Gamma Xi, the University of Wyoming’s chapter of the Sigma Chi fraternity, will host its first Cowboy Breakfast Sunday, Nov. 17.
The event will take place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Sigma Chi house, located at 1629 E. Fraternity Row. Biscuits and gravy will be available for $5 per serving or $10 for unlimited servings, and cinnamon rolls will be $2 each. All proceeds from the breakfast will go to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.
“This fundraiser is all about Huntsman. We want to highlight all the good that it does,” says Dylan Miller, Gamma Xi philanthropy chair. “Everyone who comes to the Cowboy Breakfast can feel good about helping work to end cancer. It’s a really great cause.”
The Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) opened in 1995 on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City. John Huntsman, a Sigma Chi alumnus, created the center in hopes to end cancer. HCI is a state-of-the art cancer hospital that serves 142,000 patients annually and has 177 separate research teams.
In 2015, the Sigma Chi fraternity decided to honor Huntsman by making an $11 million pledge to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, the research fundraising arm of the institute. Sigma Chi nationally has raised $8.4 million of its pledge so far.
