The evening will symbolically pay homage to Black people whose lives have been lost to AIDS and community leaders that have contributed to the fight against it.

Stepping it up

The article is about a week old but interesting!



Big competition in Cincinnati
brings together stellar stompers

By Lauren Bishop / Enquirer staff writer
At about 10 p.m. on a weekday night, this part of the Xavier University campus is dark and quiet. The call of crickets chirping breaks the silence - and then, suddenly, the sound of stomping, clapping and chanting from inside the Armory.

"We ... are ... the ... divas (stomp clap, stomp clap) of D-S-T!"

So begins a routine that eight members of two Cincinnati-area alumnae chapters of Delta Sigma Theta sorority will perform at one of the largest Greek step competitions in the Midwest Saturday night, bringing eight Ohio teams to the Aronoff Center for the Arts.

The show is part of a weekend full of festivities associated with the P&G Ohio Classic, the centerpiece of which is Saturday's football game between Grambling State and Bethune-Cookman at Paul Brown Stadium.

Delta is Falcon's exec

Nice profile from Sunday's AJC. Check the link for the entire article, but here is a snippet.

http://www.ajc.com/sunday/content/ep...08014002f.html


Susan Bass

She has unfettered access to players (and great viewing spots at Falcons games). More importantly, her chief concern is making the Falcons and all things connected to them look good --- off the field and in the community. Her job takes her inside the locker room, on the sidelines, throughout the community and in the Falcons' boardroom, as well as the front office of the team's Flowery Branch headquarters.

Her title --- vice president of communications and community relations --- takes her places most football fans can only dream and places her squarely among Falcons owner Arthur Blank's trusted team of image-makers.

Delta Sigma Theta Partners with Chase Home Finance and Genworth Financial To Promote

Press Release

Delta Sigma Theta Partners with Chase Home Finance and Genworth Financial To Promote Minority Homeownership


(AANewswire)Washington, D.C., October 6, 2004 – Building on its commitment to promote home ownership, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. today announced a partnership with Chase Home Finance to provide discounted and flexible products, dedicated mortgage specialists and financial education and counseling. Chase will offer Delta Sigma Theta members and their families a closing cost rebate, and has established direct access to a broad range of home finance solutions through a dedicated phone number and dedicated local loan officers assigned to the Delta chapters nationwide.


“Our organization understands the role that homeownership plays in stabilizing families, building wealth and creating a legacy for the next generation,” said Dr. Louise A. Rice, the National President of Delta Sigma Theta, the largest minority sorority in the United States . “By joining forces with Chase Home Finance, a leading mortgage lender that has made significant inroads in closing the gap in homeownership among minorities, and Genworth Financial, we are advancing our mission to promote financial literacy and economic empowerment among African American women and the broader community.”


Delta Sigma Theta has more than 290,0000 members and over 900 chapters in 38 states. Last year, when Gwendolyn Boyd, the former president, established homeownership as a priority for the organization, the sorority began working with Genworth Financial, a provider of mortgage insurance, which often is needed for home purchases.


Now, the Chase Home Finance partnership will provide members and their families with discounted and flexible products, dedicated mortgage specialists, educational workshops, financial counseling services, as well as online information on the home buying process. Delta members will also have access to Chase’s Union Plus® Mortgage Program, which offers mortgage discounts and other benefits such as free mortgage assistance in the case of unemployment due to disability, redundancy or short-term strike. Genworth Financial will continue to provide lower-cost alternatives for mortgage insurance.


“We’re delighted to be partnering with Delta Sigma Theta on this very important initiative,” said Thasunda Brown, Chase Home Finance’s Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. “In 2003, Chase Home Finance announced the $500 billion Chase Dream Maker CommitmentSM, a pledge to helping millions of traditionally underserved minorities and communities meet their home financing needs. This partnership will help us deliver on that commitment.”


To support this commitment, Chase has developed a new suite of customized loan products and services and launched a National Housing Advisory Council comprised of key national leaders from minority and under-served segments.


“We’re proud to have played a part in launching this program and look forward to working with Chase,” said Lori Jones Gibbs, Director of Affordable Housing/Emerging Markets for Genworth Financial’s mortgage insurance business and a member of Delta Sigma Theta. “As one of the nation’s leading mortgage insurers, we’re always looking for better ways to educate people on the home buying process so that they can break the rental cycle and start building equity through ownership.”


“Delta Sigma Theta has always been on the forefront of social change,” says Dr. Rice. “The change that is required of African American in the 21st century is wealth creation through homeownership---this partnership is a part of that journey.”

(BB91 comments: I hope as many of you as possible who live in the NY/NJ area will be able to come out. The topic seems ripe for discussion and I think Dr. Elders will have a lot of valuable insight.)

Sorority to hold tsunami fund-raiser tonight

Posted in the Greek Life forum as well.

Sorority to hold tsunami fund-raiser tonight

The members of Delta Sigma Theta are doing their part to promote international awareness by inviting UK students to help with tsunami relief.

The sorority will be hosting a benefit party tonight from 8 to midnight at The Stadium, a sports and arcade facility in Lexington, located at 412 Sporting Ct.

The Stadium is giving 25 percent of the night's total proceeds to the International Red Cross for tsunami victim relief funds. Delta Sigma Theta president and integrated strategic communication senior Krista Williams is hoping to raise at least $500.

Ashley Mitchell, a finance junior and member of Delta Sigma Theta, said UK students should attend the event because "a lot of people don't know how to give, or feel that a dollar isn't enough."

"(This event) gives them a chance to give back and have fun," Mitchell said. "Every little bit makes a difference."

Bowling, interactive arcade games, billiards, 3-on-3 basketball, laser tag, batting cages, a 36-foot-tall rock-climbing wall and big screen TVs are available at The Stadium.

Regular prices per activity apply. For example, bowling and laser tag are $5 per person and rock climbing prices range from $5 to $10.

"Even money spent in the food courts will go toward the effort," Mitchell said.

DJ Paradox, a.k.a. Bryan Rue, and Clear Channel radio will provide the music.

"Come support the sorority and tsunami relief while grooving to today's hottest music," said DJ Paradox.

There will be free second games given to the first 15 people to bowl. There will be other give-aways from The Stadium and Posh Salon.

Nicole McHam, a Stadium employee, said she hopes for a large turnout.

"[Students] can have a great time playing games and helping," said McHam.

She also hopes the night will better expose The Stadium and its offers to college students.

Student discounts are currently available at The Stadium for those with a valid UK ID.

Delta Sigma Theta event
When: 8 p.m. to midnight
Where: The Stadium.
Twenty-five percent of the night's total proceeds will to to the International Red Cross tsunami relief fund.

Don't know if this is appropriate for this thread, but there is a new Verizon Wireless commercial where there are girls stepping and a drumline playing. The girls stepping are members of the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of DST. For more info visit kappaepsilon.com.
