HIGH POINT, N.C., March 28, 2013 – Members of the Phi Mu sorority at High Point University recently held their sixth annual Hoop-A-Palooza event, which raised more than $1,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, specifically Duke Children’s Hospital.
The event consisted of a number of different activities over three days that ranged from a basketball tournament to a trunk sale partnered with local retailers, including All that JAS, Cookie Lee Jewelry, Vineyard Vines, Pura Vida and Lilly Pulitzer merchandise from The Island in New York. The sorority also partnered with Beta Theta Pi fraternity in a hot dog and burrito sale; the groups split the proceeds.
Sorority members also note that they could not be more pleased with the partnership that they have formed with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“Our sorority is honored to help a foundation like Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” says Madi Franz, philanthropy co-chair for Phi Mu. “It is especially close to our hearts because of the support some of our sisters have received from the organization. We are also thankful for the extraordinary support from the High Point community.”
