July 21, 2014, Prince William, VA–The ladies of the Prince William Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated will host their third annual Crab Feast Fundraiser on Saturday, August 16 from 3 to 8 p.m. at the VFW in Dale City.

Tickets are available on line at www.pwcacdst.org.

All the proceeds from this event will go to the Chapter’s scholarship and public service fund. In 2013 the Prince William County Alumnae Chapter in conjunction with the Delta Education & Public Service Foundation presented five scholarships to local high school seniors, which totaled $16,000.00. This included a $2,000 a year four year sustaining scholarship in memory of one of the chapter’s trailblazers. This year the chapter awarded six scholarships in addition to the $2,000 sustaining scholarship.
The Prince William County Alumnae Chapter (PWCAC) may best be known in the community for its Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Oratorical Contest held on Dr. King’s holiday each year at the Hylton Chapel, or, it’s annual Senior Citizen’s luncheon. However, PWCAC host a legion of programs and public service activities in the community.
Most recently the Chapter partnered with The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to host an Affordable Healthcare seminar titled “Get Covered Day”. This event provided information on the health insurance marketplace along with enrollment assistance. This activity resulted in education and enrollment assistance to 31 Prince William County residents to the Health Insurance Marketplace under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) before the 31 March deadline. Comments such as, “As a 35 year old man, this is the first time that I’ve had health insurance in my life,” and “I am extremely grateful to be able to come here and sign up,” highlight the value the program PWCAC hosted.
