February 17th, 2018 - Today was full day for our brothers as we attended multiple philanthropic events to support various causes. At the Alpha Tau Omega house there was IFC's annual Chilifest, where we enjoyed some delicious chili and gave our donations that will benefit the University's Women and Gender Resource Center. There was also the annual Crawfish for CASA at the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority house. The money raised here will go to the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) which supports and promotes court-appointed advocates for abused and neglected children. Also taking place throughout the day was the annual University of Alabama Dance Marathon. This 13.1 hour fundraising event is a fun atmosphere which encourages dancing and donations during the entire event. Proceeds from this event benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals which is a non-profit organization driven by the goal to care for and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
