On October 18, 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 $22,000 in total.
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.
