This Saturday, October 26, Sigma Nu is hosting Hot Rods for Heros, an antique car show to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
This event will take place in the Stephenson Hall Parking Lot and on the TMB lawn from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sigma Nu’s main philanthropy, the Wounded Warrior Project, raises awareness about how to aid injured service members.
Besides the antique car show, there will be inflatables and games, a raffle for a 3 day and 2 night stay in a beachfront condo in Orange Beach, Ala., along with live music from The Brooke Daniel Band and the Jacksonville High School Jazz Band.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
“They’re people who have given their lives for a greater cause and that’s what we try to do everyday we live as men of Sigma Nu,” said Sigma Nu brother Kenneth Smith.
Jason Sumner, former SGA president and Sigma Nu Alumni, believes it’s an opportunity to give back to the soldiers who fight for our country.
“This is [also] our way to give back to JSU and the community.” Sumner said.
“This isn’t something that we just planned to do, we’ve been working on it [HotRods for Heros] since before the beginning of the semester.” said Smith.
He and Torsten Dryden, Sigma Nu’s president, have been working on this event for the better half 2013.
Sigma Nu is hoping to start a trend here at Jacksonville State University.
“No one really has done this before,” said Smith.
They hope to make it an annual event for JSU and the community.
