On February 5th, 2022, in Eykamp Hall, the annual event BMOC or Big Man on Campus took place with the theme Through the Decades. The sorority Zeta Tau Alpha usually holds this event in October since that is Breast Cancer Awareness month. However, Zeta wanted to show that the awareness of Breast Cancer is important all year. Each contestant represents a fraternity/sorority or a club. All Greek life came together to show their support to Zeta and their event.
After the talents one of the judges Pat Bowman told the story of her son Matt Bowman who tragically passed away from breast cancer. His story was an inspiring one and he pushed the narrative of ensuring that even men can get breast cancer and to always be aware. Down below there is a piece by Gary Brian (WTHI-TV) that wrote about Matt Bowman and Zetainserted it in their program.
BMOC raised over $1379.54 in fundraising and donations with their silent auction for Breast Cancer Awareness. This event was not only entertaining, but all of the proceeds went to such an important philanthropy that is so important to many of us. Breast Cancer affects many women and men around us and Zeta Tau Alpha held such an amazing event to bring awareness about breast cancer!
