The Fall was a productive semester for Lambda Phi Epsilon, University of Virgina Associate Chapter. From the chapter’s prolific philanthropic activity to active participation in the Asian American Community, Lambdas at UVA have been proactively making an positive impact on both the community at the University of Virginia and Charlottesviles. Check out highlights from our fall semester below!
In collaboration with Asian Student Union and Chinese Student Association at UVa, the Lambdas at Uva hosted a paint-based dodegeball style tournament for Be the Match. The event was able to raise over $500 for Be the Match, and 16 individuals registered to be bone marrow donors at the event!
Cohosted with the Chinese Student Association at UVA, Lambda Phi Epsilon socialized with and supported other organization in this event celebrating the Mid-Autum Festival. The brothers performed in various performances and set up a booth where eventgoers tested their dexterity by moving as many jellybeans from one plate to another with chopsticks under a time limit.
Stadium Clean Up:
Lambda Phi Epsilon participated in a University sponsored fundraising program in which brothers helped clean up the Scott Arena Football Statium at the University of Virginia after a football game.
Walk for Alzheimer’s:
The brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon volunteered at a local Walk to End Alzheimer’s to help raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The actives helped set up walk markers, directed participants through the streets of Downtown Charlottesville in the rain and helped clean after the event finished.
Coach London Donation:
For our prodigous efforts for Lambda Phi Epsilon’s philanthropy, Be the Match, UVa’s football coach, Mike London bestowed on UVa’s Lambda Phi Epsilon a $500 donation for the organization at Virginia’s Homecoming: Cavalier Cookout! The house is honored by the recognition by the University, and will strive to continue serving our community.
Go Global Expo:
A huge cultural performance showcase, Go Global was a opportunity for the Asian American Community to come together and present everything our culture has to offer to the greater University of Virginia community. Lambda Phi Epsilon took this opportunity to showcase Stepping and Strolling, an integral component to the culture of Asian American Greeks.
Drumstick Dash 8K:
The brothers of UVa Lambda Phi Epsilon, along with the brothers of Virginia Commonwealth University and James Madison University LPhiE stepped up to volunteer at a joint service event that the sisters of VCU Kappa Delta Phi put together early in the morning. We were volunteers at water stations for a 8K race to help the Housing and Community Services of Northern Virginia.
