Tri Kappas Go Above & Beyond

Tri Kappa continues their support of Riley Cheer Guild! During the Tri Kappa Biennial State Convention the weekend of April 18th, they collected thousands of fleece blankets, pinafores, puppy pillows, handbags, ties, jewelry, and more to benefit Riley Cheer Guild. As a service project, they taught their members how to make single layer blankets and pinafores, which resulted in 100 more fleece blankets and 60 more pinafores that were donated! Additionally, Heather Dawes, the Director of Riley Cheer Guild attended the Philanthropy luncheon where she was presented a check for $10,092 to support Music Therapy! Riley Cheer Guild also received $7,690 from Tri Kappa in 2014, therefore a grand total of $17,782 was given to Riley Cheer Guild over the two year fundraising term! Throughout the convention, members turned in a total of $2,05 in gift cards to help the Toy Room. All of this is above and beyond the membership dues paid by Tri Kappa Chapters and those who also pay as Individual Members of Riley Cheer Guild! THANK YOU TRI KAPPA! Riley Cheer Guild is so blessed to have your continued support in helping us to fullfill our mission of enhancing the experience of a hospital stay for patients and their families. Good luck in all you do in the next term!
