Gamma Phi Beta, Heartspring team up for grilled cheese fundraiser
WICHITA, Kan. –On April 17 and 18, the Wichita State University chapter of Gamma Phi Beta will be hosting their annual Grilled Cheese with GPhiB Fundraiser at the Gamma Phi Beta house (3912 E 21st St N Apt 20). The funds raised go to Heartspring’s Autism Services program.
“Gamma Phi Beta’s philanthropic focus is ‘building strong girls,’” Olivia Babin, Gamma Phi Beta Philanthropy Chairwoman, said. “In the Wichita State Chapter, we believe that means more than just empowering women, we believe it is building strong people. Heartspring is an amazing organization that builds strong people every single day. We believe in the importance of individualized care especially for those impacted by autism since it affects everyone differently. Heartspring shows people they are capable of anything. What better way to build strong people than that?"
On April 17 (10a.m. -1 p.m. and 5p.m.-8 p.m.) and April 18 (10 a.m.-1 p.m., 4 p.m.- 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.-11 p.m.) guests will be able to buy grilled cheese and soup to support Heartspring. The cost is $5 ahead of time and $7 at the door.
“We are grateful to Gamma Phi Beta for all the hard work they put into this event,” Stacie Williamson, Director of Development at Heartspring, said. “It is amazing to see these young women come together and support the children Heartspring serves. Their time, effort and dedication truly make a difference.”
In addition to the meal, there will also be a raffle.
