The Chicago Northwest Suburban Alumnae Panhellenic (CNWSAP) was recognized by the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) at their December meeting with a Programming Excellence Award. Kathi Heatherly, of the National Panhellenic Conference presented the national award. CNWSAP recently held their annual Stylin' for Scholars fundraising fashion show and grossed over $7,000. The event is held to raise money for five $1,200 scholarships which are awarded annually to area high school senior girls, as well as three $500 scholarships to college women previously considered for the scholarship, and now pledged to a NPC sorority. CNWSAP also participates in local philanthropies, such as Feed My Starving Children and family sponsorship through CEDA of Arlington Heights. In addition, CNWSAP provides a sorority recruitment information night in May for area high school girls to introduce them to the world of sorority life.
