Campus and Community
UofL’s Sigma Chi chapter had an extremely successful philanthropic year! Our main philanthropy event, Wrap Up Louisville was able to collect 7,017 blankets for the homeless of Louisville and also make a $5,000 donation to the Salvation Army with the help of the wonderful Greek women at UofL. Each sorority, led by Sigma Chi captains, collected blanket donations for months and participated in a fort building contest to celebrate all the hard work they put in. The winner of Wrap Up 2018 was Alpha Omicron Pi who raised a total of 1,028 blankets on their own! Wrap Up Louisville was given the award for Most Outstanding Philanthropy by the Fraternity and Sorority Life Awards for the second year in a row and we’re excited to be planning Wrap Up again for this Fall semester and hoping to have an even more successful event to impact our community.
RaiseRED Dance Marathon is an 18-hour dance marathon on campus to benefit pediatric cancer research and many Sigma Chi brothers have become very involved in recent years. This past year there were 10 Sigma Chi’s involved in a RaiseRED leadership position and 71 brothers participated in the event. At the end of 18 hours, we had raised $37,000, been awarded with Top Fraternity Participation and Top Fundraising Team (by over $15,000), and had an amazing time dancing for a great cause. We also had 3 brothers recognized as Top 10 Individual Fundraisers. We look forward to seeing what our chapter can contribute for the 2019 dance marathon!
Our annual 80's Week activities have become a staple of Sigma Chi's spring semester festivities. Occurring in the month of March, 80's week is our way of remembering the great music and fashion of the 1980's.
