Service & Scholarship
Gamma Nu Omega supports our community through various community service projects and scholarship fundraising events. Our activites are shaped by our National Program Objectives.
FASHIONETTA®, a trademark program of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., is a 6-month program which exposes our youth to educational, cultural, and social events as well as participation in community service projects and an opportunity for the participants to display their many talents. Held every two years and centered on the current International Program Theme of Global Leadership Through Timeless Service, the 2013 Fashionetta will provide activities that focus on the six Signature Program Initiatives. Their months of dedicated effort culminate in an elegant, formal affair that will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2013 at the C.A. Johnson High School Auditorium in Columbia, SC. There will be approximately 30 contestants vying for the titles of Little Miss Fashionetta, Jr. Miss Fashionetta, and Miss Fashionetta. The theme is Grooming Ladies Of Beauty And Leadership.
This program, sponsored by the Gamma Nu Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., serves as one of the major fundraising activities and enables the Chapter to support numerous community service projects in the Columbia area. The Chapter continuously supports Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Richland County Public Library, Palmetto Legal Services, Columbia Urban League, NAACP, Palmetto Children’s Hospital, Breast Cancer Walk for Life, and many other community initiatives. It is through its fundraising efforts that the Gamma Nu Omega Chapter has awarded nearly $500,000 in scholarships over the years to students in the Columbia Metropolitan area.
The kickoff of the Fashionetta was the Green Tea held at the Cecil Tillis Center in Columbia, South Carolina. Members of Gamma Nu Omega donned beautiful hats and gloves and shared tea and scones with the participants and their families. Remove current pictures and add new pictures
