Casino Night 2011 and Race For the Cure

Has anyone in your life been affected by breast cancer? About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop this terrible disease over the course of their lifetime.
Zeta Tau Alpha's National philanthropy is Breast Cancer Education and Awareness, so we put on our Annual Casino Night to support the fight against breast cancer. A HUGE thanks to Sophie Martini and Teiko Uyekawa for planning and producing this memorable night. We are humbled to announce that we raised over $40,000 this year! 

In true Zeta style, we danced the night away with our sisters and guests, enjoyed delicious cupcakes provided by the Cake Mamas, and enjoyed an awe-inspiring evening thanks to our many sponsors, family, and friends!
Race for the Cure
Most days, people don't enjoy waking up at 5am, but there is one day that Zetas always look forward to waking up at the crack of dawn: Race for the Cure! We enjoy meeting those who have survived breast cancer, and we volunteer in honor and memory of those who have lost their fight. This year, the Los Angeles Race for the Cure was held at Dodger's Stadium, and our chapter members help with everything from registration tables to leading the survivors. We are truly amazed by the women who have persevered after a diagnosis of breast cancer for a year up to 50 years of survivorship! These women inspire us to never give up through any of the challenges that we face in life.
