NC Swing-a-Thon 2013

NC Swing-a-Thon 2013

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On April 15th, Sigma Alpha hosted their eleventh annual Swing-a-Thon fundraiser.  Fifteen brothers signed up to swing for fifteen minutes on the Brickyard. Each brother paid $10 to swing on the porch swing and received a t-shirt. Alpha Zeta helped to sponsor the event by donating over $100, so our name is printed on the shirts. The revenue from Swing-a-Thon goes towards Agriculture in the Classroom programs.

Chomp Cancer! Fundraiser at the Gelato Company

The members of the Florida Chapter got together on Monday, March 11th for some great gelato and company at The Gelato Company in downtown Gainesville. In addition to making the best chicken salad in town, Gelato Company donated a portion of their profits from the night toward the UF Alpha Zeta Relay for Life team. Members brought friends and enjoyed dinner, gelato, and even crepes. Some alumni of the chapter even turned out for the event! It was a delicious way for the chapter to fund-raise for the Relay for Life team.

Grilled Cheeses for Diseases was started as a way to raise funds to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Central Ohio. This years event took place on November 2, 2012. Members begin making grilled cheese sandwiches and give them to fellow students on campus in return for a donation. Through generous support of our university, we were able to purchase materials at no cost to our organization and could donate all proceeds directly to the Society. This event was done in collaboration with Alpha Tau Zeta-FarmHouse Fraternity, and we greatly enjoy working with other students groups to take part in philanthrophy activites...

Five members from Alpha Zeta Cornell re-visited Food Bank of the Southern Tier in Elmira, NY at which they volunteered last semester. They took a tour of the new facility that is being used to store and redistribute food across southern NY, particularly areas recovering from hurricane damage from the fall. Actives helped pack bags for the food bank’s Backpack Program which gives food that can be easily packed into school lunches to families in need.

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Every semester the Cornell Chapter hosts "Ag Day" on the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Quad. Our event this semester was held on 10/14. While Cornell may be the land grant university in our state, sadly many students do not even know that Cornell still has agricultural departments. We hold this event to both educate the Cornell Community, as well as to raise money for Tompkins County 4-H. Our event this semester was run as it has been in the past, with a fistulated cow for cow bingo, food, tractors, sheep, and campus agricultural organizations and clubs...
