Circle of Sisterhood Week Recap

The UT Panhellenic community hosted their 3rd annual Circle of Sisterhood week March 6th through March 9th. Throughout the week there was an ongoing coin jar fundraiser and book drive, Circle of Sisterhood bookmarks and pins distributed on Pedestrian Walkway, a Half the Sky documentary showing, food trucks, a two-day bake sale, and the 5th annual Greek Beat dance competition! As the week went on there was tremendous participation and involvement from the Panhellenic and campus community! There were 35 girls who volunteered with Boys and Girls Club after school programs, 100 people donated dozens of baked goods for our bake sale, over 300 attended the documentary showing, and 523 books were donated! Maybe most exciting to share is that in just four short days our community raised $13,307.46 all for Circle of Sisterhood! In addition, the night of Greek Beat, Vice President of Philanthropy & Community Service for the Panhellenic Council, Betsy Pierce signed a letter of intent to Circle of Sisterhood to start fundraising for a second school build! This makes University of Tennessee one of the first Panhellenic communities in the country to do this and it is something we are all very proud and excited about! It takes $40,000 to fund a school build so we are very excited to already be over a quarter of the way to raising that number and building a new school in a well-deserving community!
