AEPetting Zoo is our Chapter's Spring Philanthropy event held every April. It is a fun filled day as Brothers from our Chapter come together with fellow UConn students, as well as members of the Mansfield Community to raise money for our national philanthropy, the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Registry.
Through this unique philanthropy event of creating a pop up petting zoo, the YK Chapter of AEPi has been able to raise thousands of dollars for Gift of Life.
Gift of Life was founded in Boca Raton, Florida as an international public bone marrow and stem cell registry. AEPi has nationally decided to support Gift of Life with the belief that every person battling blood cancer deserves a second chance to life.
This is why every Spring, members of AEPi and the UConn community comes together at one of our off-campus locations to support Gift of Life and play with farm animals.
