In October, the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega partnered with the sisters of Alpha Sigma Tau to present a teeter-tottering fundraising event to support Blood Water Mission.
The see-saw was placed outside the Bell Tower for two days while members of both organizations participated in the game to raise money.
The groups partner every year. Previously they have sat and slept outside for 48 hours for an event known as Couch Potato. AST’s New Member Education Emily Robins said the groups wanted to do something other than Couch Potato because they wanted participate in an event that could raise more awareness than sitting for two days.
Robins’s said her favorite part of the event was getting to know the new members from ATO while getting to see her new members become a part of something great. “I loved seeing my girls participate in something that the whole campus caught wind of, it gave them a chance to show their presence on campus and to let the student body know that we are here to make a difference,” Robins said.
The organizations collectively raised more than $800 for Blood Water Mission.
