Sigma Phi Epsilon Washington Alpha's philanthropy in the fall of 2019 will be a week-long Queen of Hearts fundraising competition between sorority women here at Washington State University.
The philanthropy will benefit the Portland, Oregon chapter of Light the Night - a fundraising event for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that specializes in saving the lives of cancer patients today by providing patient support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments, and pioneering the most promising cancer research anywhere.
The organization played an integral role in the lifesaving treatment provided to Brenna Messner - the younger sister of SigEp brother Will Messner.
If you would like to support this philanthropy, consider running in the Color Run! This event takes place Oct. 5, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. on the Valley Road Play Fields in Pullman, Washington. Registration for the event can be found here. Participation is 100% free and donation based.
You can buy shirts at the event for $25 to support Brenna as all revenue from sales will be donated back to Light the Night. If you are not interested in running or cannot make it, please consider donations of any amount can be made through our chapter Venmo account "@WSUSigEp". Donations can also be made in person at the event through cash or card.
ALL donations made to our fraternity's philanthropy will then be transferred directly to Light the Night and Brenna Messner's personal fundraising goal of $50,000.
Light the Night aims to raise $1 million for leukemia and lymphoma treatments and is almost halfway there. It would mean the world for your help in reaching this goal and saving the lives of other loved ones too.
