Alison Hornung: How did you get philanthropy results for Panhellenic council?

Alison Hornung is a 23 year old graduate of the University of Rhode Island, with degrees in Global Business Management, German, and Human Development and Family Sciences. She has been a passionate childhood cancer advocate since the age of 12. Her biggest inspiration remains her honorary “little sis,” Ella, who battled leukemia for 3 years. Ella lit a spark for Ali and all those around her that inspire them to fight for what they believe in. Ali has advocated multiple times to Congress members in D.C. and virtually for more funding for pediatric cancer in honor of Ella and all of the other fighters, survivors and angels. ⁣ Ali has raised over $350,000 for various organizations including LLS, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, The Izzy Foundation, Talia’s Legacy, The Tomorrow Fund and more. She is the founder of Miracle Masks, a small business where she has created over 2,500 face masks and donated all of the proceeds to childhood cancer foundations.
