Last week the ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha hosted New Member Lip Sync, their annual philanthropy event. This was a chance for fraternities and sororities to show off their new member classes while competing for a cause. The main purpose of this event was to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. All of the proceeds raised at the dance competition and the fundraisers held the week prior to Lip Sync go to Breast Cancer Awareness and Education.
Leading up to the main event, Zeta hosted their annual “Kiss Away Breast Cancer” in front of the student union where students were able to kiss the breast cancer banner and support the cause. For a $10 donation, students, faculty and friends received a “Do you pinky promise?” shirt adorning the famous pink ribbon. Another upcoming event dedicated to breast cancer is UCF’s Pink Out Game. Zeta will be selling $10 “think pink” tank tops for students to wear to the football game next Saturday. Proceeds will also be going towards the cause.
Previously New Member Lip Sync was held at The Venue, or old arena on campus. This year Lip Sync was held in the main arena making it possible for ten times the amount of people to attend compared to previous years. Attendance was free however there was a suggested $1 donation fee to see the new member classes compete for the best dance and help support the fight against breast cancer.
