East TN Children's Hospital
As a chapter we are so lucky to have a Children's Miracle Network Hospital right down the road from our campus. Our members love to love on the kids at East TN Children's Hospital (ETCH) on a regular basis.
Boots and BBQ
Boots and BBQ is our annual Phi Mu tailgate in the Fall! We team up with local companies and sell tickets to students, parents, and fans for our cookout before a home football game to raise money for the East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
Model for a Miracle
Each Spring, the Kappa chapter hosts "Model for a Miracle". This is a male pageant where members of various IFC, NPHC, and MGC fraternities compete for the crown. The night consists of an introduction, formalwear, talent, and Q&A. The males are escorted by women from various sororities. Last semester, Phi Mu members made teddy bears at Build-a-Bear to donate to the hospital and attendees at the pageant voted on the best bear with change jars. All proceeds from the night go to ETCH.
Phi Mu is proud to send our sisters to visit ETCH biweekly and play with the children. This includes several themed parties such as Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's where cards and goodies are made for the kids at the hospital.
Every spring the sisters of Phi Mu redo the room of a child at the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. The child picks out a theme for his or her room, and chapter members work together with the Special Spaces team to create it.
Our Phi Mu sisters also participate in the annual Children’s Miracle Network Telethon that is organized by the hospital in Knoxville. Our sisters volunteer their time answering phones and taking donations for the hospital.
