October Newsletter

Greetings, Parents, and thank you for checking out this month's update!  October has been quite a busy month, with Fall Break, mid-terms, and the like.  It would be natural to assume that Greek activities would slow in response to academic pressure.  However, the members of Kappa Zeta have remained active in spite of it all. 


Thank You!

First, some thanks are in order.  Kappa Zeta would like to thank all the parents and sisters of Chi Omega for an awesome turnout at our Parent's Day Tailgate!  The weather was perfect, the food was nice, but--more importantly--the Cards pulled out a win against Wake Forest!  We hope that everyone had a good time, and we hope  we were able to show how much we appreciate everything you've done for us. 


Also on the subject of tailgate, Saturday, October 18th, was the date of Kappa Zeta's Alumni Tailgate.  This was Kappa Zeta's chance to show the sizable network of greater Louisville alumni our appreciation for their contributions to this chapter, as well as celebrate their accomplishments after graduation.  Although it was a bit cloudy and cold, we'd like to thank those in attendance for 'bro-ing out' to see another win for the Cards.

Mr. raiseRED

This month saw the first major promotional event for UofL's biggest philanthropic event, raiseRED Dance Marathon.  Mr. and Ms. raiseRED is a pageant, in which the various fraternities and sororities on campus elect a representative to compete.  Winners are selected based upon how well they represent the ideals tied to the event, and are expected to serve as ambassadors for the organization in the weeka and months preceding the event.  This year, Pi Kappa Alpha chose brother Evan Oberhausen to represent us onstage. We'd like to thank him for stepping up, and commend him for the stellar Napoleon Dynamite routine.

Some exciting things are on the horizon for Kappa Zeta, most notably the 3rd Annual Pike Fireman Challenge!  On Saturday, November 15th at 1:00pm, we'd like to invite all of you to join us on Fourth Street Live! for our biggest Fall fundraiser for WHAS's Crusade for Children.
