The 2014-2015 school year was extremely successful for the UT-Austin Chapter. In addition to our traditional events: Laugh for Kids: A Comedy Showcase, Baal Danquet, Date Auction and volunteering/being the beneficiary for Raas Rodeo, we also volunteered at Longhorn Halloween, Helping Hand in Austin, and delivery breakfast under the bridge for the needy. Over $6,000 dollars was raised and donated throughout this past school year and was a record amount for the UT Austin Chapter.
