For more than a decade Zeta Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated has raised more than $90,000 for Sickle Cell research at the Nemours Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE. In 2014, the Pearls of Hope Foundation and Zeta Omega Chapter raised $10,000 for the hospital’s research and education program. These funds were raised from our annual sponsorship of “The Sickle Cell Tennis Classic” along with contributions from Alpha Kappa Alpha members, benefactors and friends.
In appreciation of the financial support provided by the Zeta Omega chapter, our name has been placed on the ”Wall of Donors” in the Nemours Hospital for Children’s new 450,000 square foot expansion. This is an honor reserved for organizations and individuals who have made a minimum contribution of $10,000 or more to the hospital. Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and The Pearls of Hope Foundation, Inc. are proud to have contributed to the monumental progress of the sickle cell research and education program at the Nemours Hospital and will continue to support their efforts.
