Community service is something that is very meaningful to us. In April of 2009, we teamed up with Autism Speaks as our philanthropic partner. For Autism Speaks, we hold an annual walk in Cape Girardeau during April, and we host an event for the fraternity men on campus called Football FrenXi. We hold our Football FrenXi tournament each fall with the registration fees going toward Autism Speaks.
In the spring semester, we travel to West County Mall in St. Louis, Missouri to host a party at Build-a-Bear Workshop, where you can build a bear to donate to a child with autism, or there is a special bear that you can build where $1 of the proceeds will go to Autism Speaks!
This past year, we added The Xi Man Competition to our array of events to help raise funds and awareness for Autism Speaks! We invite fraternities from our campus to join us and enter one of their finest men into this fun pageant, and it consists of three rounds, each with eliminations. It truly is an unforgettable experience, and each registration fee goes towards Autism Speaks!
Along with our own philanthropy, we also enjoy participating in philanthropies to support our fellow Greek affiliations on campus. Some of these include Pike Spike, Sigma Chi Derby Days, Sigma Nu Mark Hudson Classic, Delta Chi Esta, Scorin with Sig Tau, Sig Ep Super Bowl, Lambda Chi Watermelon Bust, and the Quest for Theta Xi.
