Phriday Phrenzy: Student Collaboration for Philanthropy

At the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester, Sam Rickert and his fraternity brothers partnered with the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and several other fraternities to host an event called Phriday Phrenzy that raised over $2,500 to support the 2022 UA Dance Marathon (UADM) fundraiser for Children’s of Alabama, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Birmingham.

Sam has been a plugged-in student at UA since he arrived from Louisville, Kentucky his freshman year. Now the treasurer of UA’s Phi Delta Theta chapter and executive vice president of SGA, he’s thrilled to collaborate with his campus connections to make a difference for others.
