Through kidnappings, spearheaded by "Godfather" Bill Worrell, local TV sportscaster, the UH fraternity raised $450. Lambda Chi Alpha also ransomed eight sorority members for 1,200 canned good items to donate to the St. Vincent DePaul Society, a local charitable organization. Gamma Delta Sorority took first place as most active in the event, followed by Phi Mu and Delta Sigma Theta.
