The Miami-Dade and Broward County chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. have formed a corporate PAC with Hurricane Grill&Wings (HGW) to raise funds for the March of Dimes.
The Iota Pi Lambda (South Miami), Eta Delta (University of Miami), and Zeta Alpha Lambda (Fort Lauderdale) chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and HGW recently raised over $4,600 in support of the March for Babies South Florida Philanthropy Campaign. Collectively, Alpha Phi Alpha Chapters within the two counties have raised nearly $7,000 in support of March of Dimes.
In the future, the fraternity hopes to expand its local partnership to its 700 chapters located throughout the country and the markets of the FAT Brands Inc. family of restaurants.
