OSWEGO, NY – Phi Lambda Phi held their fourth annual bachelor auction in Marano Campus Center to raise funds for breast cancer on Friday November 10th. The sorority is required to throw at least one big fundraising event and the sorority said they thought that an auction would be a fun and exciting way to get people involved.
Event organizer Emily Fernandez said that the idea behind the auction started with one alumna back in 2015.
“She decided that she would start an auction to donate all the money to breast cancer. I don’t why she did it but I know if I were to organize us and start it from scratch I would chose breast cancer also because it’s such a prevalent issue in women today,” Fernandez said.
The sorority garnered brothers from other fraternities to participate in the auction which they will receive community service in return. Additionally, the sorority had a raffle at the auction to give away prizes to their audience.
The proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
