On April 20th, The Oregon State University Chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho is excited to hosts its annual “Alpha Gamma Rhodeo” philanthropy, which benefits Heifer International. Alpha Gamma Rhodeo is an Agricultural Olympics styled competition with individual events including a Swing Dancing competition, pedal tractor race, and milk chugging contest, among others. New this year, sororities are allowed to nominate one of their members to apply and run for the position of “Rhodeo Queen,” who will be crowned the night of the Rhodeo and featured on the Alpha Gamma Rho composite the following year. If you are interested in participating or looking for more information, please contact Chris Ottoboni at 415.517.4438.
All proceeds will be lumped into a donation to Heifer International, which is a “worldwide organization whose main goal is to end starvation in third world countries. Heifer International gives families a source of long-term sustainable agriculture through gifts of livestock and knowledge.” Last year the event raised over $2000 dollars, and we hope to raise even more this year. Alpha Gamma Rho is a proud supporter of Heifer International in their pursuits of teaching the less fortunate how to sustainably and productively use livestock.

Alpha Gamma Rho is a nationwide fraternity with the purpose “To make better men, and through them, a broader and better agriculture.” The local chapter is proud to be active in the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences and Greek Community with young men in leadership positions within the College and various clubs.
