Fraternity Raises More Than $2,000 for Charity

09.6.2013

HPU High Point UniversityHIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 6, 2013 – High Point University’s Kappa Sigma chapter recently held its most successful philanthropy week in history, raising more than $2,000 in its Military Heroes Campaign benefiting The Fisher House Foundation. The foundation provides a home for families of wounded soldiers to stay in while their loved ones recover and recuperate.

The week included a speech from Lorie Bragg, Ft. Bragg Fisher House; a screening of the film, “The Act of Valor”; a fundraising night at Southern Roots restaurant in Jamestown; and a wiffleball tournament.

“Our intent was to give back to those who risked their lives, day in and day out, to provide a better tomorrow for our country,” says Casey Hiers, HPU senior and Kappa Sigma philanthropy chair. “It was an incredibly rewarding experience, and I couldn’t be more proud of our organization. It was a collective effort and truly moving to see so many people come out and support this incredible cause.”

The fraternity plans to host a handful of additional philanthropy events, in the upcoming months.
