Pi Phi Participates in Leukemia Walk + Supports Special Olympics SW

This past weekend, some sisters from the VA Zeta chapter of Pi Beta Phi participated in the "Leukemia Walk for a Cure" in Radford at Bisset Park. It was a lot of fun for sisters to get out of Blacksburg and give back, in collaboration with Delta Zeta sorority at Radford. 

Sisters were divided into teams of five and the amount of money per team all went towards Leukemia research. There was music, snack, the walk itself, bonding with sisters! Pi Phi was not only thrilled to represent our sorority outside of Blacksburg, but also to represent Virginia Tech as they went to Radford to support a great cause.

Some sisters also went to the "Special Olympics SW Regional Basketball Tournament at Virginia Tech" in Cassell Coliseum to cheer on participants! Pi Phi sisters made signs, got to see all of the action from the Special Olympics basketball tournament, and had a great time.

Pi Phi Spreads Love to New Members

Oak Lane has been extremely busy lately with the arrival of new members on bid day. Pi Beta Phi is so happy to have our new pledge class! We have been making opportunities for older members of our chapter to get to know our new members and have fun together!

On Monday the sisters of Pi Phi had a Valentine's Day Secret Gift Exchange with new members and active members alike. There was a chocolate fondue fountain, light refreshments, and lots of laughs. It was a great night of bonding and some girls revealed who they had gotten secret gifts for. This was a great way to get to know new members and just be silly with sisters.

It has already been a great semester for the sisters of Pi Beta Phi and we can't wait to participate in wonderful upcoming philanthropies with the Greek community, and gear up for our own Lilly Pulitzer sale this spring.

Happy Valentine's Day from the sisters of the VA Zeta chapter of Pi Beta Phi!
