Pitt Fraternities and Sororities to Sing and Dance for Cancer Research

Contact:  412-624-4147

PITTSBURGH—The University of Pittsburgh fraternities and sororities will sponsor their annual "Greek Sing," at 7 p.m. March 28 at Fitzgerald Field House, Allequippa and Darragh streets, Oakland. Tickets are $10 and available at the door. All proceeds benefit the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.

Each year, the University's Greek Community sponsors a series of events to support local charities. The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute is the beneficiary of a five-year commitment from Pitts's fraternities and sororities, who have set a goal to raise $500,000 to help fund a thoracic and lung cancer research laboratory.

"Greek Sing" highlights the singing and dancing talents of many of Pitt's fraternity and sorority members. This year's event will feature Neil Haskell, a former finalist on Fox Television's "So You Think You Can Dance". Haskell will be joined by area dance, choreography, and singing professionals to serve as judges for the show.
