Alpha Phi is teaming up with the S.A.F.E. Center of Kearney for the start of a new philanthropy, the Alpha Phiesta taco feed the university and Kearney community.
“We just wanted to do something for the community that continually supports us,” said Allie Nightingale, a senior K-6 elementary major from Kearney and Alpha Phi’s current president. “The proceeds from this 'Phiesta' go toward the S.A.F.E. Center and the Alpha Phi Foundation, which supports its members as well as women’s cardiac care. We wanted to make an impact not only nationally, but locally as well.”
The Phiesta is being held 5-8 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Harmon Park Activities Center. Tickets are $3, or you can pay $5 at the door the day of the event.
The Phiesta includes an open taco bar, piñata’s, door prizes and also a new attraction, Alphatraz.
Greek advisor Tracy Lungrin will be held hostage in a jail cell unit. Students can post bond to set her free, or donate money to keep her locked up. This is just another way to help raise more proceeds to go toward this great cause.
“It’s going to be a great way for us to support our community and to get everyone involved. We hope to have a great turnout not only from the university, but also from our community members,” Nightingale said.
