Similar to our service partner, Movember, the Jed Foundation is a non-profit that strives to protect emotional health and prevent suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults.

Behind the sponsors and a silent auction, the chapter raised the most funds in the annual event. The sponsors of the event were all parents of brothers within the chapter and was during the chapter’s yearly fall semester Parents Weekend.

“It’s considerably a high amount than what we were able to raise for our philanthropy last semester, so we’re pretty happy with the way it turned out,” Eminent Archon Thompson Rudolph said.

The silent auction included a lake house weekend getaway; one family donated a hunting trip, billboard space, a football signed by Georgia Tech’s head football coach Geoff Collins and merchandise signed by professional golfer Harrison English.

“We raised four times as much as our most recent Casino Night,” Rudolph said. “It was big-time for us.”

The chapter in total raised $17,000. The chapter plans to use $5,500 as part of their ‘Capital Campaign’ fund, which is a fund to help kickstart renovations for their house on campus.
