About the Richmond Alumnae Chapter Fundraiser

For more than 10 years, the Richmond Alumnae Chapter has partnered with Carriage House Products each November to sell Cheese Straws as a chapter fundraiser. The money raised has enabled the Richmond chapter to host a wide variety of local events, such as the cocktail party, Easter egg hunt, prospective student parties, and intern dinners. In addition, a portion of the proceeds has been donated to the Virginia Lee Cox Blakely Scholarship at Hollins, which is a need-based scholarship for students from the Richmond area.
