The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s Madison alumnae chapter will host their annual Heart and Soul Ball event on Saturday, February 9, 7-11 p.m. at Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center. This year’s theme is Celebrating Kings and Queens of the Past, Present and Future.

Delta Sigma Theta is a non-profit Greek-lettered sorority of college-educated women who perform public service and place emphasis on the African American community. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was founded on January 13, 1913 by 22 collegiate women at Howard University. These students wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need.

Twenty-two women chartered the alumni chapter of Delta Sigma Theta in August 1977 in Madison. Membership is now up to 55 women who work within the community to support different health initiatives, educational initiatives, economic development initiatives, art initiatives and more.

All proceeds from this event will benefit M.A.C. educational programs and scholarship fund.

The community can support the event in three ways; become a sponsor, purchase an ad in the scholarship booklet, and/or purchase tickets. Purchase tickets at Visit the chapters website for more information or send an email to [email protected].
