Penn State IFC Needs Your Help in Charity Competition

If there’s two things Penn Staters love, it’s philanthropy and online voting competitions focused on school pride. Mix the two together and the Penn State community becomes a potent force that can’t be beaten.

That’s what the Penn State Interfraternity Council hopes, at least. The organization is spearheading the effort to bring Penn State to victory in the SportsBam! Campus Madness competition. Penn State has already reached the Elite 8 against Kansas State and needs our help to advance to the Final Four and raise more money for charity.

“Penn State is the only university competing in this competition for charity,” said IFC Communications VP Jordan Rolon. “We are competing to raise money for the Centre County United Way — an organization that assists families in need all across Centre County. We have currently made it to the Elite Eight, beating Purdue last week, bringing our total to $1,350.”

All you need to do to help Penn State, the IFC, and United Way is go to the competition website, fill out the form, and enter psu as the referral code. If you don’t enter psu, Penn State won’t get credit. Make sure to uncheck the box at the bottom of the registration page to opt out of spam promotional offers (nobody needs that shit).

This round of voting lasts until July 21, so there’s plenty of time to help out. If Penn State wins the whole competition, over $10,000 will be raised for Centre County United Way, and all it takes is a one click from you!
