Sigma Nu to hold Greek Bowl

The Sigma Nu fraternity will host the third annual GrEEK Bowl April 15 in the Hippodrome, where teams will answer pop trivia questions to raise money.

All proceeds raised at the bowl, which begins at 10 p.m., will benefit the American Diabetes Association.

“Not many events in the Greek community have fraternities and sororities competing against each other,” said Sigma Nu President Jordan Peterson in an e-mail. “This is a fun opportunity for both sides to come together and compete for a good cause.”

Peterson said his fraternity is hoping for a large turnout at the event this year.

“Last year the crowd really got into the game, so hopefully this year more people will be able to come out and enjoy it,” Peterson said.

Delta Gamma raises record amount for charity

The Delta Gamma sorority raised $8,000 for charity at its annual Anchor Bowl event last week.

“While I don’t have a record of how much we’ve made throughout all the past years, I do know we exceeded our original ‘goal’ for this year by over $4,000,” director of the event Melissa Bradley said in an e-mail.

Money raised went to Columbia Light House for the Blind, an organization which focuses on helping the visually impaired maintain an active life. Proceeds also went toward Delta Gamma scholarships for members who are especially helpful in the community.

Six sororities and 11 fraternities participated in the bowl. Events included penny wars, a date auction, skit night, an “Anchor Man” competition and a fraternity football competition.

The Sigma Phi Epsilon won the bowl this year, earning $800 for the cause.

“Anchor Bowl is a time when the Greek community truly shines,” Bradley said. “When it’s all said and done its nice knowing that no matter who won it all goes to a good cause.”
