Florida Tech Greek Organizations Raise Money for Breast Cancer Fund

MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology sorority Gamma Phi Beta and fraternities Alpha Phi and Phi Sigma Sigma will present Panhellenic’s Annual “Big Man on Campus” fundraiser. The event is set for Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Gleason Performing Arts Center on campus. The proceeds from this event will go to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fund of Central Florida.

Fraternity members and other campus leaders will battle to find out who really is the big man on the Florida Tech campus. The contestants will compete in categories such as fundraising, beach wear, talent, and business attire. They will also answer interview questions. Sorority members will serve as coaches to help assist the participants. The person who accumulates the most points will be awarded a crown and the title “Man Enough to Wear Pink.”

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died of breast cancer at 36 years of age. An international organization, the foundation consists of a network of volunteers working through local affiliates. The Central Florida Affiliate was established in 1999 and serves the nine counties of Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia. All of the affiliates “fight to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research, education, screening and treatment.”

The event is open and free to the public but donations will be accepted. For more information call Katherine Frost at (240) 271-1114 or send e-mail to kfrost@fit.edu.
