Greeks help others. Every chapter across the nation works hard to hold events to raise awareness and resources for their selected causes. These occasions also offer an opportunity for Greeks from different houses to come together to support each other’s efforts to make the world a better place. Here are some of the best philanthropy events of November 2016 from across the country.

The sisters of Kappa Alpha Theta at Texas A&M hosted their annual ThetaFest on November 11th to raise money for child abuse and neglect awareness. The event included a fajita dinner, live music by local artists, games, a craft section for kids and a silent auction. The event hosts over 1,500 people. Ten percent of the proceeds went to the Theta Foundation which helps fight against child abuse, as well as helping the education efforts of Theta members. The rest of the proceeds went to Scotty’s House, a children’s advocacy center. Members of Theta say the event is about more than just raising money, it’s about changing the perception of child abuse.

The Florida State University chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha paid tribute to their sister Morgan Carr one year after her death during their annual event “Race to Live.” The event is a race to raise money for breast cancer awareness. More than 1,000 runners participated, including many survivors of the disease. The event raised over $100,000 which was donated to various different cancer foundations in hopes of finding a cure.  
The members of Sigma Chi at Central Michigan University held their “Derby Days” on November 6th through the 11th to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. This year, the fraternity raised $16,300 for the organization, which is almost double of what had been earned in the past. 11 sororities participated in the event. The most popular event was the Derby Pageant. The beauty pageant cost $5 to enter and the contestants were judged by their answers to questions, their talents and their formal wear. The brothers also auctioned off pledges and other members during their date auction event, which earned $7,200
