Every semester fraternities and sororities alike put together events with one thing in mind, trying to make a difference. These events are called philanthropies, and they have become a vital part of Greek organizations all over America.
Here at WIU the men of Alpha Gamma Sigma take this seriously, and we truly want to make a difference in any way we can. Bags, or what some people call, “corn hole” has been a staple in Midwestern lives and tailgates everywhere. Understanding the popularity of the game, AGS used that to their advantage to attract people throughout the university to the event.
This semester, we will be having the Tenth Annual AGS for Bags, and like so many in the past it will be benefiting testicular cancer by forwarding all proceeds to the Testicular Cancer Society. The event itself will be held on October 29th, 2016 from 12 P.M.-3 P.M. at the AGS house. Teams cost $30 prior and $40 at the event. The winning team will walk away with their very own AGS for Bags champion bag board set. If you come up short in the tournament you still have a chance to take home some bragging rights. For only $5 you can enter yourself in the famous Turkey Testicle Eating Contest. We will however, be selling concessions of chili, burgers, hot dogs, chips, soda, and water to our less adventurous guests.
On behalf of everyone from Alpha Gamma Sigma, we hope many of you can take a break from your busy semesters and harvest season, to enjoy some fun with our bags tournament and help raise money and awareness of testicular cancer!
