Greek Week Benefits Community

09.27.2012

High Point University's Greek Week event, Bowl for Kids' SakeHIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 27, 2012 – High Point University students raised more than $3,000 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Central Piedmont and donated 213 pints of blood as part of Greek Week, held Sept. 10-15.

The university’s 16 Greek organizations participated this year and each team was challenged with raising $500. Philanthropy events included “Dash in the Dark,” a 5k race, and “Bowl for Kids’ Sake,” a bowling event in support of Big Brothers and Big Sisters, which concluded the week’s fundraising.

“I am thrilled at the success of the Bowl for Kids’ Sake event during Greek Week,” says Teri Cugliari director of Greek life in the office of student life. “Each of our teams met the challenge of raising $500, and some exceeded that goal by as much as $300 dollars. As a community, it is important to remember to give back, and our Greeks have really made an effort to include philanthropy and service as part of Greek Week. I’m very proud of them!”

Almost 600 shirts were also donated to a person in need in Uganda through Bamboo Apparel, a business started by alumnus Seth Gold. The business donates a shirt to someone in need for every t-shirt it sells.
