The Penn State Dairy Science Club and Alpha Zeta Fraternity teamed up to host a benefit dinner for Patricia Stiles and Reese Burdette on February 25, 2015.

Members of the dairy community, Patricia and Reese, were injured in a house fire last May. DSci and AZ were in search of a way to help the cause when they decided to pull together their resources and efforts to host the event.

Together, the two organizations planned the event, sold tickets, prepared the pasta dinner, and served the guests. Food and supplies were donated equally by the organizations, and the event was held at Alpha Zeta Fraternity house.

More than 160 guests were served in house and through take-out requests. Themed after the family, Reese’s Rotini and Patricia’s Penne were featured on the menu and enjoyed by guests.

Ticket sales and donations totaled $2,680, all of which will be donated to the families to defer medical bills. The Penn State Dairy Science Club and Alpha Zeta Fraternity sincerely thank the community and the agricultural industry who attended the event and donated to the great cause.
