Zeta Omega Collaboration

The Pearls of Hope Foundation, Inc is the charitable arm for Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Soroity, Inc. In support of this partnership, Zeta Omega has collaborated with Pearls of Hope Foundation in support of the following projects:

Arts Awareness:
Zeta Omega is committed to introducing and promoting the performing arts which includes music, drama, film, dance and related media. For 25 years, Zeta Omega has hosted events to allow members of the greater Wilmington community to enjoy performances in New York on Broadway, shows at local Wilmington theaters as well as activities throughout the tri-state areas. These shows include all of August Wilson's productions with the most recent being the The Piano Lesson. Pearls of Hope Foundation is delighted to support the arts.

Debutante Academic Scholarships and Book Awards:
For sixty years, Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated proudly hosts an annual Debutante Ball. The Debutante Ball is the culmination of a year long program for young ladies with the following goals:

1) To encourage, strengthen and recognize educational, cultural and social development of high school young ladies through workshops, community involvement, the Arts, and a formal Ball,

2) To promote high ethical standards, unity and friendship,

3) To reinforce positive values, ethics and life skills learned from life experiences,

4) To introduce new thoughts and ideas, which prepare the young ladies for assimilation into a diverse society..

In keeping with Alpha Kappa Alpha’s purpose of “cultivation and encouraging high scholastic standards”, the Zeta Omega Chapter has, through the years, provided scholarships and awards to deserving area youth. Since 1996, Zeta Omega Chapter has award more than $200,000 in academic scholarships and book awards. Scholarship monies are raised through the solicitation of advertisements from businesses and individuals throughout the community and these ads are placed in the Annual Debutante Souvenir Booklet. Pearls of Hope Foundation is pleased to partner with Zeta Omega Chapter in obtaining ads and producing the annual Debutante Souvenir Booklet.

Pink on the Green Golf Classic:
In 2008, Zeta Omega Chaper of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc and Pearls of Hope Foundation, Inc. successfully hosted the first biennial tennis classic which was appropriately called Pink on the Green Golf Classic. The next tennis classic will take place in the Spring of 2010. This website will be updated with additional detail.

Sickle Cell Tennis Classic:
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Zeta Omega Chapter and the Pearls of Hope Foundation, Inc. are hosting the 31st Annual Sickle Cell Tennis Classic. Both organizations are pleased to host the Classic again this year.

Our organizations partner with Alfred I. duPont Hospital's sickle cell program and donate the funds raised through the Classic to this effort. Over $203,000 has been donated since the inception of the Tennis Classic. Zeta Omega and Pearls of Hope are pleased to assist a local sickle cell program. Although a cure has not been found, new therapy and heightened awareness of the disease continues to improve the maintenance of the condition for those affected by the disease.

We appreciate those that support amateur tennis in the Delaware Valley while supporting the fight against sickle cell disease. For additional information and to learn how you can become a sponsor of this event, please visit http://www.sctennistournament.org/Host.asp
