On Sunday, March 23, the brothers of Tennessee Alpha at Vanderbilt University joined together to host the annual Webb Memorial Pig Roast, raising $22,650 for the local ALS Association chapter in Nashville. The event is held in honor of Vann Webb, a brother of Tennessee Alpha who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer during his sophomore year at Vanderbilt and died shortly thereafter.
The event overlapped with the last day of Dad’s Weekend and featured a country band, a cornhole tournament, and a roast pig courtesy of brother Connor Caldwell. Fundraising efforts by brothers, alumni support, and sponsorships from other Greek chapters helped make the event a success. The money donated will be used by the ALS Association to provide needed equipment to people with Lou Gehrig’s disease in the Middle Tennessee area.
