Whether it's another sorority's or a fraternity's philanthropy, you will always see Alpha Phi at every event on campus. We support our Greek community wholeheartedly and every semester we donate our money, time, and effort to improving our community through philanthropy. In the past, Alpha Phi has hosted various philanthropies such as Cardiac Arrest, Karaoke PHI-ver, King of Hearts, and Phi Feud--but our two favorite and current philanthropies are Alpha Phifa and Red Dress Gala.
This past year, the Iota Lambda chapter raised over $8000 for the Alpha Phi Foundation, dedicated to research and treatment for cardiac care and heart disease. Iota Lambda also received the Excellence in Philanthropy Award at Northeast Regional Conference!
Red Dress Gala & Heart Health
This past spring Iota Lambda hosted our fifth annual Red Dress Gala. We invited parents, alumnae, faculty, staff, sisters and friends to join us for a dinner, dancing, cardiac health presentation, and silent auction. Our event was extremely successful and we raised over $8,000 for the Alpha Phi Foundation, benefitting women's cardiac care. We also host Heart Health Week, a week full of raising awareness about Women's Heart Health! Last year, we tabled in the student union, trained our sisters in hands only CPR, and handed out Valentine's Day goodie bags!

This past fall Alpha Phi UConn hosted our second annual Alpha Phifa! A soccer tournament consisting of over 40 teams! Megan worked very hard to organize and plan this, and it definitely paid off. We love this new philanthropy and will continue to make it a tradition.
We want to thank all the participants for all your help in raising awareness for Women's Cardiac Care and the Alpha Phi Foundation!
HuskyTHON is an 18 hour long dance marathon benefitting Connecticut Children's Medical Center. It is a huge event on campus and everyones favorite. Every year, all of Alpha Phi participates in HuskyTHON through being Miracle Walk models, dancers, volunteers, morale captains, or part of the management team. Alpha Phi LOVES HuskyTHON!
Throughout the semester Alpha Phis participate in all kinds of community service. We volunteer at the Hartford Heart Walk and cheer walkers on as they become more heart healthy! Sisters volunteer in UConn Jumpstart, UConn Connects, animal shelters, at nursing homes, medical missions, at pre-schools, and much more!
