Wing Ching Ching
Our chapter has hosted this philanthropy event for the last four years. Although it is a newer event, it attracts a large part of Drury's community. We serve chicken wings, side dishes, and beverages from restaurants all over Springfield and all donations/ticket sales benefit our local philanthropy. To add a little twist, we also host a side dish competition between fellow sororities, fraternities, and other organizations on campus. To round off the night, we have a chicken-wing-eating contest that is bound to bring on some laughs! This year instead of hosting it on campus, we did a benefit night at Buffalo Wild Wings!
Pie a Pi Phi
The Pi Beta Phi Friendship Fund seeks to ensure the future of the sisterhood by offering scholarships and aid to sisters in need. We support the Friendship Fund with our annual Pie a Pi Phi event, during which the community is invited to fling pies at their favorite Pi Phis! It's a great way to get messy and give back to our national sisterhood.
Lemonade for Literacy
This is an event that we hold on campus every year to give rise to children literacy problems. Every year, we sell lemonade outside of the Findlay Student Center on Drury's campus for $1. All of the money that we raise is donated to our philanthropic partner through the Pi Phi Foundation.
Puttin' on the Lips (POL)
In 2001, Pi Phi sister Andrea Newbold was killed by a drunk driver. In past years, funds raised from this competitive event have supported the Equi-Librium Therapy Center because Andrea was passionate about serving kids with autism. Now, this event supports children's literacy and Read > Lead > Achieve. Our annual lip-synching competition is consistently the most widely-attended philanthropy event on Drury's campus. In addition to raising awareness of childhood illiteracy, we strive to raise awareness of the dangers of drunk driving with this hugely popular event. POL is always a hit!
