Boca Raton, FL –The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity kicked off its annual philanthropy event to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties on October 30, 2019. The main event was held at Florida Atlantic University in the Carole and Barry Kaye Auditorium. The fraternity has been supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters for many years, and in 2017 alone they raised over $20,000! This year, sororities from the College of Panhellenic Association competed in a dance competition to ‘win the throne’ and raise funds in support of youth mentoring. The back to back winner, sorority Delta Phi Epsilon, helped raise needed funds and brought great enthusiasm to the event.
Nationally, Sigma Phi Epsilon has selected Big Brothers Big Sisters of America as their single national philanthropic and service-learning partner due to the positive alignment of both agencies’ principles and values. Sigma Phi Epsilon and the American College Fraternity, believe in the Balanced Man which means that social fraternities are important to strengthen the college experience, but the social aspects of fraternal life should not exceed the necessity of great academics, service learning, philanthropy and brotherhood, for those are essential to the experience.
