Epsilon Mu raised more than $10,000 this past week during their Ultra Violet Campaign. The week consisted of profit shares at local restaurants, canning, Sigma Kappatizers and Field Day with Sigma K. We had so much fun sharing our philanthropy with the Mizzou community.
The week began with profit shares at Shakespeare’s, Yogoluv, Jamba Juice and Panda Express. Sisters gathered to eat, spend time together and support our philanthropies.
More than 1,000 people from across campus gathered at the Sigma Kappa house for a night of yummy appetizers and desserts on Thursday night. Sigma Kappatizers offers Toasted Ravioli, Jalapeño Cheese Poppers, French Fries, Mac and Chees Bites and a variety of desserts for only $6. It was a night filled with food, trivia, friends and philanthropy.
“It was so great to see girls getting really excited about pulling people into the house and raising money for out philanthropy, not to mention all the T-Ravs!” Sister Lindsay Gloor, Chapter President, said.
Sisters gathered at Stankowski Field to get ready for Field Day with Sigma K Friday afternoon. Eleven fraternities and two sororities competed in games such as limbo, egg races, a hula-hoop contest and clothing relays. Sisters also sold hot dogs and snacks at the field to raise extra money.
Teams competing in Ultra Violet week collect points throughout the week from banner and Field Day with Sigma K. Third place went to the men of Lambda Chi Alpha, second place to the men of Sigma Pi and first place to the men of Beta Sigma Psi.
All proceeds from this week go to the Sigma Kappa Foundation, benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Sea Coast mission, Leadership and Educational Development and the Sisters-in-Need Fund.
Philanthropy is very important to all of our sisters, making this week even more special.
“Philanthropy ties back into our core values by binding us all together to promote a common cause,” sister Gloor said.
Frannie Jones, Vice President of Philanthropic Services has worked closely with the Alzheimer’s Association.
“My biggest inspiration for this position came from working with The Greater Missouri Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association,” Sister Jones said. “They have been extremely welcoming to us and helped us reach our goals and become the top fundraising team in the nation for the past two years.”
“Alzheimer’s Disease needs to be noticed and given better funding, so I have grown to have a deep appreciation for everything that the Alzheimer’s Association does,” Sister Jones said.
