Knoxville (WVLT) -- The Knoxville chapter of a national sorority has donated several thousand dollars to charity.

It was all part of the Alpha Pi Omega foundation's 18th Annual Alfredda Delaney scholarship brunch.

Many community leaders including WNOX morning man Hallerin Hilton Hill were present for the event.

The foundation is the charitable wing of the city's chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.

Each year they donate scholarships to students and funds to local charities.

"Alpha Kappa Alpha will be celebrating 100 years of service in 2008,” said Ola Blackmon-McBride, president of the chapter. “We are about service and this allows us to impact our local community, the Knoxville community."

This year more than $13,000 was donated.

The recipients included seven students, Knoxville College, and the First Book literacy program.
