Members of Kansas University’s greek community will gather for the 63rd time for another rendition of Rock Chalk Revue, an annual variety show fund-raiser.

“I fell in love with it the first time I did it as a sophomore,” said Jon Goscha, a senior from Salina who’s serving as the show’s co-executive director this year.

This year’s show, “Easier Said Than Done,” is scheduled for performances at 7 p.m. March 1 and 2 and 5 p.m. March 3. All shows are at the Lied Center.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, Feb. 13, and will be available at lied.ku.edu. Tickets are $21 for the performances on March 1 and 2 and $26 on March 3.

The organizations participating this year are:

• Beta Theta Pi and Chi Omega — “A Campus Carol”

• Phi Kappa Psi and Kappa Alpha Theta — “Your Wish Is My Command”

• Sigma Chi and Kappa Delta — “A Mall Story”

• Sigma Nu and Delta Delta Delta — “It Suits You”

• Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Gamma — “A Letter for U”

Harrison Drake, a sophomore from Overland Park from Sigma Nu, is directing “It Suits You.”

“You’re asking all these football players, lacrosse players to sing and dance,” he said. “But everyone kind of secretly has always wanted to do it.”

The groups will be celebrating a total of more than $1 million to the United Way of Douglas County since 1983. Last year, organizers donated a record $62,000.

The organizers donated the money or collected the donations?

Nope, just asking for clarification, thought it sounded weird that the people who organized it where the ones donating the money. It doesn't say organizers collected $62,000 in donations, it says organizers donated $62,000. You obviously can't read that though because for some reason you think my post says I have a problem with it. it was just a question, take a deep breath calm down

It states that the tickets are for sell, then later states how much was donated. No where does it say that the money donated was all from ticket sells, or any of it for that matter. They do have events like this where you have to buy tickets and then they take donations at the event as well. The ticket sells are usually used pay off the cost if the event. Your so charitable, you should know that. Seeing as though this is put on by a bunch frats or sorority members, whose parents tend to be a little more well off, and likely to attend, I found this very possible. I obviously know nothing about the event itself which is why asked. Keep adding imaginary words to you're monitor
