Chapter Cheers: Holiday Edition

Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. ET
Register to receive a Hokie cookie stencil and a link to join our virtual holiday party. 

Join us for a special holiday edition of Chapter Cheers for fun, food, and holiday hosting tips.

Registration will support The Market of Virginia Tech and when you sign up to join us you'll also receive a Hokie stencil, perfect for holiday baking and spreading delicious holiday cheer.

Sign on to the virtual event to enjoy time with fellow Hokies and festive holiday how-tos, or watch on-demand later. 

We'll be joined by Hokie alumnae Taylor Cupp, owner of T. Cupp Cookies, and Barbara Leshyn, a floral design instructor. Cupp will share her baking advice and cookie decorating tips and Leshyn will share how-tos on creating a festive holiday centerpiece. 

Supporting The Market at Virginia Tech

The Market of Virginia Tech provides healthy, nutritious, locally-sourced food to Hokie students in need. Your Chapter Cheers registration supports The Market and you can choose to give above the registration fee to help more students. 

It costs $30 to provide a week’s worth of food to a Hokie served by The Market of Virginia Tech. Whatever you can give will make an impact. 

The Market was made possible by the generosity of Virginia Tech alumni, Hema and Mehul Sanghani. With their support, the university launched the innovative program to enhance food access for students. Unlike a typical food pantry, The Market provides fresh meat, dairy, and produce to up to 75 students each week on the Blacksburg campus.


Registration is $5 and supports The Market at Virginia Tech. When you sign up you'll recieve a Hokie stencil that can be used for holiday baking.
