Fraternity and Sorority Life hosted the first ever Billiken Wiffleball Classic on Sept. 28, during the 2013 Homecoming and Family Weekend celebration. The tournament was a philanthropic event, with all proceeds going to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.
The six teams that participated are Delta Gamma, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Theta Kappa Alpha, Gamma Phi Beta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Kappa Delta. Awards have been given to the first-place winners in the tournament, Delta Gamma, and the team with the most involvement at the tournament, Kappa Alpha Theta. TKE came in a close second, both in the tournament and participation. They battled it out with the ladies and families of Delta Gamma in the championship game. TKE also helped staff grill hot dogs and burgers that were sold to players, families, and other spectators.
The Greek community raised and donated $250, all of which was donated to Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center.
All teams that participated were very much appreciated and will be recognized by chapter name in Fraternity and Sorority Life's donation to Cardinal Glennon, as well as within their national organizations for their philanthropic efforts
