Fraternity to dunk students, staff for charity

The Pi Kappa Phi fraternity will hold its second annual Dunkin’ for Disabilities philanthropy event Friday in Kogan Plaza from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students and faculty will have the chance to dunk well-known GW community members such as men’s basketball team players Mike Hall and J.R. Pinnock, Student Association President-elect Audai Shakour, Hatchet editor in chief-elect Michael Barnett and several fraternity and sorority presidents.

Students can pay $2 for one ball, $5 for 3 balls or $20 to walk up and hit the dunk tank’s target.

“We wanted to have a unique, fun event for the GW community,” Pi Kappa Phi member Ravi Alfreds said. “The weather has been really nice, and people should be out on Kogan.”

Last year, the fraternity raised about $500 through Dunkin’ for Disabilities for its national philanthropy, PUSH America, and hopes to equal or exceed that value this semester, Alfreds said.

“With this event hopefully we can reach a new record amount raised for the fraternity’s philanthropy,” Alfreds added.
