In addition to the silent and live auctions, the evening will consist of a cocktail social and light hors d'oeuvres. All proceeds from the evening will support the Alpha Phi Foundation, which supports research of Women’s Heart Health and the American Heart Association. We invite you to wear red or add a red accent to your attire. Red will be admired, but not required.

The women of Alpha Phi Sorority have sold more than 600 tickets for the event. Tickets may be purchased online at and search for Alpha Phi-South Dakota Red Dress Gala 2014. Cost at the door is $25 for adults and $15 for students; and $40 for two adult tickets (pre-sale only).

Alpha Phi was founded at Syracuse University in 1872 as one of the first Greek societies for women. Alpha Phi is dedicated to promoting sisterhood, cultivating leadership, encouraging intellectual curiosity, and advocating service. The organization is comprised of more than 150 collegiate chapters and more than 130 alumnae chapters throughout the United States and Canada. The Alpha Phi Foundation is the organization's philanthropic and educational partner. Through contributions from chapters, individual members and friends, the foundation supports women’s cardiac health and other charitable and educational projects. Proceeds from Red Dress Gala events will go directly to the Alpha Phi Foundation to support causes that raise awareness of and fund research for women’s heart health.
