SAE, Sigma Chi Face Off in Charity Bowl

-

Sigma Alpha Epsilon played Sigma Phi Epsilon in the past Charity Bowl game at Southern Miss.SAE will have its 18th annual Charity Bowl philanthropy event Friday at 5 p.m. in M.M Roberts Stadium. The proceeds from the event will go to support the Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp for children and adults with disabilities.

The University of Southern Mississippi’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity is preparing for its 18th annual Charity Bowl philanthropy event Friday. Proceeds from the Charity Bowl event will go to benefit the Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp for children and adults with disabilities.

The event is essentially a full-pad football game between SAE and the highest bidding fraternity on the row. This year, the highest bidding fraternity that will compete against SAE is Sigma Chi. According SAE’s philanthropy chair, Blake Coco, money is raised through sponsorship sales, spirit links and jambalaya at the fraternity’s first ever CiviJam Festival, which included a day of live music and games.

Our chapter takes great pride in our philanthropy event and we look forward to Charity Bowl each spring,” Coco said. “We are optimistic and hope to exceed last year’s mark of $7250 that will benefit the Civitan Camp.”

Likewise, Delta Gamma Charity Bowl queen nominee, Madeline Kuluz, said that she and her sorority are eager for the event as well.

The men of SAE have adopted a wonderful, local philanthropy that truly changes lives,” Kuluz said. “Civitan Camp gives special needs children and adults a chance to belong, feel loved and have the best times of their lives. I can’t wait to see how much money the (guys) raise for this noble organization.”

Coco said ultimately every aspect of the event, from the Charity Bowl game to CiviJam or to serving campers, is more than something SAE does to simply raise money. It is, however, a way that the chapter has been able to build relationships with campers and serve them selflessly.

All of our members leave the field feeling that we accomplished something, and that can be attributed to the hard work of everyone coming together for a great cause,” Coco said.

The event will begin Friday at 5 p.m. at the M.M Roberts Stadium.
