2013 Women of the Year

Women of the Year Luncheon

Started in 2008, this luncheon serves as an annual re-commitment to our goals of serving the Tulsa community through fund raising and philanthropy.

Each of our member groups names an alumna to represent the sorority and honor the spirit of sisterhood. This celebration benefits TAAP’s scholarships, and the Tulsa Public Schools’ Eyeglass Fund.

Throughout TAAP’s history, philanthropy has been a centerpiece of its activities. When the group began with 14 members in 1916, volunteers raised money for the Red Cross, YWCA scholarships and free ambulance service for children with tuberculosis.  TAAP supported hospitals and schools during the Great Depression and bought war bonds during World War II. Eye glass purchases began in 1936 with regular contributions beginning in 1953. The scholarship program began in 1962. Since 1967, scholarships and the eyeglass fund have been our two philanthropies.


2013 Theme - "Rush Through the Decades"

 Gives us the opportunity to highlight the strength we gain in friendships formed at the collegiate level, nurtured through alumnae groups and enhanced in the broader spectrum of Panhellenic.
