Phi Sig rocks up $10K
After 24 hours of rocking in rocking chairs outside of Burt Kahn, the women of Phi Sigma Sigma’s raised $10,000 for the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, which directly benefits the National Kidney Foundation.
This year’s Rock-a-Thon, held from Oct. 22 to Oct. 23, was one of the best according to Rock-a-Thon Co-Chair Ivy LaPlante.
Phi Sigma Sigma and the Student Programming Board sponsored the event’s activities.
At 7 p.m., Voted Most Random, a band of five Quinnipiac students, performed covers or many popular songs, including The Starting Line’s “Best of Me” and Kesha’s “Tik Tok.” Ian Reibeisen, the band’s lead singer, felt personally connected to the event because his father is affected by kidney concerns.
From 8 p.m. to midnight, SPB organized activities such as dodgeball and karaoke, and aired episodes of “Glee,” a television series depicting a high school glee club.
Numerous prizes were raffled off, including a date with SGA President Lou Venturelli, a Glee basket and an Amazon Kindle.
Jack Lamson, senior member of Tau Kappa Epsilon, attended Rock-a-Thon for the first time this year.
“The event is so simple, but it works so well,” Lamson said.
