 Lift Off to Planet AKArama 2017


It’s coming…get ready for AKArama 2017 “Lift off to Planet AKArama.”

Members, you are invited to enjoy an elegant evening at this spectacular gala on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The out of this world experience will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, East Tower, Grand Ballroom, 151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois. This year’s theme is inspired by the movie “Hidden Figures” and promises to be an evening of great music, wonderful entertainment and vibrant art from local talents.

Three brilliant Alpha Kappa Alpha women: Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson working at NASA in 1961 impacted history and were the brains behind the successful launch of man and machine into outer space!

Donations raised from our annual AKArama can provide educational opportunities for African American students to walk in the path of these great women and further impact community programs and organizations that make a difference in the lives of others.  Let’s make this year’s event another success! Invite your friends, family and coworkers out for an evening of dining and entertainment! Be inspired and encouraged by the Sorors of our great sisterhood that through commitment and dedication broke barriers sending man and machine into space. I look forward to seeing you all at this year’s event “Lift off to Planet AKArama.”
