Zeta Tau Alpha’s National Philanthropy is Breast Cancer Awareness and Education. The Gamma Iota Chapter at University of Florida puts on Zeta Linedance every year to raise money! It is an exciting event where the fraternities of UF each perform a dance to compete for the crown (ok, trophy).  The dances were outstanding this year!

Helping Others Make a Difference

On March 18, Zeta Tau Alpha helped the brothers of Sigma Chi put on a fitness carnival for children in an effort to promote physical activity and nutritional eating in Gainesville’s youth.

The event took place at the Boys and Girls Club and about 65 children attended. The carnival consisted of several activities, including an inflatable Slip ‘N Slide and obstacle course, field games and a station where children could eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. With help from our sisters, Sigma Chi assisted and cheered on children as they participated in these activities.

“It was great to see the kids being active and having fun at the same time,” said Evyn Flaherty, a member of Zeta. “The event was awesome all around.”

Our Philanthropy: Zeta Linedance

“To prepare for service and learn the nobility of serving, thereby earning the right to be served…”

Each October, Zeta Tau Alpha holds a linedance competition in which members of our sorority pair with members from each fraternity on campus, divide into teams and choreograph dances to perform live.  Zeta Linedance raises money to promote our philanthropy, breast cancer awareness and education. This past year, we held our 30th annual line dance competition and raised $38,000!

“I think it’s amazing that as an organization of over 200 women, we can work year-round to raise money and awareness for a disease that affects one out of every eight women,” Rachel Hart, one of the 2014 Linedance Chairmen said.

We’re looking forward to our next linedance competition this fall!
