The seventh annual Jello Wrestling fundraising event will feature 20 wrestlers so far, including students from Tiffin University men's and women's varsity wrestling team.
Zeta Pi Beta Sorority, established in 2010, is holding its annual Jello Wrestling Event to benefit St. Judes Children's Research Hospital on Sept. 12 from 5-7 p.m. in Hayes Courtyard.
This year wrestling will include the single rounds, but also a male and female bracket competition with two $25 visa gift cards for the winners. Prices for pre-registration are $5 per entry into the bracket, which covers the cost of all rounds, $2 for an individual round, and $1 for every repeat round after that. Registration the day of is $7 for entry into the bracket and same cost for individual rounds. Zeta Pi Beta will also be accepting donations in the form of cash or Venmo. The Venmo account name is ZetaPiBeta-Sorority.
Zeta Pi Beta holds multiple events to benefit cancer research, with Jello Wrestling among the most successful, dating back to 2013. This event is new and improved this year due to a partnership with Tiffin University Wrestling teams to make the event bigger and better than ever. Tiffin University Dean Herdlick will be the referee, per tradition, in coordination with the wrestling coaches.
St. Judes has been the chosen philanthropy by Zeta Pi Beta since its establishment, along with Love Your Melon, which is another cancer research foundation.
