The Greek community set a new record for raising money in its annual philanthropy event, “Up ‘Til Dawn.”
Fraternities and sororities raised $42,235 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, double the amount that they raised last year.
Up ‘Til Dawn is a student-led program by schools across the country to help fund St. Jude’s research on childhood diseases. Participants from the campus community registered and pledged to raise at least $600 per team either online or in person.
The teams gathered at the Bronco Student Center on Saturday night, Feb. 8, and competed until dawn the next morning in three team challenges for a grand prize. The program is called Up ‘Til Dawn as a tribute to the patients and their families who sacrifice many nights of sleep.
“SigKapSix,” a group of students from Sigma Kappa was the winning fundraising team, raising $1,256 online.
