Sigma Chi at Florida Gulf Coast nets $30,000 for Huntsman Cancer Institute


I love the idea behind Derby Days for Sigma Chi. The tradition started back at UC Berkley in 1916, and it still goes on today. Derby Days is four different parts. It consists of a relay race (sporting events and trivia), a fundraising competition, a skit competition, and finally the crowning of the Derby Darling. According to the latest article, Sigma Chi raised over $1.2 Million in 2013 for the Hunstman Cancer Institute from alumni and undergraduate chapters.

This event taps into the competitiveness of the Greek system, it’s fun, engaging, and they’ve done a great job branding the event at chapters across the country. Not to mention, it’s all for a great cause! Keep up the great work guys.
