According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 15 million babies are born prematurely each year. Tri Sigma’s philanthropy, The March of Dimes, works to improve the health of mothers and babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Tri Sigma’s Community Easter Egg Hunt is a way for members of the community to aid in this cause.

Kelli Morgan, Tri Sigma fundraising co-chair, said her passion for her organization’s philanthropy comes from a personal place.

“I am passionate about our philanthropy because my family has been affected by infant mortality due to premature birth,” said Morgan. “I want to help raise money and awareness so we can help mothers and babies everywhere.”

Morgan and Alondra Bustamante, Tri Sigma fundraising co-chair, said their goal for the community Easter egg hunt is to create a fun event that will give Tahlequah community members a better understanding of who Tri Sigma is and what their purpose on NSU’s campus is.

Lauren McFarland, Tri Sigma treasurer, is the officer over Bustamante and Morgan’s fundraising chair. McFarland gave more insight on Tri Sigma’s purpose.

“It’s getting to help innocent little kids who, of no fault of their own, are sick and fighting for their lives,” said McFarland. “Every kid deserves to play on the playground, go to birthday parties or play sports but some can’t do so. Tri Sigma is able to raise money to help put a smile on the kids who can’t do these things. It’s amazing to see what a difference one sorority can make.”

Bustamante added to McFarland’s statement by saying Tri Sigma is more than a sisterhood that shares the same letters. Bustamante said Tri Sigma’s purpose is empowering others and helping others with greater causes than their own. Bustamante hopes the community Easter egg hunt will bring members of the community together.

Bustamante and Morgan have worked together coordinating the egg hunt and planning events that would be exciting for all participants.

“Kelli has been great with coming up with ideas for this event,” said Bustamante.

Tri sigma will have an assortment of events for the community to participate in. Events such as hopscotch, pass the egg, egg toss and an Easter egg hunt. The participant that collects the most eggs will win a prize. Tri Sigma will also provide food and have a face painting station set up for the community to utilize.

The admission cost is $5 for children 11 and under. This event will be at 5 p.m., March 29 on Beta Field. Beta Field is located next to the President’s house on the Tahlequah campus.
