This year's Relay For Life was a success for Lambda Chi Alpha. The event took place in the Alumni Sports & Recreation Center on April 5, 2019 and was hosted by Colleges against Cancer. Our brothers were able to raise upwards of $1,200 in the annual event. Our team's success would not be possible without the dedication from our Relay Captain, Jack Palmeri, and all of the brothers who donated and actively participated in the event. Hopefully next year we can raise even more for the fight against cancer!

On February 25th brothers held our second annual Fat Sandwiches event at the house where we made Fat Sandwiches to sell to the local community. We we're able to raise a total of $1322 in just under 3 hours of selling sandwiches! The Fat Brandon was the highest selling sandwich, selling a total of 47 sandwiches, and a total of 154 sandwiches were sold all together! Thanks to Evan Schulze for planning the event and all of the other brothers who helped to cook food, make sandwiches, deliver them, and supported the event.
All of the money raised was donated to Relay for Life putting our chapter at a total of $3489 and pushing us into first place on campus ahead of The Relay Committee ($1894) and Alpha Gamma Delta ($1220).

Every year Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute hosts a Relay for Life walk in the Armory. Lambda Chi Alpha has been a part of this relay for many years and hosts various events throughout the semester to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This year the brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha have planned on bringing back many of those past events. Our weekly event to help raise money is called "Lambda Cocoa" where free hot chocolate is given out to students in return for donations to our relay for life total. In addition to this, the brothers plan to bring back the very successful "Fat Sandwiches" philanthropy event from the Spring 2016 semester. This event raised over $1000 for cancer research in a short 2 hours. Two separate dates are being planned for this event with an increased supply of food and more volunteers to help raise money. In addition to these events, brothers will be canning outside stores, raising money on their own, and a host of other things in order to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Help us reach our Goal of $6000 this year by donating below!
