VALDOSTA — The Lambda Mu chapter of Sigma Chi at Valdosta State University recently hosted Derby Days 2023, raising nearly $8,000 for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation and collecting more than 5,000 canned food items for Second Harvest of South Georgia.
“Derby Days is Sigma Chi’s week-long, annual philanthropy event,” said Samuel C. McFarland of Valdosta, who serves as Sigma Chi tribune and president of the Interfraternity Council at VSU. He anticipates earning a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Economics in 2024.
“Philanthropy is an integral part of Sigma Chi. We believe that bringing a community together to help those in need makes that community stronger. We truly enjoyed working with local businesses and our peers to help fight cancer and end hunger.”
