ULM celebrates first “Greek Songfest” Nov. 19

The University of Louisiana at Monroe’s Office of Greek Life, in partnership with the City of Monroe, will sponsor the first “Greek Songfest” at 6 p.m. on Nov. 19 in Brown Auditorium.

Admission is $2 and the event is open to the public. All money raised will benefit the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.

ULM’s 16 Greek chapters will compete in a Christmas song and dance competition, featuring an overall first, second and third place, calculated by the highest score totals. The first place winner will perform at the Christmas at ULM event on Dec. 2 in the Quad.

“We chose the Salvation Army Angel tree program is because Songfest is Christmas themed,” Keith Hembree, Greek Life coordinator said. “With the recent economy and job situation, we felt that this would be a great way to show the Monroe Community how Greek Life supports our area children.”

The Angel Tree program provides local underprivileged children with clothing and/or toys for Christmas.
