On February 27 – 28, 2013 the Greek Community at Sacred Heart University is going back in time to relive our childhood in order to give back to today’s youth through our second annual fundraising project, Greek Life Goes Back to Give Back. We are holding a 24-hour See-Saw-A-Thon in which each sorority and fraternity on campus will keep multiple see-saws occupied for 24-hours. In addition, there will be a number of different playground games, music, and entertainment in which we invite the campus and community to participate.
The funds raised through Greek Life Goes Back to Give Back will go directly to a new playground for the Six to Six Interdistrict Magnet School of Bridgeport, Connecticut. The PTSA at Six to Six has been working to raise funds to replace the school’s deteriorating wooden playground since September 2010. The Sacred Heart University Greek Life community decided to assist with this project by holding our first annual 24-hour See-Saw-A-Thon in December 2011. We were able to raise nearly $11,000 which more than doubled the PTSA’s existing funds for the project. This year our goal is to double the amount we raised last year. The Greek community is hoping that with this event and your help, we will be able to reach our goal and these children will be one step closer to a fun and safe place to play.+
The total expected cost of the new playground is over $75,000.
As of April 22, 2013, we have raised $22,879!
