Description

Join us in celebrating achievers past, present, and future!

January 15, 2017 will mark the 109th anniversary of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

The film Hidden Figures tells the story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson all three ladies were members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. The three African-American female mathematicians worked for NASA in the 1950s. They charted the orbit of astronaut John Glenn and were integral to NASA's successful Moon landing.

This event is a fundraiser for the 15 Pearls And A Promise Inc./ Theta Chi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated scholarship fund. Each year we grant funds for Grand Rapids Area middle and high school students to attend academic enrichment programs (grades 6-11) or college/university (grade 12).

15 Pearls And A Promise is the 501(c)3 designated philanthropic arm of Theta Chi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
