JOIN US FOR THE 2012 TAAP SPRING LUNCHEON!

Date: Saturday April 14th

11:00 am – 2:30 pm

Friends are welcome!

Once again this Spring, we will gather in celebration of philanthropy at TAAP and our member sororities and women’s fraternities. We will showcase all that our membership does locally, and nationally.

We are thrilled to be at an exciting new venue this year: Brassaii (http://www.brassaii.com/). Our Keynote Speaker will be award-winning documentary filmmaker and media arts teacher Sandra Danilovic. The theme of Sandra’s presentation will be Online Game Avatars: Their Empowerment and Use in Society (aka You Are What You Avatar!). For more information about Sandra, please read below.

Exciting changes have been made to the TAAP Scholarship Program. Starting this year, TAAP will award one scholarship to an undergraduate
sorority woman in Ontario as well as one scholarship to an alumnae sorority woman who is an active member of TAAP.

The 2012 scholarships will be awarded at the luncheon. And don’t forget the Silent Auction and Bake Sale! Both, as always, will be full of great selections donated to TAAP.

Tickets for the lunch are $35 for members and $40 for non members

We look forward to seeing you there!

TAAP Item Donation Day

On Saturday, February 11 from 1PM to 3PM, The Toronto Area Alumnae Panhellenic (TAAP) is hosting an Item Donation Day in support of New Circles (www.newcircles.ca). New Circles is a local not-for-profit community support agency that strives to help the City of Toronto, with a focus on those residing in the Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park, and Victoria Village communities. Their primary service is a clothing program which provides new and gently used clothing for men, women and children. Towels and bedding for all mattress sizes are also urgently needed.

New Circles also collects formal wear for boys and girls with their Prom Boutique program. The dresses, suits and accessories are available to local students in need. This special program allows students to select outfits at no cost – they are not inhibited from attending a milestone event.

This is a great way to get a head start on spring cleaning and meet alumnae from all different panhellenic sororities!

This event will be hosted at the Gamma Phi Beta house, 26 Madison Avenue. The nearest intersection is Spadina and Bloor. The nearest subway stop is Spadina. Parking is available at a Green P located on Spadina just north of Bloor.
