The Kappa-Theta Chapter of Kappa Sigma at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania recently held its sixth Chili cook-off to benefit the Military Heroes Campaign.
Brothers kicked off the event by visiting other groups on campus and in the Indiana area to promote and find contestants for the event. “We really made it a point to try and bridge the gap between the school and the Indiana community,” said chapter brother Shane Hickey.
The cook-off was judged by the president of the university, the mayor, IUP ROTC Master Sgt. Jacob Wilson, and Kappa Sigma alumnus Aaron Ulish. The winners received gift cards and the event was able to raise over $1,500 dollars. The money raised will directly benefit the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign.
Kappa Sigma is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. It is this commitment that has provided the inspiration and vision for A Greater Cause – the Fraternity’s bold initiative to promote volunteerism, citizenship and service to the community. During the 2013-2015 biennium, Kappa Sigma members raised more than $5.8 million for charity and volunteered over 1.1 million hours of community service as part of the initiative.
The Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign honors and aids thousands of military veterans and their families in communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Since its inception in 2007, the campaign has donated over $1,000,000 to non-profit organizations who advocate on behalf of servicemen and women and those wounded in combat.
