Brothers, as we have been busy with the business of Omega the 8th we have overlooked St
Jude. We are less than 10 days away from the drive ending and we are not close to the goal
we set. Several of our Brothers have benefited from St Jude’s generosity in helping their
family members. Through our donations many kids throughout the country have been given
outstanding medical care to children with cancer. The children have the privilege of getting
surgery, medication, rehabilitation, hospital stays and more free of charge. The family incurs no
cost for the treatment given to their child. This is where we as an organization come in. Our
donations keep the doors open and it affords families the opportunity to get the care needed.
Each District has begun raising funds for the St Jude. Currently the goal is to raise $150,000
as a fraternity. The 8th District has set a goal of $6,000. We are currently asking every brother in the
District to donate $10. How do we donate? Chapters may choose to donate as a collective
chapter or brothers may donate individually or both. Brothers can consolidate their funds and
the KRS can submit the donation on behalf of the chapter. If a chapter does donate be sure to
also include the state of which you belong so that we may keep a record and update the district
on the progress of the fundraiser. Brother, the 8th has never been the District to donate the least
amount of money to St Jude. Let’s not start now.
There are several kids and families who have benefited from the generosity of the 8th District
