Sorority relations are always a top priority.

In addition to being the first day of Barndaze, today is also the founding day of Alpha Gamma Rho Sigma Chapter at Washington State University in 1921. 95 years down and many more yet to come.

Spring is an exciting time of the year for Sigma chapter because for the past 79 years it's always meant one thing; Barndaze. Barndaze is our annual 3-day philanthropy that can be traced back to its origins as a "Barn Dance" philanthropy in the 1930's, and has been held every year since. Every year we pick a different charity to fundraise for and for the past decade typically raise somewhere between $4,000 - $7,000 depending on the year. Some of the organizations in past years have been great charities like The Gleason Initiative Foundation for ALS treatment and research, and the Carlton Complex Assistance Network for victims of the Carlton Complex Fire. This year has a special meaning for the men of Sigma chapter. Britt Fishburn is a freshman of Sigma chapter who's mother, Lori Fishburn, was diagnosed with breast cancer in December. Like all mothers of AGR men, Lori is an incredibly strong woman and has been bravely undergoing chemotherapy to combat the cancer. But being a brother in Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity means that you never have to fight alone, and by extension his family is our family. As such we've decided to fundraise for Lori this Barndaze and 100% of all proceeds will benefit her and her fight against cancer. If you're able to donate towards our cause any donation big or small will gladly be accepted by check or in person by our Philanthropy Chairman Damen Jeg. Checks can be made out to Lori Fishburn and mailed to: Damen Jeg 730 NE Linden St. Pullman, WA 99163 Thank you for any help you're able to provide and please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.

With WSU's baseball home opener today, we'd like to give a late congratulations to AGR Sigma Chapter alumnus Scott Hatteberg for his September induction into the WSU Athletics Hall of Fame. Hatteberg from Yakima, WA attended WSU from 1989-1991 where he emerged as a two-time Pac-10 first team catcher, team captain, and 1991 team MVP. During this time he was also initiated as the 1023rd brother of Alpha Gamma Rho Sigma Chapter. In 1991 he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox as a compensation pick in the first round, making his way through the minor leagues and debuting in his first major league game in 1995. Scott went on to have a successful career in the MLB playing 14 seasons for the Red Sox, Oakland Athletics, and Cincinnati Reds being known for his reliable hitting. Hatteberg retired from baseball in 2008 and currently serves as a Special Assistant to Baseball Operations for the Oakland Athletics. Hatteberg was also recently featured as a major character in the 2011 Brad Pitt film "Moneyball" being portrayed by actor Chris Pratt. The film highlighted the Athletic's pursuance of Hatteberg for his high on-base percentage, conversion from playing catcher to first base, and featured his memorable walk-off home run in a 12-11 victory over the Kansas City Royals to continue their 20-game winning streak in 2002. Congratulations on an amazing career Brother Hatteberg.
