Phi Tau Cookout for Kids

Truman’s Phi Kappa Tau chapter will conduct its 20th annual Cookout for Kids April 14 to benefit the SeriousFun Camps for children with chronic or terminal illnesses.

The cookout menu includes barbecued half chicken or pork steak, baked beans, coleslaw, bread and a soda or bottled water for $9. Food is delivered or can be picked up between 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at 215 N. High Street. Orders can be placed online until April 6.

Fraternity members will also be taking orders at tables in the Student Union Building, March 31 and April 2, as well as Magruder Hall March 30.

Actor and philanthropist Paul Newman, a Phi Tau alumnus, founded the SeriousFun Camps. They provide multiple one-week camping experiences for children who suffer from chronic and terminal illnesses that require around-the-clock care and frequent hospitalizations. The camps provide these experiences free of charge to children’s families and it is only through contributions that the camps are able to continue. One hundred percent of the profits from Cookout for Kids go to the camps.
