Cal Poly Greeks Raised Half a Million in 2016

According to the University’s department of Student Life, Cal Poly’s Greek organizations worked together in 2016 to raise nearly $500,000 for various nonprofit organizations.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) organizations raised more than $200,000 for the Military Heroes Campaign, the V Foundation for Cancer Research, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and other local and national nonprofit agencies. Tau Kappa Epsilon donated $128,350 to their St. Jude philanthropy.
Meanhile, the Panhellenic Council (PHA) and United Sorority and Fraternity Council (USFC) each raised more than $100,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation and the Arthritis Foundation, among other charities. Chi Omega, a Panhellenic chapter with a 10-year presence at Cal Poly, raised $45,000 in one night for Make-A-Wish through its “Chi O Casino” philanthropy event.
Alpha Omicron Pi raised $30,000 with its citywide Arthritis Walk. Proceeds went to Make-A-Wish, to benefit children with life-threatening illnesses, and the Arthritis Foundation.
The three Greek councils collectively volunteered more than 35,000 hours of community service last year. For full information, contact Joe Benson at: pr@calpolyifc.com.
