UTSA Tekes Raise $14,000 for St. Jude
The Pi-Theta chapter at the University of Texas San Antonio is the most recent group to raise the standard of fundraising for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The chapter raised an impressive $14,229 in its third annual Teke Week.
Chapter Prytanis Jeremy Mueller explains the concept behind Teke Week is to challenge local sororities on campus to see which group can raise the most money. The week consists of an opening dinner at Pericos, a local restaurant owned by a Pi-Theta alumnus, where 15 percent of proceeds goes toward St. Jude.
Events later in the week involve a Teke trivia segment and bake sale. On the last day, the sorority that raised the most money is named the winner. The winning sorority is then given the ability to pick three members of the Pi-Theta chapter to shave their heads.
For the second year in a row, the women of Phi Mu Fraternity were crowned champions. After all donations were counted, Teke Week raised a total of $14,229.
The Offices of the Grand Chapter congratulates the Pi-Theta chapter for its strong support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
