Philanthropy

  • Pulling For the Kids

     

     

    For our main philanthropy, we hold an annual tractor pull each spring.  This event has been a major success; in 7 years we have raised over $50,000 dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  This event requires the effort of the entire chapter and is a great brotherhood building experience.  Putting on the tractor pull also requires money which comes through donations, a lot of donations from businesses and individuals willing to help out with a great cause.  If you have any questions about making a donation, please contact Alex Cunningham (270) 970-0816, or by email at acunningham5@murraystate.edu.  We hope to continue this tradition for many years, making it a staple of Alpha Omega. 

     

    This year's pull is scheduled for May 3, 2014 at the Murray/ Calloway County Fair Grounds.
