Greek Sing, an event held at the end of Greek Week, is a competition where various chapters gather in teams and perform popular songs before a live audience of their peers. Chapters win by a combination of competition points and points based on fundraising totals. Chapters raise money through fundraisers and donations.

Last year, Greek Sing and Greek Week raised more than $70,000, according to Greek Sing co-chair Dustin Jones.

Jones, a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity, has been involved with Greek Sing for three years and is currently serving his second year as chair of the event. What’s his favorite moment through all of the songs, dancing and competitions? Getting to deliver the money raised.

“Handing over the check to the Valley of the Sun United Way at the end of Greek Week last year was special,” Jones said. “It was the finale of months of effort summed up to one moment.”

More than half of the 75 chapters in ASU’s Greek community are singing their hearts out this year. The collaboration between different social, professional, cultural and other Greek organizations is what separates Greek Sing from other philanthropic events, according to co-chair Paris Major, a member of Delta Gamma sorority.

“Greek Week is an amazing time where the many different chapters on campus come together to build relations and promote Greek unity all while participating in community service and supporting a cause that is bigger than ourselves,” Major said.

This year’s Greek Sing will be held at Gammage Auditorium on April 15. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and performances start at 6 p.m. For more information, contact greeklife@asu.edu.
