Greek Sing 2021 raises over $92,000 for Lee County’s Habitat for Humanity
Greek Life’s Panhellenic Council hosted its annual Greek Sing event that raises funds for Lee County’s Habitat for Humanity, and this year $92,285.60 was raised. Greek Sing is a choreographed dance competition that brings together all 18 Panhellenic sororities and takes place each spring at Auburn Arena. Prior to the annual event, Panhellenic sororities fundraise and participate in habitat build days.
Fundraising efforts include selling T-shirts, attending benefit nights at local restaurants, selling event tickets and through online fundraising. The habitat build days allow hands-on experience for Panhellenic sorority members as they help build homes for community members.
While Auburn Arena was not filled with entire chapters, alumni, students and families this year due to COVID-19 guidelines, there were 1,000 audience members in attendance. With reduced capacity in place, the Greek Life Office ensured those that were unable to attend in person would still be able to enjoy Greek Sing by offering a live stream of the event.
According to Greek Life Coordinator Lindsay Holdren, there were 982 live stream viewers with many chapters hosting watch parties in their chapter rooms.
Even though Greek Sing looked different, which included masked performances and extra sanitization protocols, the Greek Life office made a successful event possible.
“Greek Life takes pride in being able to offer vibrant, exciting and engaging student events throughout the year,” Holdren said. “Being able to host events, such as Greek Sing, remind our office of our commitment to enhance the student experience.”
