Alpha Xi Delta Introduces Shining Star Program

Monday, May 15, 2017 9:00 am

 Indianapolis, IN –The Alpha Xi Delta Foundation has launched the 2017 Shining Stars program in honor of the Fraternity’s National Convention.

The Shining Stars program allows you to honor those individuals in your life who have inspired you to realize their potential.   Each Shining Star is $10.  Shining Stars can be ordered online beginning May 15 and at the Shining Stars table during National Convention in Chicago, Illinois, July 5-9, 2017.  Stars will be delivered to honorees attending Convention so they can display their Shining Stars on their name badges.  All honorees, regardless of Convention attendance, will receive an email after Convention to let them know that a gift to the Foundation has been made in their honor and their name was displayed in the Shining Star GalaxXi at this year’s National Convention. 

Shining Stars is a great way to meet new Sisters – put yourself out there and get to know someone new. Or maybe honor an advisor or an alumna from your Chapter or a sister you met at Area Wide Training. Use the Stars as a chance to reconnect. Use them as recognition for big ideas and for small ones. ~ Becky Perrett, Nebraska-Lincoln ’96

The Shining Star program was introduced in 2007 at Alpha Xi Delta’s National Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was designed as an opportunity to show gratitude and recognize inspiring Sisters while supporting the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation. Your gifts help the Foundation fulfill its mission of supporting the Fraternity’s educational and leadership development programs; providing and continuing to expand scholarships, grants and member-support funds; and encouraging philanthropy.
