Alpha Phi hosted our 5th annual King of Hearts male pageant last Thursday, November 2nd. The event was held at The Merryman Performing Arts Center with more than 700 attendees watching 11 men compete for the title "King of Hearts". The event started with a choreographed dance followed by a video, talent, and question/answer portion for each contestant. The King of Hearts was chosen from a panel of judges. We were lucky enough to have an Alpha Phi alumna who works for the S.A.F.E. Center on the panel.
Jacob Curry, representing Sigma Phi Epsilon, was named Mr. King of Hearts as well as Mr. Hearthrob. Delta Tau Delta's Brent Anderson was voted Mr. Congeniality by the other contestants. Lastly, Mr. People's Choice was Taylor Janicek of Phi Delta Theta.
This year, our King of Hearts event raised $6,000 for the Alpha Phi Foundation which supports scholarship and women's cardiac care. In addition, a portion of the money will be donated locally to the S.A.F.E. Center in Kearney which supports women in domestic violence situations. The Delta Xi chapter would like to thank all those who contributed to the success of this event. We are already looking forward to King of Hearts 2018.
