It is an event created to provide financial support the March of Dimes, an organization that works tirelessly to help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies. The purpose of the event is not only to foster sisterhood in an enjoyable activity for the community – but more importantly, to raise awareness for prematurity – something that affects far too many families, especially African Americans. According to the March of Dimes:
· 1 in 8 babies is born prematurely are born prematurely in the US; 40% of the time the cause is unknown
· More than 120,000 babies are born with a birth defect; the cause is unknown in 70% of cases
· Worldwide, 13 million babies are born prematurely
Since 1971, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has enjoyed a partnership with the March of Dimes in an effort to encourage women to seek prenatal care within the first trimester of pregnancy, thereby increasing the prevention of birth defects and infant mortality.
Allows members of Zeta Phi Beta to identify low performing schools and provide assistance in a number of ways to enhance the educational experience, increase test scores and grades. Members purchase supplies and/or equipment, provide volunteer hours, assist with parent engagement programs and work with administrators to identify needs that may be specific to that particular school

It is a comprehensive program that also focuses on elder abuse awareness, financial peace, supporting the caregiver and volunteering at senior care facilities.
