Greek-letter organizations to hold charity week competitions

The Greek-letter community will hold its annual Greek Week from Nov. 4-11 to raise funds for the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.

During the week, GW’s Greek-letter organizations will compete to earn points in various contests, games and events in an effort to be crowned winner of the competition. This year’s theme, “Showdown in the District,” will feature western-style competitions and entertainment.

“This is an effort to bring Greek groups together as a community and be a morale booster,” said junior Jennifer Nedeau, vice president of public relations and marketing for the Panhellenic Association, the governing body for sororities.

“We hope to raise a lot of money for charity, as well as clothing and food,” Nedeau added.

Not only will sororities and fraternities be able to compete, but events are open to multicultural student organizations as well. The money earned from Greek Week events will go to an undecided charity benefiting Hurricane Katrina relief.
