Kappa Alpha Theta is proud to be national supporters of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASA is an organization that provides mentors for abused, abandoned and neglected children. These mentors establish close bonds with the children as they interact one-on-one and serve as a voice for the children during the judicial process.
The Omicron chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta supports CASA in a number of ways including donations resulting from our annual philanthropic fundraising event, Kat at Bat. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the chapter’s diligent effort, we were recently recognized as the Top Giving Chapter to CASA at Kappa Alpha Theta’s Grand Convention.
Along with our monetary gifts, each year we participate in the CASA Glamour Gown Drive, which provides prom dresses for young women of CASA. In the months leading up to the Glamour Gown Drive, we collect lightly used dresses, shoes, and accessories and then donate them to girls who get to choose their own prom dress and coordinating accessories to make their special night truly unforgettable.
We are also proud to support the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation. The mission of Theta Foundation is “to secure and manage resources for the educational, leadership, and philanthropic programs of the Fraternity, and for the scholastic, professional, and service pursuits of its members to help them reach their fullest potential and make a difference in the world.” They are dedicated to raising money for scholarships for current members as well as leadership and educational grants to make members’ dreams achievable. This year, we were able to raise enough money for a scholarship for a current Theta member!
KAT at Bat is Omicron’s annual philanthropic fundraising event to raise support for CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocates and the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation.
Fraternities and other campus organizations register teams to compete in a Wiffle Ball Tournament. It is always a fun-filled day full of music, raffles, and Pink’s hot dogs.

By going to these fraternity-sponsored philanthropic events, Omicron Thetas are supporting many valuable charitable causes while also having fun with other Greek students. Thetas are always excited to participate in these friendly competitions, and often times Team Theta returns home with the championship trophy.
Every year, Theta participates in a number of fraternity philanthropies, including:
