Children's Opportunity Group - Epsilon Sigma Alpha
How We Began
Children's Opportunity Group was founded in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1949, under the name of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a national social sorority. This small group of 25 women wanted to focus strictly on serving the needy children of Broward County. These ladies raised money for the community through the proceeds they made on luncheons and various fundraisers. In 1955, they decided to break away from Epsilon Sigma Alpha and give themselves a new name, Children's Opportunity Group or COG.
Who We Are Today
To date, Children's Opportunity Group keeps its membership to 50 women who still meet in each other's homes on a monthly basis. We still work to raise money in support of needy children. Our annual luncheon is the main source of funds enabling us to reach out to Broward's youngest citizens.
