Delta Chi Missouri Chapter Jimmy V Gala
Since 2006 the Delta Chi Fraternity has partnered with the V Foundation for Cancer Research to further the cause for a victory over cancer. Delta Chi chapters around the country have raised over $1,000,000 since 2006.
The Delta Chi Missouri Chatper comprised of roughly 120 brothers have been a strong contributor to the V Foundation. During our 2016 fundraising campaign, the Missouri Chapter raised over $8,000 for the V Foundation. After assessing our accomplishments in 2016 we realized we could do more. As a chapter, we made the decision to nearly double our efforts and set a goal to raise $15,000 for the V Foundation. We then went to work.
After meeting with our members we decided to host our first annual Jimmy V Gala at the University of Missouri Reynolds Alumni Center. This black tie event featured a silent auction with items donated from the Mizzou Athletics Department, a dinner, and speakers from across the community. We hosted over 200 guests at our inaugural gala including local business owners, campus administration, student body leaders, and state elected officials. At the end of the night we were proud to announce that we had raised over $18,000 for the V Foundation in honor of our family members and friends impacted by cancer.
