When most people see the words “Smoke Out” there are a few different and usually illegal thoughts that come to mind. These thoughts are from the truth when speaking about the “Smoke Out for Lung Cancer” that Alpha Delta Pi holds as an annual philanthropy event. The event will the fourth consecutive year that Alpha Delta Pi has teamed up with Delta Tau Delta to sell BBQ plates for $5.
The event will take place on March 10, 2010. Delta Tau Delta will be slow cooking several hundred pounds of pork that will be pared with baked beans and sweet tea to make a plated meal to eat at the Georgia Southern RAC Pavilion or taken to go.
The proceeds that are raised are given to the American Cancer Fund to help in with the finances of the research that they do. This is a great cause and a way to get involved in the support of a good cause and to see the Greek Life at Georgia Southern more than an outlet for parties.
Greek Life at Georgia Southern is 11 percent and growing with each year that passes. They are become a large organization as a whole and as they grow there is an emergence of an awareness of image on campus and the surrounding community. With this awareness there are starting to be more philanthropic events such as Smoke Out for Lung Cancer, War of the Wings ( Kappa Delta), Big Man on Campus ( Zeta Tau Alpha). All of these events raise money for cause worthy organizations.
If the Greek Community can keep this up, they are well on their way to changing their image as it relates to the other students and members of the community.
