PHILANTHROPY FLASHBACK

The brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha have a long and distinguished history of charitable fund-raising and public service to the community and the University of Pennsylvania.

As reported in the September 28, 1990, issue of the Daily Pennsylvanian, Pi Kappa Alpha took a leading role in the preparation for a 24-hour dance marathon for the benefit of handicapped children.

The dance marathon was to be held that November at the Philadelphia Civic Center through the auspices of the Variety Club, an international volunteer organization that provided services for disabled children. Participants in the marathon were expected to come from ten area colleges and universities. Q-102 Radio was to host the marathon.

According to Beta Pi spokesman Mike Maslansky ’89, Pi Kappa Alpha volunteered to publicize the event by hanging posters on Penn’s campus and at PiKA parties. In addition, PiKA would provide and man sign-up booths at various places on Penn’s campus to attract dance participants.

Thank you to brother Maslansky and all other Beta Pi volunteers for their time and effort for this worthy charitable cause.
