For the past four years, 'Theta Chi Date Auction' has been held every spring at the University of Tampa. The event is open to UT's community in efforts to fundraise for Sal's Soldiers and allowing a platform for UT's Theta Chi Fraternity to connect with it's community on a philanthropic level.
The dates auctioned are donated by local businesses in the Tampa Bay Area and auctioned off to the highest bidders. The event is a lively night filled of music, food, education and fun all while supporting our fight against Multiple Sclerosis. The event has shown a great success with our organization and we look forward to continuing this tradition annually. We would like to thank Theta Chi, the University of Tampa, and our generous donors for their continued support with this event!
