Eta Chi Chapter (Texas Christian) ends philanthropy week on high note

Pi Kapp hosted its annual philanthropy week this week that benefits The Ability Experience, an organization which raises awareness about people with disabilities. Sophomore Pi Kappa Phi member Michael McCluskey spoke about the importance of the philanthropy to his chapter.

“The Ability Experience is a central tenet in our organization,” McCluskey said. “It influences how we do a lot of the things that we do and it helps us conduct ourselves in the way that we do.”

The events throughout the week included a 24-hr bike marathon, a penny collection contest and a fundraiser at Potbelly Sandwich Shop. The week ended with a singing competition in the Campus Commons between sororities. Each sorority performed shorts songs about The Ability Experience.

Alpha Chi Omega coach Heather Binder said she enjoyed being able to take part in the events throughout the week.

“I love how involved Pi Kapp is with their philanthropy and it was really great being able to participate in the competition,” Binder said.

Winners were announced at the end of the night. Zeta Tau Alpha remained the reigning champion, winning the overall participation category for the seventh year in a row.
