“Oswego Community Cares Day,” a charity event for cancer hosted by the brothers of Tau Kappa Epsilon, was held Sunday at the American Foundry.
TKE brother and fraternity public relations manager Stanley Dorelien has been planning the event since May in an effort to bridge the gap between college students and the Oswego community.
Re-founded two years ago, TKE has been looking to create an event for a good cause and works extensively with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. One of the founders of St. Jude’s, Danny Thomas, was once a TKE brother so they strongly support their organization. Dorelien said a number of the brothers had a lot of cancer in their families.
