The Deangelo Williams Foundation put on a giant corn hole tournament in the support of fighting breast cancer. Teams would "throw for a cure," and raised enough money to write a check for 10,355 dollars to the West Cancer Center. I was able to play cornhole, donate money to the cause, and make connections all in support of fighting Breast Cancer.
Continuing to give time for the kids of St. Jude has been an inspiring and rewarding experience.
The Ice Cream Social was a great experience where I was able to help raise money for kids at St. Jude. University of Memphis students came to the Sigma Chi fraternity house for ice cream and a great cause. I helped facilitate the distribution of ice cream and made sure that everyone was having a great time.
On March 21, I assisted in organizing and providing the funding for an Ice Cream Social event at the Sigma Chi Fraternity house benefiting St. Jude Up 'Til Dawn. The event lasted about two and a half hours and all proceeds went directly to the St. Jude foundation.
Helped organize the Tiger Pantry for students with food insecurity.
I volunteered as program director for the Chickasaw Council of the Boy Scouts of America and organized their winter program for youth in the community.
Fall move-in 2018 with Sigma Chi
On October 21, the Sigma Chi Epsilon Kappa Chapter at the University of Memphis held a pageant in coordination with the Panhellenic organizations on campus for the finale of their Derby Days fundraising week. The Derby Days fundraising efforts benefit the U.S. Special Olympics Organization and donates to special olympic athletes in need of financial assistance. In addition to raising funds for these fundraising efforts, I volunteered by assisting in the set- up, clean up, and coordination of the Sigma Chi house for the Derby Dolls Pageant. The amount raised for the entire week equaled to more than $20,301.99 in total.
On October 28, 2018, I volunteered with Sigma Chi in coordination with Special Olympics Memphis. During this time, I played flag football alongside and made connections with many of the special olympics participants present on that day. This event took place at the University of Memphis UC Alumni Lawn.
Helped run and operate a field day for the Special Olympics on the University of Memphis campus
