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!
