Stomp-a-palooza, a step show open to all Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council Greeks, will take place in the Singletary Center for the Arts on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Eighteen teams are participating in this year’s competition, put on by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.

Proceeds will benefit the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Lexington and March of Dimes, both nonprofit organizations.

CASA supports and promotes volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children, while March of Dimes works to improve the health of pregnant mothers and their babies.

It was Alpha Phi Alpha that developed the idea for the event, then went to Kappa Alpha Theta to suggest that the two organizations partner to sponsor the event.

“Stomp-a-palooza won Greek event of the year last year and we want to uphold that title and put on a great show for the audience,” said Lyndsey Pickett, chief marketing officer for Kappa Alpha Theta.

According to Chisom Omenyinma, the Alpha Phi Alpha president, fraternities and sororities to watch out for include last year’s champions, FIJI and Chi Omega.

“I feel like this year’s show is going to be great,” Omenyinma said.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Singletary Center for $8 for students and senior citizens, and $9 for the general public. Tickets will be $10 for everyone the day of the show.
