Fraternal Organizations to Raise Money to Fight Breast Cancer

– Florida Tech’s Alpha Phi Fraternity, Gamma Phi Beta Sorority and Phi Sigma Sigma Fraternity are pleased to present Panhellenic’s Annual Big Man on Campus
fundraiser on Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Gleason Performing Arts Center. The event proceeds will support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fund of Central

Fraternity men will compete in five areas to find out who really is the Big Man on the Florida Tech campus. The competitions are in fundraising, beach
wear, talent, business attire, and interview questions. Sorority women will coach and assist the contestants. The competitor earning the most points will
be awarded a crown and deemed “Man Enough to Wear Pink.”

Keys will be on sale at the event for a chance to win a Tiffany and Company silver bracelet. Only five keys will open an outer box and one lucky winner
will have the key to open the inner box. Tickets to the event are already on sale for $2 each.

Panhellenic has also begun educating the campus on breast cancer. In October, pink ribbons will be distributed to the campus population to encourage
students, faculty and staff to support breast cancer research. Pink bracelets are also for sale at $2 each.

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 the age of 36. The foundation is an international organization with a network of volunteers working through local Affiliates, such as the Central
Florida Affiliate (established in 1999). All of the affiliates “fight to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research,
education, screening and treatment.”
