The Gentlemen of Beta Chi Theta, National Fraternity Inc. constantly strive for innovation and the Brothers of Sigma Colony were able to use this innovation to put a unique twist on a well-known experience.
The Gentlemen of Beta Chi at Rutgers University recently held a service event, using the fun carnival game of Dunk Tank, to raise money towards one of Beta Chi’s core pillars – Service to Humanity. The brothers took turns as sitting ducks, and by charging two dollars per ball (or five dollars for 3 for those that were feeling more generous or vengeful), they were able to raise over $500 in the space of five hours. The money will be going towards Beta Chi Theta’s annual donation in support of the national philanthropy – Beating Heart Disease.
“The event went really well…we surpassed our goal which was to raise $500.00, and gained some useful experience as to how we can raise even more money next year.” Service Director Brandon Mazal was quoted as saying.
“Everyone that participated had a good time while raising money and awareness for a great cause. Our entire organization is looking forward to our next philanthropy event.” President Samarth Shah added.
As the younger colonies of Beta Chi Theta come up with even more innovative ideas at their campuses nationwide, the future seems to hold a lot of promise.
