RED DRESS GALA
Once a year, we hold our annual Red Dress Gala. The gala serves as one of our major fundraising events for the Alpha Phi Foundation! Money is raised through our red dress brunch and silent auction. Past items auctioned off include a David Yurman bracelet, several vacation home getaways, Tory Burch purse, VI-PHI Parking Spot at the lodge, and various fun themed gift baskets. At Red Dress Gala, members wear red dresses in support of cardiac care. Boasting attendance of over 500 people, Red Dress Gala is a staple event in Lubbock. The past two years we have raised over $25,000 to continue raising money for a cause to live for!
TASTE OF TEXAS
Taste of Texas is one of our newest and biggest annual philanthropy events. We ask local food trucks to come out and participate in our event. We also bring out well-known country artists such as Parker McCollum, Curtis Grimes, and Dalton Domino. We even had a special guest appearance from ABC's "The Bachelorette," James Taylor. Many people from the Tech community come out and enjoy sweets and treats while two-stepping the night away!
Alpha Phifa is our annual spring philanthropy soccer tournament. We invite all students to come out and play for our philanthropy raising awareness for heart health. We just hosted our third tournament, and with 33 teams we were able to raise $2,091 for our Foundation! We congratulate the winners of this year's tournament, Texas Tech Men's Club Soccer Team, for their second win (2019). As well as well as our winners Delta Tau Delta (2018).
MAC N PHIS
Last year, we held our first Mac N Phis philanthropy event. We were able to make it a grab-and-go event and have pre-packaged macaroni and cheese to comply with COVID-19 protocol. We were so happy to be able to hold a philanthropy event and raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation during this difficult ime.
