Children’s hospital can scramble less for charitable monies, thanks to IUS fraternity

As daily temperatures in Southern Indiana continue to climb, members of the IUS chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) can rest in the shade knowing that golf helped grow children’s medical research funds this year. 

The fraternity’s annual golf scramble on April 15 raised $3,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. TKE members, alumni, and supporters spent the day at Champions Pointe Golf Course competing for a worthy cause.  

The Alpha Phi sorority members helped organize and run the event. Both organizations have worked together to support philanthropy.  

“It was a really fun experience being able to bring a lot of alumni and friends together to a beautiful course to raise money for a great cause,” said Myron Meade, the Vice President of TKE. 

TKE’s annual golf scramble has become more than a well-known event that raises funds for worthy causes. It promotes unity within the Greek community, too. The fraternity’s partnership with Alpha Phi was a recent collaboration. The TKE brothers had previously supported the sorority’s “Heartthrob” talent show, which raised money for women’s heart health.
