Pancake Feed to Raise Funds in Memory of Fallen Fraternity Brothers
In 2006, Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Zeta Psi Fraternity lost two fraternity brothers who both died unexpectedly from heart difficulties.
Zeta Psi Fraternity will hold its annual fundraiser — the Patty Zach Pancake Feed — on Thursday, March 25 at Nebraska Wesleyan’s dining hall, located in the student center. The event is held in memory of former students Patrick McLaughlin and Zach Anderson. Tickets are $4 in advance and $5 at the door. Proceeds will benefit the Patrick McLaughlin AED Memorial Fund.
Doors open at 8 p.m. and pancakes will be served until 11 p.m.
The Patrick McLaughlin Memorial Fund will be used to purchase Nebraska Wesleyan’s final automated external defibrillator (AED), a device used in cases of cardiac arrhythmias, which can lead to cardiac arrest. The campus has nine AEDs in its buildings with seven of those funded through the McLaughlin Memorial Fund.
