Fraternity Fun & Games to Help Critically Ill Children

Fraternity leaders, university students, fundraisers for critically ill children
When mobilized to raise funds for the American Family Children’s Hospital at the University of Wisconsin, Sigma Chi uses fun and games for a serious cause.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a venerable institution, as the oldest and largest public university in the state and rooted in what they call the “Wisconsin Idea” - which believes that all university efforts in research, teaching, and service should benefit the community as a whole. The men of the Alpha Lambda Chapter of Sigma Chi fraternity embody that philosophy annually when they organize their Derby Days fundraiser for the American Family Children’s Hospital.
The AFCH, right in the heart of Madison, serves a noble cause each and every day - the pediatric hospital has been ranked in the top 50 nationally by U.S. News and World Report in the fields of cancer, gastroenterology, orthopedics, and pulmonology. The hospital cares for the sickest and most seriously injured infants, children and adolescents referred from throughout Wisconsin, the United States and beyond. The AFCH provides patients and their families with many services, including sleep areas for parents and siblings, a family resource center, and a program that works with schools so that children can continue their educations.
So how to make their Derby Days fundraiser stand out in a sea of almost 30,000 undergraduates? Jon Routh, Andre Johnson, and Tito McMahon turned to Hobnob to send out text-based invitations for their event that spanned four days and included nine major sororities.
