Ivy League Frat Punished For Helping Ike Victims

Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, an Ivy League fraternity has been punished for daring to hold a fund-raiser for Ike victims.

The Delta Tau chapter at Brown University gave a party September 19 and raised $800 which they gave to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund. Ten fraternity brothers were auctioned off at the Date-A-Delt event, presumably forced to have sex with Brown co-eds.

For their efforts, the frat got a six-week suspension from party privileges.

Delta Tau failed to register the event, which Brown requires for any party of over 100 people. A frat official told the Brown Daily Herald they wanted to have the event as soon as possible so they didn't do the paperwork.

It is indeed tragic:

The probation forces the fraternity to cancel BlackOut II, a Class F party - the largest type sanctioned by the University. The party was scheduled for tonight.

[Frat member Matt] Kahn said DTau had invested considerable funds in preparation for the party. For example, it had already paid for a disc jockey and applied for a one-night liquor license from the city of Providence.

Will the suffering from Ike ever stop?
