HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 20, 2016 – High Point University’s Zeta Tau Alpha sorority held its ninth annual Big Man on Campus event and raised more than $5,600 for breast cancer education and awareness. At the event, male representatives from various sports teams, clubs and Greek organizations competed for the title of Big Man on Campus.
“Big Man on Campus is one of our favorite annual philanthropy events,” said Caylee Henderson, sorority president. “We love being able to involve so many different campus organizations in a fun and very entertaining event in an effort to raise money for our national philanthropy, breast cancer education and awareness.”
HPU student and Beta Theta Pi member Drew Ingle was crowned Big Man on Campus 2016 after competing in front of more than 550 people who attended the event.
The night included talent and swimwear rounds, a formalwear portion with a Q&A and a group dance featuring all competitors.
“It is an honor to be crowned Zeta Tau Alpha’s Big Man on Campus,” said Ingle. “It’s an even bigger honor to raise so much money for a disease that affects so many lives.”
“This event wouldn’t be possible without the organizations that sponsor a representative – to all of you we say thank you for joining in our fight to beat breast cancer. It means more than you know,” said Henderson. “The entire night was beyond enjoyable and we couldn’t be more excited to see who wins the crown next year!”
