Zeta Tau Alpha BMOC
Organized by: Emily Tuttle
Philanthropy work is an important aspect of Greek life that is commonly overlooked. Zeta Tau Alpha has a national Philanthropy that supports Breast Cancer Awareness, Education, and now my chapter donates to research through Purdue's own cancer research facilities. Throughout the year, we as a chapter work to raise money leading up to our main philanthropy event, Big Man on Campus. BMOC is a talent competition that men from different fraternities on campus work year-long and put in countless hours leading to the event in March. The fraternity man who raises the most funds, awareness, and wins the talent competition is named the Big Man on Campus. The women of ZTA do much more than put on a talent show. We continuously work to raise the most awareness, and raise funds to support a national cause. Just last year, we raised over $124,000 that went directly to our philanthropy and this year we are trying to beat it. Breast cancer is an epidemic. Women are fighting for their lives. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. We cannot stop fighting. We have to continuously work until women stop losing their lives, until husbands are no longer losing their wives and children are no longer losing their mothers. We are fighting as fellow women to make 1 in 8, NONE in 8. No donation is too small. Every dollar counts.
