SDT Greek Grind Raises More Than $100,000

Emma Murphy, choreographer and performer for AOPi says that her team felt confident, but shocked to win the competition. “We definitely weren’t expecting anything so that was a really big shock. We were kinda just on a high from performing and were having a great time. When they said ‘alpha,’ I was like, ‘is there another sorority that starts with…like could it be us?’ and so it was really exciting.”

Dancers spend months preparing for the competition to raise money for a cause. This year SDT raised more than one hundred thousand dollars for their national philanthropy Prevent Child Abuse America. The top three sororities of donations and participation receive a check donated to their national charity partner.

“Whatever we raise minus fifteen hundred dollars goes to Prevent Child Abuse America and that fifteen hundred dollars split up between seven hundred, five hundred, and three hundred goes to various charities,” says the event coordinator Brittany Paris.
