Welcome to Pi Phi Houston

Dear Sisters:

We are delighted to welcome you to an exciting year in the Houston Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club. While all the pillars of Pi Beta Phi are admirable, this year, we are focusing on sincere friendship. If you have been involved for years, want to get back involved, or are joining for the first time, we hope you will join us in the coming 2023–2024 year! Reach out to a Pi Phi friend and invite her to join us too.

Sisterhood and sincere friendship are the foundation of our Pi Phi experiences. As your co-presidents, we are excited to put together a year of fun and meaningful events. We will kick off the year with our general meeting in September and hear from stylist and Pi Phi Claudia Lederer Saenz, presenting fall fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue and Tootsies. We will get fun gift ideas at our Favorite Things evening event and enjoy some of our signature events such as Fratty Friends, the Christmas Tea, Pink Party, and Founders’ Day. Our fellow Pi Phi, Cindy Witmer, will keep us up-to-date with the latest in interior design, and we will enjoy an evening celebration with our friends at the Pi Phi/Kappa/Theta party.

Mark your calendars for our Houston Pi Beta Phi Foundation Literacy Luncheon at Houston Country Club on March 20. Nicole Eidman will lead her team to fundraise for our deserving philanthropies. And in addition to these events, don’t forget about all of the small group events, such as the junior group, Golden Arrows, Angels in Between, volunteering with literacy, Bible study, book club, and Pi Phi Stitchers.

We would love for you to join us. We have kept the dues simplified and streamlined. There is a one-time fee of $100 for all sisterhood events. There will be an additional fee for other events, such as the Pi Phi/Kappa/Theta party, the Literacy Luncheon fundraiser, Founders’ Day, and some small group events. You can pay on the Houston Alumnae Club website, or for members who would prefer to pay by paper check, you can download the dues form and mail it in with your check. As a paying dues member, you have access to the online member directory, but if you would like a printed directory, they are $20 each. Please pay your dues before September 12 so we can include you in the directory.

We are looking forward to a fabulous year enjoying our bond and putting Friendship First!

2023–2024 Co-presidents
