Up 'til Dawn
The primary philanthropy event for Greek life as a whole at Cal Poly Pomona is Up ’til Dawn, which is typically held in January. Up 'til Dawn is a nationwide student-led, student-run program in which college students raise funds for and awareness of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It provides opportunities in leadership for students, allowing them to gain valuable work experience by organizing and participating in fund-raising activities. The program also strengthens the campus community by encouraging faculty, staff and surrounding community residents to participate in the arranged fund-raising campaigns and awareness days.
Up 'til Dawn's main event attempts to unite the entire campus and community to acknowledge their achievements and honor patients at St. Jude, an event at which students stay “Up ‘til Dawn.” The program is called “Up ‘til Dawn” to symbolize the countless nights that parents stay up with their sick children. At Cal Poly Pomona, members of the Greek community compose the majority of the participants and Executive Board positions. The overnight event is composed of games, breakout group sessions, and even sit-downs with patients from St. Jude who attend to also stay “up ‘til dawn.” Over the past few years, Cal Poly Pomona has raised over $175,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
