Ivy League Frat Punished For Helping Ike Victims
The Delta Tau chapter at Brown University gave a party September 19 and raised $800 which they gave to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund. Ten fraternity brothers were auctioned off at the Date-A-Delt event, presumably forced to have sex with Brown co-eds.
For their efforts, the frat got a six-week suspension from party privileges.
Delta Tau failed to register the event, which Brown requires for any party of over 100 people. A frat official told the Brown Daily Herald they wanted to have the event as soon as possible so they didn't do the paperwork.
It is indeed tragic:
The probation forces the fraternity to cancel BlackOut II, a Class F party - the largest type sanctioned by the University. The party was scheduled for tonight.
[Frat member Matt] Kahn said DTau had invested considerable funds in preparation for the party. For example, it had already paid for a disc jockey and applied for a one-night liquor license from the city of Providence.
Will the suffering from Ike ever stop?
