RIT Fraternity Shaves Heads, Raises Funds For National Cancer Charity

Follow RITNEWS on Twitter Rochester Institute of Technology fraternity members are helping cancer victims by taking more than ‘just a little off the top.’

The brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon will host “Shave-A-Thon” to raise money for cancer victims 2-4 p.m. Saturday, April 29 in the Fireside Lounge at RIT’s Student Alumni Union, The fundraiser allows members of both the RIT and Rochester communities to donate money to individual brothers. Whoever donates the most to each brother will have the opportunity to shave that person’s head.

All proceeds from the event will go to Gilda’s Club, an international organization that focuses on living with cancer and supporting those who are affected by the disease. Sigma Alpha Epsilon hopes to pass the totals at last year’s inaugural Shave-A-Thon, which raised more than $500 and left 20 fraternity members without hair.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Kyle Hadcock, president of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at (603) 548-3686.
