Quinnipiac’s Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter raised $9,000 for AIDS Project New Haven during the fraternity’s annual Hall Wars competition on Sept. 18.
Hall Wars is an Olympic-style competition for freshmen living in the Quinnipiac residence halls. Participants compete in a series of physical activities, such as playing kickball and taking part in a tug-of-war.
Since 2005, Sigma Phi Epsilon has raised and contributed more than $63,000 to charities that work to end the AIDS epidemic. AIDS Project New Haven provides education and comprehensive and holistic services to individuals infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.
“The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is modeled after the credo, ‘Building Balanced Leaders for the World’s communities,’” said Mark Turczak, a fraternity member and the event chair. “Our chapter is devoted to making an impact on the local, national and global communities as well. We work toward this goal every year by organizing the philanthropic event known as Hall Wars.”
