Spring Philanthropy Update

On Wednesday, April 23rd, Tri-Kap hosted "Xi Man" with Alpha Xi Delta sorority. The annual event pitted 13 fraternity presidents against each other in a variety of entertaining trivia and skills-based competitions. President Anka Tezcan '15 showed everybody why Tri-Kap represents the best of brain and brawn and spirit at Dartmouth,  finishing second in the competition following a contested decision in the final dance off.  All proceeds from the event benefit Autism Speaks, an organization that funds research geared towards understanding, treating, and preventing autism while also increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders and advocating for the needs of patients and their families. The event was a huge success, with over 200 attendees packed in to the great hall, and all having a great time.

On Friday April 25th, Manav Raj ’15, Andy Solares ’15, Josh Schoenbart ’16, and Brian White ’15 cooked a ‘ghetti and chicken parmesan dinner for some 20 needy Upper Valley residents at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Hanover. The event was sponsored by Tri-Kap and hosted by Students Fighting Hunger, a non-profit that works to provide meals for local families struggling to meet dietary needs while also raising awareness about national and global hunger-related issues. Each brother enjoyed the opportunity to engage with Upper Valley residents and learn about the lifestyle and problems associated with hunger. Our Savior Luther Church’s pastor, Reverend Michael Thomas, commented on the success of the event and invited us to return soon!
