On November 16, the Alpha Beta Chapter of Phi Mu held their annual philanthropy event, Miracle Man. Miracle Man is a male pageant, where men from different Greek Life organizations participate in a talent, outfit of choice, and an interview. It was awesome to see these men and the chapter of Phi Mu put on a great event for a great cause!
The event started out with a group dance of all the contestants. They danced to songs like “Man I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain, and “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls. This opening dance was a great way for the men to show off their personalities and they did not hold back. Contestants shimmied, did their best runway walk, and showed off their best poses in this opening dance. Next was the Talent Round. The Talent Round consisted of singing, dancing, and a lot of laughs while the men individually showed off what they did best at. Some reenacted parts of movies which included the Blades of Glory skating routine, the Elf singing shower scene, and the Miss Congeniality water glass talent scene. Other talents included putting 26 marshmallows in his mouth, playing the guitar, and making a grilled cheese. All talents brought smiles and laughter to the audience, but only 15 out of the 22 could move on to the outfit of choice.
In the outfit of choice round, we saw the contestants dress to impress our judges. Contestants dressed in any way they wanted too. We had contestants dress as if they were going to the beach, dress as if they were a trophy, and dress with a Phi Mu banner as a cape. Every contestant was able to talk about their outfit to our wonderful emcees Georgie Carrico and Stephanie McKee. Next, was the interview round. Only 5 constants moved on to this round. Questions included “Canes or Zyaxby’s?” and “If you were on a deserted island, what is the one thing you would have with you?”. In the end, we could only have one winner which was Cooper Lanetfield from Sigma Alpha Epsilon who won everyone over by dressing as a Trophy for outfit of choice. Congrats on being the 2016 Miracle Man Cooper!
This year Miracle Man raised $10,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Phi Mu’s Philanthropy Chair Breckin Lippoldt did an amazing job coordinating this event! Phi Mu is so proud of you Breckin, and thank you to everyone who came to support this fun philanthropy event!
