The $15,000 raised will send approximately 33 campers to Camp Bratton this year, free of charge.

Pike Powderpuff was a week long event with a sorority football tournament as a finale.

Each sorority that participated had a $500 buy in and the winner of the entire event was given $2,000 toward their philanthropy budget. The $15,000 was raised by donations to a GoFundMe, t-shirt sales, and the sorority buy-ins. Pi Beta Phi won the entire event.
