Sigma Chi and Sigma Pi fraternities will compete in a rivalry hockey game to raise money for cancer research Saturday during the second annual Sigma Freeze.

The event will be held at 6 p.m. at the local Mount Pleasant ice arena.

Money raised will be donated to the Huntsman Cancer Institute, the leading patient care institute in Utah and the world.

“We wanted to have an event that people looked forward to and not just donated to because it’s the right thing to do,” said Woodhaven junior and Sigma Chi fundraising chair Ryan Holder.

More than $4,000 was raised at last year’s Sigma Freeze. More than $2,000 has already been raised in donations through Sigma Freeze’s fundraising page.

There are 200 remaining tickets from the original 500. 

Those interested can call (419) 343-2570 to purchase tickets.
