Northwestern University Class of 2016

The brothers of Sigma Chi Fraternity, Omega Chapter at Northwestern University hosted the first ever “Fitzerdash!” to benefit the Mortel Family Foundation. Named after Northwestern’s football coach, Pat Fitzgerald (or Fitz), the event consisted of a tailgate themed obstacle course. The brothers also came together to advertise the event, referee the obstacle course, grill and sell lunch, and host a screening of the Northwestern football game at the chapter house. The event was a success, bringing together Northwestern students to both cheer for the Wildcats and raise money for a great cause. A special shout-out goes to brother Patrick Franks who previously worked with the Mortel Family Foundation. In the end, the brothers of Sigma Chi were able to make a donation of over $900!
