wishing Well’s 26 minute documentary, I highly recommend it. Life changing and eye opening.
