On the week of April 16th, the gentlemen of Sigma Phi Epsilon from SDSU, UCSD, and USD will combine their efforts and hold the third annual Sig Ep Sun Cup.
The event brings together all 25 Panhellenic sororities inSan Diego, making it one of the largest philanthropic events held in the city. This year, the Greek communities of all three schools hope to raise over $30,000 dollars to benefit the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF) – LHON Project Fund. Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON) is a rare hereditary disease that causes a person to loose their central vision; unfortunately this disease does not have a cure.
The actual event, which is held on Sunday the 22nd, consists of a beach soccer tournament, a sand castle building competition and a tug-a war contest amongst the sororities. With music, food, sun and great company the event promises to be a huge success.
Though the events efforts are heavily enforced within the Greek system, students and outside community members are welcome to participate and donate in any way possible. For questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that the passion of Sigma Phi Epsilon does not go unnoticed and theSan Diegocommunity unites to help benefit an amazing cause.
