Each year, Sigma Nu partners with Sigma Phi Epsilon to host a benefit concert, named Sunset Revival, in support of a non-profit organization. On April 30, 2011, the Sunset Revival concert raised more than $1,500 which was donated to the Sunset Zoo in Manhattan, Kansas. Sigma Nu Philanthropy Chair, Ben Post, BK 1576, and Sigma Phi Epsilon Philanthropy Chair, C. J. Heinz organized the event with approximately 1,300 in attendance.
If this House Could Talk
On a Sunday morning in the Spring 2011 semester, we participated in an event through HandsOn K-State to serve the Manhattan community called "If This House Could Talk." During this event, members of Sigma Nu served as docents to historic homes along Laramie and Thurston to raise awareness and support community efforts to get the area recognized as a historic landmark by the city of Manhattan, KS. Twenty-six members of the house participated and served a total of 78 hours on this project.
T. Russell Reitz Manhattan Regional Animal Shelter
This semester (Fall 2011), we volunteered with the T. Russell Reitz Manhattan Regional animal shelter. Twenty-three members of the house visited various businesses in Manhattan to collect donations in the form of dog food, cat food, money, etc. for the shelter. As a whole Sigma Nu collected supplies and cash exceeding a value of $4,000. The house served a total of 69 hours of service on this project.
