The Huntsman Olympics are upon us again! We are thrilled to have the Huntsman Olympics return for the third year in a row! Make a team, and sign up below! Let’s raise a boat load for cancer everybody!
Since our inception, Sigma Chis have endeavored to give back to our world. The Huntsman Olympics is Theta Zeta’s unique take on this Fraternal tradition. Through a week long series of fundraising events driven by the spirit of philanthropy and excited with a little friendly competition, registered teams who have donated to our cause compete to take home the glory of Olympic Gold.
Theta Zeta is working the finish line of the 120th Boston Marathon today! With over 30,000 runners from 80 countries, it’s sure to be a busy day! Boston Strong!
Theta Zeta will be participating in BSU’s Relay for Life this Friday, April 8 from 7 PM to 7 AM the following morning. Although the Huntsman Cancer Institute is Sigma Chi’s primary philanthropy, we brothers at Theta Zeta couldn’t justify sitting idly by and letting an equally worthy cause go without support. As of Tuesday evening, we have raised $1,431 for the American Cancer Society.
Teams are encouraged to fundraise at the relay by running a booth with a unique, enticing good or service in exchange for a small donation. Theta Zeta has decided to run a Guitar Hero booth, where players will compete for the high score to win a Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. Only $1 per song attempt!
We hope to see you this Friday! IH.
Theta Zeta turned out at the TD Garden to volunteer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children through the Shamrock Foundation. In total we collected $3,500 in the 50/50 raffle, with half supporting the MSPCC. We’ll be back next week to support the cause again!
Since the beginning of the NBA regular season, Theta Zeta has been volunteering their time at Boston Celtics home games at the TD Garden on behalf of the Shamrock Foundation. Running the Foundation’s 50/50 raffle, Theta Zeta helps the Foundation raise thousands of dollars for the vital community action the Foundation is responsible for.
The mission of the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation is to extend the reach of the Celtics championship legacy into our community through programs that directly benefit children in need. To do this, the Foundation applies a team mentality – much like that of the 17-time world championship Celtics – and relies on key partnerships with New England-based non-profit organizations that provide vital services and support to youth.
Head over to their website, http://www.nba.com/celtics/community/shamrock-foundation/index.html, to see why we find it so rewarding to support the Shamrock Foundation weekly!
On Thursday, December 10 from 7-9 PM, Vineyard Vines will host Theta Zeta for a fundraiser. In addition to a 10% discount storewide, 10% of all purchases during this period will be donated to our Huntsman Cancer Foundation donation goals. Let’s make it a big one!
In honor of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Theta Zeta donated to help end hunger by donating to the food drive in the East Campus Commons on BSU’s campus. We encourage you to do the same!
Theta Zeta showed their support for breast cancer research and awareness while volunteering at Boston’s 2015 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Assisting with setup, distributing water, and directing participants and supporters were a few of the ways brothers helped out. Check out Susan G. Komen for the Cure Massachusetts for more information on Komen, and to sign up for next season’s race!
