from the heart, for the heart
RED DRESS GALA
In 2019, the Red Dress Gala was a huge success! On September 21, Gamma Phi hosted its 9th annual Red Dress Gala. Red Dress Gala is Alpha Phi’s silent and live auction philanthropy. Families, friends, and alumni were invited to spend an elegant evening of dining, laughing, and dancing held during FSU’s Parents Weekend. Once the silent auction and dinner has concluded, the live auction takes place and paddles go up while guests begin biding for prizes such as weekend trips, football game tickets, or week long vacations at beach villas. Proceeds from Red Dress Gala go to the Alpha Phi Foundation and Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our members, $32,000 was raised!
Alpha Phi hosts Heart Week to promote awareness of women’s heart disease through CPR certification, heart healthy activities such as Zumba or yoga, and fundraisers. Mac N' Phis and Alpha Phreeze, All-You-Can-Eat philanthropic dinners are held and open to anyone in the Tallahassee Community! Alpha Phi passionately works hard in the hopes of improving heart health for everyone.
MR. HEART THROB
In the beginning of 2020 we had our first annual sweetheart competition, Mr. Heart Throb. This event is a male pageant competition (parody to Miss America) that we hold in the spring semester. Many of the contestants running for the title of Mr. Heart Throb are from all different organizations whether it be Greek life, the athletic department, or independently. There are a range of categories that each contestant competes in such as; Introductions, Talent, and Interview. It's great to see the outcome of this chapter's hard work, dedication, and effort to make this race such a success!
