Hot Tubbing For Charity

Sigma Phi Epsilon members Jim Garcia (left) and Zach Robinson sit in a hot tub outside the Union on Wednesday. The fraternity held its fourth annual “Tub-A-thon” from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Part of its Philanthropy Week activities, the day-long event included a hot dog barbecue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and music.

The fraternity raised $742.83, all of it coming from student donations or purchased hot dogs.

All the money will go to the Cystic Fibrosis of Utah Foundation, said Sigma Epsilon member Zach Robinson.

“It was a fun day, and everyone here today was awesome. The student population really made this happen,” Robinson said.

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes the body to produce mucus in cells lining the lungs and pancreas. The disease affects approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States.

In previous years, the “Tub-A-Thon” has been held in front of the Sigma Epsilon house, but with the cooperation of the Union Board, the fraternity was able to move behind the Union.

“The U Board was incredible in allowing us to use this location,” Robinson said.
