Children were welcomed at the Pi Phi house for a halloween celebration.

TCU’s Pi Beta Phi sorority celebrated “Boo with the Wine and Blue” to continue its tradition of making strong connections with local alumnae.

The Texas Delta chapter hosts the Halloween-themed event for the Fort Worth alumnae club every year, said Bonnie Devany, the junior vice president of housing.

Pi Phi invited local alumnae and their children to come to the house and participate in activities to get in the Halloween spirit. This year’s activities included trick-or-treating, face painting and holiday crafting.

Some Pi Phi members said they love hosting this event and like to see what all the children come dressed up as.

“I always love to see all the little kids getting excited about Halloween and asking them why they chose their particular costume,” said senior fashion merchandising major Peyton Davis.

Senior strategic communication major Ally McLaughlin said she likes how this event gives current members a chance to connect with and hear stories from their alumnae.

Phi Pi alumnae said they loved the event because they are able to see their children interact with the current Pi Phi women.

“I truly enjoy this event because I have the chance to see my girls interact with the TCU Pi Phi women,” said Jessica Ledbetter, a TCU adjunct professor. “The patience, care and interest they show in my kids is such a blessing, and my girls really love the time they spend with these wonderful women, making Halloween crafts and sharing stories.”

Devany said Pi Phi’s alumnae are extremely supportive, and she loves giving back to them in return.

“We love having the opportunity to throw an event for them,” said Devany.
