Saint Francis University’s local sorority Phi Lambda Psi hosted Autism awareness week.

National Autism Awareness week is the first week of April. The sorority kicked off awareness week with their annual Spaghetti Dinner. Phi Lambda Psi raised approximately $1, 500 for Dreams Go On, a horseback riding center for mentally and physically disabled children.

“I personally enjoy working the spaghetti dinner,” said Phi Lambda Psi sister, Paige Mundy. “It’s always great to see the SFU community come together for a great cause.”

Although the Spaghetti Dinner is an annual event, this was the first year the sorority collaborated with the Autism Task Force.

Additionally, the sorority helped Autism Task Force host a CES event on campus called “Autism Speaks.” Phi Lambda Psi raised $80 for ACRP (Alternative Community Resource Program) from selling bracelets and puzzles pieces.

“This event is important to our sorority because it embodies one of the major goals of our sorority to raise awareness of autism,” said Mundy.

In addition to the events hosted in April, the sorority continues to host events to raise awareness for autism. In the fall semester the sorority hosts an annual Autism Walk.
