Members of Belmont’s Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) community raised $127,289 for St. Jude through their annual philanthropy event, Greek Sing, held in the Curb Event Center on Sunday, April 16.
An annual talent showcase for Belmont’s Greek community, Greek Sing features original dances and lyrics prepared months in advance by chapter members. The fundraising total exceeded previous totals by more than $100,000.
“Having Greek Sing back in the Curb was a huge inspiration to make it the best show possible,” Panhellenic Vice President of Philanthropy Allyne Miller said. “This was the first Greek Sing in the curb center since 2019. It was wonderful to work with Belmont in this way again and it really pushed me and my team to put on a show that was fit for the Curb.”
For the first time, the event was professionally live-streamed, allowing friends and family members to see the live show and contribute to the fundraiser as it was happening. The competition component of the event was reimplemented after five years without it. As chapters battled against each other to see who might raise the most money for St. Jude, the groups set a new standard for Belmont’s FSL and remained true to the philanthropic nature of the event.
“I could not be happier with the result of the event,” Miller added. “I am so proud of the Greek community and the work that they have put in. In my time at Belmont, I have never seen the student body come together in this way and knowing that I got to be a part of it is something I will treasure forever.”
Phi Mu took the lead, raising over $37,200 by the end of the evening. Closely behind, Alpha Sigma Tau raised over $36,400 and Alpha Gamma Delta raised over $31,300. Kappa Alpha Theta won Judges’ Choice for their “Mission Impossible” inspired performance, Theta:007. All proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the official philanthropy of Belmont’s Greek Life.
