It’s been a rough few weeks for fraternities and sororities at Cal Poly, culminating in suspension of all Greek organizations indefinitely by the college president, but that doesn’t mean the good deeds the students do stopped.
The Eighth Annual Sorority’s Best Dance Crew, presented by Theta Chi Fraternity, recently raised $4,500 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo County, BBBS announced. Some 12 sororities went head to head, with Gamma Phi Beta taking first place for the fourth time since the event’s eight years.
Patty Carpenter, BBBS development director said, “We are thrilled to have this dedicated group of Cal Poly students supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters on an annual basis. Their commitment to our organization is a testament to their desire to contribute to the community”
“Since 1856,” Jake Hughes, philanthropy chair for Theta Chi said, “the motto of Theta Chi has been ‘An Assisting Hand.’ Every year the Zeta Phi chapter here in San Luis Obispo works to raise money in order to assist our favorite local philanthropic group, Big Brothers Big Sisters.”
