Tonight's Wheel of Fortune Features a Frater with a Cause
Over 5,000 episodes have aired for the popular TV show known as Wheel of Fortune. Today, January 27th, NBC will air an episode involving Frater Leonardo Cacioppo of the Mu-Upsilon chapter at Illinois State University.
Although no one but Lee knows that outcome of tonight's episode; Tekes everywhere are coming together to watch a fellow Frater in his pursue of fortune. Today is a day to hopefully see a Frater "solve the puzzle" but it is also a day that Frater Cacioppo does not want to be about himself.
In his hometown of Wheaton, Illinois, Leonardo will be having a watch party at a local business this evening. The business will be donating 15% of all purchases during the event to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Frater Cacioppo is dedicating tonight as a day to remember the life of his chapter brother Patrick Cragg who passed into the Chapter Eternal on May 5th, 2012.
"This event not only goes to benefit the foundation, but also to remember our friend and brother, Patrick Cragg. He is sorely missed, and I'm just happy that I can do something to help an organization that will help countless other people" said Frater Lee.
Leonardo Cacioppo is an active member of the Illinois State Alumni Association. He graduated from ISU in December of 2010.
