On Saturday, April 15th, the Eta chapter of Alpha Xi Delta hosted our first ever Karaoke for a Cause Charity event benefiting Autism Speaks. This event was a Karaoke competition that allowed solos, duets, trios, and quartets to perform a song of their choice in front of a panel of our sisters who were selected to judge on behalf of our chapter. After 4 rounds, a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Alpha Chapter at Syracuse was titled this year’s Karaoke Champion.
We raised money from Karaoke for a Cause through registration fees, admission fees, the sale of raffle tickets during the event, and donations accepted from audience members to buy a way into the next round for their favorite act. Through holding Karaoke for a Cause, 2 bake sales during Autism Awareness month, and our Alpha Xi Delta Fundraising website, we raised $1,843 for Autism Speaks this past Spring Semester! We are so thankful for everyone who donated and contributed to our success and we are excited to raise even more money this fall as we increase our fundraising goal!
