The UCF Interfraternity Council will be hosting their first Frats at Bat Philanthropy event on December 1 at the UCF intramural softball fields to raise money for Knight-thon and the Children’s Miracle Network.

“I hope the outcome turns out to be a great event that we can establish as our annual philanthropy and bring IFC together,” IFC President Mike Irene said.

Frats at Bat will consist of 15 fraternities and three rounds. The first round will have 15 fraternities, the second round will have eight fraternities, and the final round will have four fraternities.

“It’s IFC’s first philanthropy ever. After talking to a lot of my brothers and other people in Greek life we thought a homerun derby would work great. We decided on Knight-thon and the Children’s Miracle Network because we are a part of UCF and we wanted to put as much effort to support Knight-thon,” IFC philanthropy chair Bradley Thompson said.

Good Vibes Clothing, Home of the Sole, Evolve Group, Party Tutor and Citro will all be sponsoring the event this upcoming Saturday. There will be music by DJ Chizzle, a member of Sigma Chi fraternity.

“It’s awesome to be djing an event for such a positive cause. All of the proceeds go to knight-thon and the Children’s Miracle Network. This is a time where every fraternity comes together as one for an exciting, yet beneficial event. It should be a lot of fun with great music, food, and friends,” DJ Chizzle said.

Fifteen fraternities will be participating in the philanthropy event. Alpha Epsilon Pi, Beta Theta Pi, Delta Sigma Phi, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Lambda Theta Phi, Phi Delta Theta, Fiji, Sigma Nu, Sigma Pi, Sigma Chi, Theta Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon and Zeta Beta Tau have all selected one brother to participate.

“I think that it’ll turn out great for being IFC’s first ever philanthropy and has the potential over the years to be one of the best philanthropies for UCF and Knight-thon the school has seen,” Thompson said.
