Kappa Sigma brothers at GSW shave heads to raise money for local woman battling breast cancer

The Kappa Sigma fraternity at Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) hosted their annual Shave to Save event on Thursday, October 29, 2020 where brothers and pledges shaved their heads in order to raise money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

All proceeds will be donated to Angela Smith, a GSW employee and Americus Rotary Club president, who is a breast cancer survivor.

“I am completely overwhelmed, humbled and honored to be named this year’s recipient of the Kappa Sigma Shave to Save event,” said Smith. “I have asked that any money raised go to the Phoebe Sumter Foundation and allocated to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center’s Oncology Clinic. I am so touched by this gesture from the young men of the Kappa Kappa Chapter of Kappa Sigma at GSW and hope others will consider supporting them in their fundraising efforts.”

Kappa Sigma President Zach Martin explained that keeping the decades-long tradition alive is important. “We have a few active brothers who have personally been affected by breast cancer so this event means a lot to them and their families.”

The brothers hope to raise $1,200 from their efforts. If you would like to contribute to the Shave to Save fundraiser, please contact Zach Martin at 229-938-0323.
