STATESBORO — Delta Sigma Phi fraternity at Georgia Southern to host week long fundraiser for local organizations.
The fraternity is partnering with Step GSU, Service Dog Training and Education Program, in an effort to support the Statesboro and Bulloch County Humane Society and Southeastern Guide Dogs.
This has been a decade long effort by the fraternity to raise money for these organizations. Events begin on Monday, Nov. 4 and will continue throughout the week.
The fraternity is switching fundraising tactics this year to raise more money. There will be multiple teams representing campus organizations with five to six members and a dog to sponsor.
These teams will compete for points throughout the week through various tasks and events with the goal of winning money towards their philanthropy, a trophy and possibly a free band gig for an event of their choice. A tentative schedule is listed below.
“Monday (Meet the Dogs): On Monday, each team will get to meet the dog that they are sponsoring for Dog Days. This will be the first day that the Humane Society and STEP will be bringing the dog to campus to meet everyone. Pictures will be taken for the social media contest.
Tuesday (Dine to Donate): On Tuesday, Delta Sig will be partnering with a local restaurant to host a benefit night to raise money for our cause. Teams will receive points for every member of their organization that dines at the restaurant that evening.
Thursday (Dogs with the Dogs): Delta Sig and STEP will be hosting a cookout at the Delta Sig chapter house. Brothers and teams will be responsible for selling as many tickets as possible and will gain points for every ticket sold.
Friday (Fundraising Day and Band Party): Team members and brothers will be provided a graphic to solicit donations individually via social media. In addition, the brothers of Delta Sig will be hosting a band party at the chapter house. All proceeds from admission will be donated,” the itinerary read.
