HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 7, 2009 – Kappa Delta sorority at High Point University is celebrating friendship by observing National Women’s Friendship Month.
To celebrate, the group will host events on Sept. 20 and Sept. 29. All females on campus – students, faculty and staff – are invited to attend the events.
“National Women’s Friendship Day was created in 1999, but this year, Kappa Delta has expanded the celebration to the entire month of September,” says Claudia Mota, vice president of public relations for Kappa Delta.
One event will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 20 in the Ball Room of the Plato S. Wilson School of Commerce. There, the group will host a dress sale and will also make friendship bracelets.
Another event will be held at 8 p.m. on Sept. 29 in the Slane Student Center cafe. There, the group will play friendship trivia.
In addition to campus events, the group will host a tea party with a local Girl Scout troop. Girls in the troop will dress up as princesses, and they will have the chance to decorate teacups.
“This is through our partnership with Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, which promotes self-esteem nationwide through the Girl Scout Uniquely Me! program,” Mota says.
