TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — TROY’s Alpha Delta Pi (ADPi) hosted a lip sync battle for its Philanthropy Week where sororities and fraternities could show off their skills.
“All the participants are from each sorority and fraternity here at Troy University,” said ADPi sister Brooklynn Bailey. “It’s just a friendly competition to help raise money for our philanthropy.”
This event served as a fundraiser for ADPi to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
“Ronald McDonald House Charities is a place where families can stay when they have sick children in the hospital,” Bailey said. “It gives them that home away from home feeling and helps them save money so they’re not continuously driving back and forth between their house and the hospital or staying at a hotel.”
The sisters of ADPi say that it is important to extend a helping hand to those in need.
“We feel it’s really important to make sure that children are taken care of and we focus so much on that,” Bailey explained. “What I personally love about the Ronald McDonald House Charities is that we get to personally help these families. They aren’t able to be with their children a lot so it’s really nice to help take care of financial problems and things that they might have so they can focus on their child instead of worrying about things like that.”
ADPi still has a few more events to come as it wrap up its Philanthropy Week.
“This is our main event, but we still have some spirit nights going on this week,” Bailey said. “We have one tomorrow at Echo and another one on Saturday at Confetti Crate. We also have a pop-up shop on Friday if anyone wants to come.”
