Vanderbilt Sigma Chi Derby Days 2015


name dollars donors

This year is the 87th running of our chapter's Derby Days, and we are excited to kick things off the week of March 28th. Each spring Vanderbilt Panhellenic joins forces with Sigma Chi in an array of competitions to help raise money for charity. Together we have raised over $330,000 in the past 8 years. Derby Days 2015 will not only benefit our choice organization, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), but also 50% of online fundraising and Penny Wars money will be donated to each sorority’s selected philanthropy.* Here is a quick background on our chapter’s deep and lasting connection to LLS:

In the fall of 2011 an active member of our fraternity was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and the impact of the disease was clearly felt within our chapter and throughout Vanderbilt’s Greek community. His fight took a special place in our hearts and we were inspired to honor him by using our annual philanthropic event to contribute to blood cancer research and the pursuit of finding a cure. We have seen the significant impact of LLS’s commitment to cancer patients first hand, and we look forward to partnering with LLS for the third consecutive year as we continue our fundraising efforts.

*As a result of this new format, donations are originally being sent by Razoo to Vanderbilt University. The University will then write checks to each chapter's selected philanthropy on behalf of the participating organizations.
