Bountiful Basket ~ Our Online Scholarship Benefit 2021
We continue to celebrate women by offering an Online Scholarship Benefit for 2021. Due to COVID, we're conducting our fundraising activities by requesting donations online from our generous supporters. The donation period is now on!
New this year, CNSAPA has changed the mission of our scholarships. We now award sorority women who are providing leadership to NPC chapters and their campus. There are fewer scholarship options for continuing students. We wish to reward those who are active in the sisterhood experience CNSAPA values so highly.
Learn more about how you can make a difference on our Online Scholarship Benefit 2021 page. We are so grateful for your previous contributions and ask for your continued support until we can meet again.
Congratulations to our 2020 Scholarship Winners
The Chicago North Shore Alumnae Panhellenic was proud to announce our two scholarship winners, Ms. Trisha Patel (shown left), and Ms. Bridget Zhu (rt.) These two remarkable high school senior women excelled in the areas
of academia and community service. Trisha, a graduate of Stevenson High School, is the recipient of the Service Scholarship and plans to attend UCLA in the fall to study biology. Bridget, also from Stevenson High School, received our Academic Scholarship and plans to attend Duke University this fall to study engineering.
CNSAP annually awards monetary assistance to outstanding area high school senior women who will attend a college or university with National Panhellenic Conference sorority affiliations. Grants were also provided to Northwestern University and Lake Forest College women to attend the Undergraduate Interfraternity Leadership Conference. Your support and contributions to our online Scholarship Dinner Benefit Auction for 2020 made it possible. We thank you, and congratulate our two deserving scholarship winners!
Kappa Alpha Theta Alumnae is a Jeopardy Champion!
In November, Alex Damisch won three games on the popular TV show "Jeopardy," securing her status as a "Jeopardy" Champion. Alex, a data scientist, is a long-time participant in academic competitions. She was involved in quizbowl in Jr. High, as an undergrad at Lawrence University in Wisconsin, and as a graduate student at DePaul. Currently, Alex keeps up her skills regularly playing trivia with her data scientist teammates in Logan Square. The team is appropriately named "She blinded me with data science."
Alex is a Kappa Alpha Theta alumnae from Northbrook, while her mother Patty Damisch, a Gamma Phi Beta, is on the Chicago North Shore Alumnae Panhellenic board. Articles on Alex's experience and success can be found in the Nov. 29, Dec. 2, and Dec. 3 issues of the Chicago Tribune. Also, in the Logan Square neighborhood publication Block Club Chicago.
Volunteering at Bernie's Book Bank on Oct. 19 and 22
There were two sisterhood afternoons of sorting books in October, as we assisted the Bernie's Book Bank staff in preparing new and used children's books for distribution throughout Chicagoland.
CNSA Panhellenic President Linda Grandolfo (top rt; Alpha Omicron Pi) and Beth Kemp (center; Kappa Kappa Gamma) joined the Chicago North Shore Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta on October 19. Then, on October 22, our Panhellenic women gave even more. Our chapter gathered to help process, sort, and organize quality new and gently used children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers, and school-aged children. Volunteering has proven to be a rewarding opportunity for sorority sisters, friends, and family members, as we pitched in to give back. We enjoyed the teamwork and knowing our efforts were going towards such a worthy cause. Way to go, Panhellenic!
CNWSAP Stylin' for Scholars Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon 2019
The Chicago Northwest Suburban Alumnae Panhellenic chapter held their annual scholarship luncheon benefit to raise funds for local area high school and collegiate sorority women, on Sunday, November 3. This year's theme was Stylin' for Scholars, showcasing fall fashions from White House Black Market, a themed basket raffle, silent auction, and luncheon. (lft. to rt.) Susan Hurley, Ann Marie Barry, and CNSAP president Linda Grandolfo, traveled to the Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington IL, to attend the event. We like to help our sisters out!
New Governance Structure Announced for NPC
In October, 2018, during the National Panhellenic Conference annual meeting, the board of directors approved revised governing documents that allow for the development of a new organizational and governance structure designed to make the Conference more nimble and responsive to the most pressing challenges facing students, campus partners and the greater Panhellenic community.
About Our CNSA Panhellenic Members
Our membership draws from across the north suburbs of the Chicagoland area. We bring women of all ages and all member sororities together, working for the common goals of philanthropy and community service.
Our Delegates meet regularly at different locations to plan the next annual Scholarship Benefit, The Sorority Life informational gatherings, exchange ideas, socialize, and make other important decisions that will bring positve effects to our Chicago North Shore community.
Want to Become a Member?
We established this Association because we encourage all women to investigate what belonging to a sorority can mean to them. We are proud of our contributions and service to our communities, believing that being a sorority member has helped us become well-rounded, more considerate, and giving individuals.
There are members of all ages in our group who share our passion for volunteerism and philanthropy. We are always pleased to welcome new members who bring a breath of fresh air and new ideas to the group.
