Greek life is know at Colorado State University for their Philanthropies, raising money for local organizations. Sigma Phi Epsilon, a fraternity on campus, raises their money in a very unique and fun way. Sig Ep holds a bachelor auction. All male students at CSU are encouraged to participate by creating a performance that causes women to bid for a date with them. The Bachelor Auction event was to raise money for the Boys and Girls Club of Larimer County.
Some of the men went for hundred of dollars, all of which were donated. The performances included some dancing, singing, poetry and a question and answer session. Sig Ep has been putting on this charity for 15 years. The auction included formal wear, a dessert bar, and the chance to win a date with the bachelor of your choice, all for a good cause. This event has been a very successful and popular philanthropy for Sig Ep over the past years at CSU.
