Our Annual Philanthropy event is the Chi Phi Chili Cook-off

This fall semester the brothers of Chi Phi at Clemson University planned and hosted a Chili Cook-off philanthropy event on December 2, 2017, at the Pier at Clemson. The fraternity sponsored both Water Mission in Charleston, SC and The Boys and Girls Club in Greenville, SC. Water mission in Charleston, SC is an organization that does hurricane relief and water treatment for countries in need of fresh water. Raising money for them will give them more funds to help see their goals of installing pure water facilities in countries that don’t have the money or technology of their own to do so as well as their goals of helping as many people affected by the three most recent hurricanes that hit our nation the latter half of 2017. Raising money for the Boys and Girls Club, Chi Phi’s national philanthropic sponsored organization, in Greenville, SC, will give them more funds to help see their mission statement of enabling all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The event was a fun-filled morning with competitors coming with some delicious recipes and guests coming to sample the array of chilis. Out of the 17 competitors, Autumn Brown from CEDC, a creative inquiry that works hand in hand with water mission and various other water treatment organizations, won first place, with brother Mason Kingery in second, and the team of brothers, Gabe Nadolski and Sam Ferguson, in third place. Overall the event was a huge success! Over $800 was raised and a great time was had by all who participated in the event. We look forward to doing more events in the future.
