Phi is Philanthropy – Spring 2011 Update

Jon Bernard '08 April 25, 2011 Chapter News, Philanthropy, The Phoenix

It’s been an excellent year of charity for the brothers of Phi Kappa Tau Phi Chapter. The election of Brother Scotty Tyree as the new Philanthropy Chair has led to several successful trips to local animal shelters and soup kitchens as well as a rise in campus presence for the fraternity.

This year’s Spaghetti Dinner brought in $415 and served people from every walk of life on this campus. Independents and Greeks alike enjoyed delicious food while putting up money for a good cause.

Phi Chapter hosted a movie night in Renner Too in the bottom of Phillips. Enjoying popcorn and beverages, guests watched our hall of fame Alumnus Paul Newman’s famous comedy “Slapshot” and got the opportunity to donate to Hole in the Wall Gang Camps. But the successes don’t end there.

The highlight of this semester has been the Phi Kappa Tau Clothing drive. In honor of March’s Founders Month of Service, the brothers of Phi Chapter collected over 1,000lbs of clothing for the local homeless- with donations still coming through the door!

This semester’s philanthropy events have been amazing, and plans for next semester are even bigger. Stay tuned!
