Representatives from Zeta Phi Beta and Phi Beta Sigma demonstrated a short

step show during the second annual progressive picnic hosted by

Panhellenic Council on Tuesday evening.



The Panhellenic Council hosted its second annual progressive picnic on

Tuesday, April 27. Each Panhellenic participant was required to bring a

dollar donation or an article of clothing in order to be admitted for the

first annual Goodwill Material Drive.

Each suite in Panhellenic offered a side dish or dessert for the picnic.

The participants traveled to each suite in order to get a different part of

the meal. Subway sandwiches were also provided in the multi-purpose room of

the Panhellenic Building.

Clothes donated for the event will be sold in different stores around the

community. Revenue from the sale of donated items will support Goodwill's

Employment and Training Programs for people with disabilities.

"This is the first year for the clothing drive and we are very excited. We

would like to continue to do this each year," Katy Bland, a representative

from Goodwill, said.

The clothing drive is a campus wide event. Bins will be available in five

different locations around campus. Any donations such as clothing, small

appliances and linens can be placed in bins located at Massey, Greve,

Presidential Courtyard, Fraternity Park and College Park until Friday,

April 30.

"Panhellenic is thrilled about helping Goodwill while promoting chapter

unity at the picnic," Amy Breckenridge, who was in charge of the clothing

drive, said.

Kelly Morgan Phillips, Panhellenic adviser, added, "Service is continuing

to be a forefront of sororities."

100.3 FM was also present at the picnic. The radio station donated air time

and a live remote, as well as door prizes for the clothing drive. Goodwill

also donated door prizes from around the community. The prizes included

CDs, T-shirts and bumper stickers.

To further Greek unity, the Black Greek Letter Organization (BGLO) shared

facts about a few of their organizations.

Alpha Kappa Alpha, Zeta Phi Beta and Phi Beta Sigma were the BGLO groups

present at the picnic. Representatives of Zeta Phi Beta and their brother

fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma, presented a short step exhibition while

involving the crowd in the demonstration.

Brandye Collins, the Vice President of the BGLO, said,"We wanted to

incorporate the National Panhellenic Council (NPC) and the BGLO at the

picnic in order to unify the two groups."

Brandi Wilson, president of Panhellenic, was pleased with the success of

the event.

"This is the second year we have had the progressive picnic, and we only

hope that we can do this every spring."
