Silent Disco raises money for Children’s of Alabama

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — TROY’s Phi Mu sorority turned down the lights and turned up the music, but not in the way you would expect.

Thursday night, instead of blaring speakers filled with loud music, party goers danced in silence while wearing headphones and listening to their preferred music.

“I think it’s so cool because everyone can listen to their own song and just have a good time,” student Lane Cole said.

Students listened as their favorite genres of music, courtesy of DJ Frosty, played through their headphones. However, the silent disco was more than just a college party.

“It’s going to be a good way to get all the sororities and fraternities and anybody just in Troy, and not even necessarily in Greek life, just around here to come out and have fun and support a good cause,” said Phi Mu member Anne-Scott Romanowski.

That good cause was raising money for Children’s of Alabama.

“It [money] goes to families and need like children that have different diseases such as like cancer and different things like that,” Romanowski told TrojanVision. “All the money is going to them and just to help the families with like the bills for the hospital and all that.”
