For Immediate Release

December 2017: ESA Gamma Kappa

December 13, 2017

When a group of people who have similar goals and values work together, great things can happen. ESA Gamma Kappa is doing just that while still having time to bond as a chapter. With only 12 members, they are small but mighty. They have monthly service projects that benefit both the community and local organizations in the suburbs of Cincinnati. The women in this chapter have a strong bond and love giving back to their community. Gamma Kappa is the December Hero because they serve as a reminder that when we work together, we can accomplish wonderful things.

Epsilon Sigma Alpha (ESA) is a premiere leadership/service organization that offers members the programs, information and personal support needed to develop the confidence and competence to impact the world in a positive way. They have a long history of supporting a variety of organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Hope for Heroes, The Cure Starts Now, and Easterseals.

Kathy Solt, a member of the chapter, explained that Gamma Kappa worked with Easterseals in the past but over the years lost contact. With the new Easterseals brand and focus on community engagement they were reunited in 2016. They decided to create a high tea luncheon to benefit those served by Easterseals. She shared that it is very important for Gamma Kappa to make a difference locally. They want their donation of time and funds to go to a meaningful cause, and she couldn’t be happier to have Easterseals as the beneficiary of their work.

Kathy shared that the event was a “win-win” for both organizations. First, it gave Gamma Kappa the spark they needed to prove to themselves that despite being small in numbers (they only have 12 members), they are able to host larger events and make a difference. Second, it allowed Easterseals a way to spread awareness about the how they are changing the way the world views and defines disability by making profound, positive differences in people's lives every day. Kathy shared, “By having Danielle Gentry-Barth, VP of Marketing and Development attend the tea both years, her presence allowed for a more personal touch for the people attending and it showed Easterseals’ support for the event.”

Right now, Gamma Kappa is exploring event opportunities for 2018.  The chapter wants to do something even bigger for Easterseals.

Thank you Gamma Kappa- for your continuous support!

Easterseals makes profound and positive differences in people's lives every day, is thanks in large part to strong partnerships throughout our community. Each month we will recognize an Easterseals Hero, an organization or person whose actions have gone above and beyond to further the purpose of Easterseals: changing the way the world views and defines disability by breaking down barriers to employment for people with disabilities, people facing disadvantages, and veterans.
