Last weekend, I had the honor of attending and helping with the South Carolina Sigma Sigma Sigma State Day! It was the 3rd state day for South Carolina, and we are leading the National Organization in planning and organizing State Day events. Emmy, who is a sister from my chapter, Epsilon Pi, headed up the event - yall, she did an AMAZING job! We had 84 women registered to attend which is fantastic! :)Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation. The Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation awards money for scholarships, leadership programs, and for Tri Sigma's national philanthropy, play therapy (another cause that I LOVE LOVE LOVE). We had an incredibly generous offer to match all money raised on Saturday, so our total ended up being a little higher! My scrappy Sigma quilt sold for $120, and our raffle raised $141 dollars. Once those numbers were matched, we raised almost $700!
Here's what the fundraising corner set up looked like:
I really LOVED this quilt, so I was THRILLED with the wonderful home it went too. Miss Emily just had to have it. She outbid everyone! :) Once we presented it to her, she wouldn't take it off!! I love knowing that it means so much to her!
I was asked to make another similar quilt to donate to the Sigma Sigma Sigma Convention this summer at Walt Disney World. I'm so honored that representatives of my national organization want to have one to auction off! It means the WORLD to me! I almost cried when they asked me!
These sweet girls are my Sigma family---including my little, my grandlittle, my great great grandlittle, and my great great great gandlittle! Yup!! that's a whole lot of Sigma love going on!: )
Attending State Day this year made me even more grateful and appreciative about becoming a Sigma Sigma Sigma. Truly, it was a decision that continues to have a positive impact on my life. It greatly influenced who I am today as a woman, and I am so proud to wear my letters!
