Fraternities and sororities at the College of Charleston recently hosted Pep Supper, an annual event that helps people in need while also celebrating CofC athletics.
The event, which included a banner competition, a dance competition and a food drive for the Lowcountry Food Bank, drew participation this year from all of the organizations within the fraternity and sorority community. The total weight for the food donation to the Lowcountry Food Bank was 29,844 pounds. The dance competition took place at the volleyball game in TD Arena on Oct. 23, 2017.
Pep Supper was organized this year by students Kate Conway, Jennifer Asouzu and Bard Van Calcar.
“The most rewarding part of Pep Supper was seeing the Greek community come together for our council-wide goal and value of community service,” Asouzu says.
Conway says being a part of the planning process and seeing all of the parts come together was extremely rewarding. “Over the last month I really enjoyed working with all of our Panhellenic organizations. Communicating daily with Pep Supper chairs and watching their dances progress over time was so exciting. Seeing all of us come together Monday night for our community was such a rewarding feeling,” she says. “I couldn’t have done it without Jennifer and Bard. Everyone’s hard work definitely paid off and I am so proud of College of Charleston’s Greek community.”
