building strong girls
Gamma Phi Beta's philanthropic mission is to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls. We do this through our philanthropic focus, Building Strong Girls. Gamma Phi Beta is the proud exclusive National Panhellenic Conference National Sponsor of Girls on the Run International, a nonprofit organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. At the end of each session, the girls complete a 5k event with the support of their friends, coaches, family, and Gamma Phi Beta!
We are currently in the process of creating a local Girls On The Run chapter in Commerce so that we can become more involved with our philanthropic partner at the local level.

Our chapter hosts one philanthropy event each semester after which all proceeds are donated to Girls on the Run. Every Gamma Phi Beta chapter hosts Moonball, our Sorority's signature philanthropy event, once a year. Our Moonball event is a basketball tournament held in the spring semester. In the fall, we hold our chapter's traditional Chili Cook Off, an event in which local competitors enter their homemade chili recipes for sampling by attendees and a panel of judges. At both of these events, we provide refreshments, a DJ, and raffle prizes including Kendra Scott jewelry, Texas Rangers tickets, and Yeti coolers. We love philanthropy events because they give us a chance to bond as sisters, impact our community, and give back to the philanthropy we love so much.
Congratulations to the Theta Xi Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha for winning Moonball 2017! We had such a great time hosting our basketball tournament. Thank you so much to all of the teams and organizations that participated.
