★ CHAPTER PHILANTHROPY ★
In the fall of 2018, we hosted our first annual Cocoa for the Kids event to further fundraise for CMNH! In the chill of the Florida winter, guests could come to our hot cocoa bar and desserts in exchange for a donation to our cause.
In its inaugural year, we raised nearly $5,000 dollars from this event alone. Keep looking out for Cocoa for Kids in the years to come!
Phi Mu is a corporate sponsor of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) nationally, and the funds we raise at the Alpha Nu Chapter support UF Health Shands Children's Hospital in Gainesville, our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.
Our chapter's annual philanthropic event, Phi Mu Tailgate Invitational, was a cause we all looked forward to for the years past. It included a day of relay races, games and tons of laughs as we engaged in healthy competition and united campus organizations to support CMNH and UF Health Shands Children's Hospital. Through the years, we've raised thousands of dollars from our Tailgate Invitational event and have brought awareness to CMNH as a worthy cause.
In 2020, we rebranded our beloved Tailgate into what is now Bonnamu: a Battle of the Bands benefit concert that encompasses goers into a fun and inviting space full of local artists, games, and food trucks.

COCOA FOR THE KIDS
At the beginning of 2018, we hosted our first annual Milkshakes for Miracles event for an additional fundraising effort towards CMNH and Dance Marathon! Guests were welcomed into our house for an array of milkshake flavors and desserts in exchange for a donation to our cause. We raise another $5,000 dollars from this event alone. Keep looking out for milkshakes in the years to come!
