The 25th anniversary Miss Greek pageant last month raised $73,000 for the Hutchinson Center’s general fund. In its 25-year history, the pageant and affiliated fundraisers have brought in nearly $1.5 million for the Center.
Hosted by Delta Tau Delta fraternity at the University of Washington, the pageant brought together contestants from 15 UW sororities to compete in the categories of personality, talent, community service and philanthropic effort, including fundraising for the Center.
Seattle native Meeghan Dooley of Alpha Delta Pi was crowned Miss Greek 2011. Dooley, an accomplished performer and dance teacher who is finishing her freshman year at UW, performed an Irish dance during the April 17 competition. She received a $1,000 scholarship award.
Additional awardees included first-runner-up Bryanda Wippel from Alpha Gamma Delta; second-runner-up Aislinn McManigal from Alpha Chi Omega, who was also the top fundraiser; and best-talent winner Marissa Hsu from Zeta Tau Alpha.
