Alpha Tau Omega donates $1,000 to the HudsonAlpha Foundation

Members of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at the University of Alabama in Huntsville presented a $1,000.00 gift to the HudsonAlpha Foundation on Friday to support our work in cancer research. The donation is from the Battle of the Buffalo, an annual chicken wing festival held at Big Spring Park. Since 2009, Battle of the Buffalo has been held every year in memory of Paul “Fish” Salmon. Paul was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006 and underwent treatment at the Clearview Cancer Institute (CCI). He was a brother of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and a senior at The University of Alabama in Huntsville when he passed away in 2007. This April, for the eighth year in a row, local restaurants and amateur cooks will compete with their tastiest wings in an effort to be crowned best of the Tennessee Valley. Last year, with the help of our generous restaurants and sponsors, Battle of the Buffalo brought together more than 2,200 community members, served over 40,000 wings, and resulted in over $20,000 donated to charity.
