MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY (WCBI) – Sororities and fraternities at Mississippi State had a fun filled day…and for a good cause. Lambda Chi Alpha hosted their annual watermelon fest this afternoon. The event was held right outside their fraternity house. More than 100 sorority girls came out, playing several field games. The fraternity collected canned foods from the girls. Last year they collected more than 72,000 cans. The cans will go to the Starkville Salvation Army.
