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.
Monday afternoon Theta Zeta received an unusual Facebook request from sisters of the Sigma Kappa sorority at American University in Washington D.C.: Can you send us pictures of yourselves? There was, of course, a point to this request. Competing in Kappa Rho Chapter’s Derby Days, teams were tasked with collecting pictures of Sigs holding a sign reading “Sigma Kappa American University.” We had to oblige! Hello from Bridgewater, MA!
Chris Saikali (Bridgewater ’12) visited the Theta Zeta chapter this evening to offer his wisdom to the Spring 2016 pledge class. Heading a focus group on leadership, Magister Nick Abbondanzio invited Saikali to offer his perspective on the past, present, and future of our chapter. A former Kustos, Magister, and Consul, Saikali gave his advice on maximizing the potential of this year’s operations, as well as achieving our chapter’s strategic goals.
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!
Spring 2016 Rush at Theta Zeta continued Tuesday evening with billiards at The Riviera. Brothers and Rushes alike enjoyed lively conversation and laughs over the pool table. Check out a few of the candid pics from the evening!
17 Active Undergraduates of Theta Zeta fit coming out to support the Bridgewater-Raynham High School Swim Team into their busy schedules between classes and a Rush event later in the evening. I (Brodey Moran) have been up since 0430, but nothing could make me retire before getting these posts up on our website! Today was an absolute blast meeting new Rushes; I speak for all the Brothers when I say we cannot wait to continue Spring 2016 Rush tomorrow!
That special time of the semester is upon us once again…RUSH! Below is Theta Zeta’s schedule of events for Spring 2016 Rush. Click on the image to open the document full size. See you this week!
Wednesday, January 20 marks the first day of classes for the Spring 2016 term at Bridgewater State University. The Brothers of Sigma Chi took a moment today to reflect on our goals for the academic year and renewed our commitments to making them a reality.
Thus far we have made promising strides in raising our $20,000 goal for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, currently coming in at just over $8,000 when Vincent Fernald’s donation matching gift from Apple Inc. comes through. Keep an eye on our DerbyChallenge site for the big number to appear! We also remain committed to cumulatively serving thousands of hours in community service hours this year, as well as strategically positioning the Chapter for success in the years to come.
What are you most looking forward to this semester? Let us know in a comment below!
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!
