“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.”
