The Beta Gamma Chapter was declared the champion at Tau Kappa Epsilon Fratenrity's St. Jude Bowl event at the University of Louisville.
The Beta Gamma chapter celebrated 89 years on the University of Louisville’s campus in Kentucky this year.
The chapter hosts several successful events for philanthropy, including the annual Delta Zeta auction, Miss University of Louisville pageant, Tacos with Turtles, and Hamburgers for Hearing. "This year, we added a new philanthropy/fundraising event called Pancakes for Painted Turtle," said Monica Judd, Historian, "where all members of the UofL community were invited to come eat unlimited pancakes in exchange for a $5 donation towards The Painted Turtle camp.
"Our chapter has also been very active in philanthropy through giving. This semester alone, our members logged 3,560 hours of community service and over $17,000 in donations from individual chapter members," Monica concluded.
Beta Gamma has continued to excel in intramurals this year, taking home first place in handball and floor hockey and runner up in flag football and basketball.
Each year, the University of Louisville puts on an 18-hour dance marathon called RaiseRed that raises money for pediatric oncology research. This year, RaiseRed raised $459,402.50 for this cause, and two members, Saralyn Callahan and Elizabeth Ehlmen, were members of RaiseRed’s executive board. Members Madi Harley and Dulci Gurley have been chosen to serve on next year’s board.
