Boston University αΚΔΦ Raised More Than $6,000 for AVON Breast Cancer Crusade
Boston University Associate Chapter had a very successful Breast Cancer Awareness month! Through the chapter’s fundraising page on AVON, series of aKDPhi-nd A Cure events throughout October, family, friends, and alumnae, they raised an astonishing amount of $6,144.46! Their most successful event was their 3rd Annual Mr. Pink: Pink is the New Black, which was their National Breast Cancer Awareness Day event. For this event, 10 Greek and non-Greek organizations from Boston University, Northeastern, Harvard, and MIT participated as contestants. These contestants participated in three rounds – personality round, talent round, and breast cancer trivia round – to gain points to become the next Mr. Pink. In the end, Boston University’s Asian Student Union, Brandon Koh, was given the title of Mr. Pink! They also had numerous sponsors for this event and had an attendance of over 300 people! In this event alone, they raised over $2,700 from date auctions, raffles, and donations. This was their most successful Breast Cancer Awareness month thus far and they aim to make it even better next year.
UW Pi Chapter Hosts 17th Annual Boobie Beats
UW Pi Chapter's 17th annual Boobie Beats took place on Friday, October 24th as a way to wrap up their Breast Cancer Awareness Week. Boobie Beats has been known campus-wide for the past seventeen years as a showcase featuring local and campus talent with all funds exclusively dedicated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. This year, the show featured performers from Lambda Phi Epsilon, Chinese Student Association, an amazing a capella group featuring active Teos Bisbee, and a duet with a brother from Pi Alpha Phi and President Trina Buiquy. The headliner of the night was YouTube sensation Jessica Domingo. Music aside, the night also included an eye-opening and inspiring call-for-action speech from an Avon speaker.
The actives of Pi Chapter also put together an appealing and exciting raffle featuring prizes such as restaurant gift cards, interior decor items, Victoria's Secret and Google products. During intermission, two members of each of the external organizations present were welcomed backstage to partake in a bra decorating competition!
With the proceeds of the night and the month combined, University of Washington Pi Chapter has been able to generate a rough total of $3,000 of funds for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, doubling the amount raised last year.
