South Carolina Kappa Alpha Order Raises $24K for Children’s Camp Foundation
On the weekend of October 1, 2016, the Rho Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order at the University of South Carolina hosted a philanthropy Event: Dancing With the KAs to raise funds for The Cole & Stacy Sawyer Memorial Foundation. The event, which drew a crowd of over 350 brothers, parents and friends, featured five featured dancing teams, all vying against each other for the audience’s donations in a friendly dance contest.
When the dust finally settled on the dance floor, Dancing With the KAs raised a total of $24,259 for the Foundation, all supporting the Foundation’s goal of providing Camp Kemo with a permanent Midland’s home for at-need children in the camp’s programs.
