Sororities compete to raise money for the Wesley

Kappa Sigma organizes a football event each fall semester to raise money for their chapter philanthropy, Military Heroes. This Spring, they are debuting a new philanthropy event, Sorority Madness, to raise money for The Wesley. The Wesley Foundation is located just off the Tahlequah campus and serves free meals to students at no charge every Wednesday.

Keegan Lytch, Kappa Sigma philanthropy chair, is in charge of coordinating this event. His goal for the new philanthropy event is to raise as much money as possible while building connections between the sororities on campus.

“We have powderpuff in the fall of every year and we have had continued success in not only getting more people involved, but raising more money for a greater cause as well,” said Lytch. “We wanted to do the same thing in the spring and what better way than a March madness themed basketball tournament.”

Delta Zeta, Tri Sigma and Alpha Omicron Pi will be competing against one another for the top spot in Sorority Madness. The three teams have a Kappa Sigma coaching staff assigned to them to prepare to play in the event. Each team will consist of five members from that organization.

A Greater Cause is Kappa Sigma’s national philanthropy program. This program encourages all of Kappa Sigma chapters to volunteer and serve the community around them.

“What makes me passionate about our philanthropy is seeing how it greatly helps and impacts the one you are raising money for,” said Ryan LeCrone, Kappa Sigma grand master of ceremonies. “Money isn’t always easy to come by, especially for a non-profit organization that constantly continues to give and never asks for anything in return.”

Kappa Sigma is excited to give all the proceeds earned through admission prices and sorority team entry fees to a local group with a mission statement that aligns with Kappa Sigma’s national philanthropy program.

“The Wesley continues to provide to the community and students of NSU,” said Luke DeHues, Kappa Sigma treasurer. “Thus, we are excited to give back.”

Lytch said this is primarily a Greek event, but the community and students of NSU are invited to attend as well. General admission into the games will be $5 at the door. Kappa Sigma’s goal is to raise $800 to contribute to the Wesley.

“My passion for philanthropy is related to my love for the community that surrounds me,” said DeHues. “The community continues to provide love, opportunity and knowledge while helping me to improve myself daily. I always feel a passion for giving back and hopefully providing and sharing with the world and people that surround me”

This event will be at 5 p.m., March 28 in the Jack Dobbins Field House.
