HPU Sorority Phi Mu Helps Raise Money For Children

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 4, 2010 ? High Point University?s chapter of Phi Mu sorority helped children across the nation by hosting a fundraising night at Feeney?s Frozen Yogurt Bar on Tues. Sept 28.

Phi Mu collected 10 percent of business proceeds from the night and raised nearly $200, which included donations from customers.

“Feeney’s was a great success,” says Emily Fatheree, Phi Mu’s philanthropy chair. “We received so much support from not only High Point University students, but also from Feeney’s amazing staff who contributed their time and donations to this wonderful cause.”
