Phi Kappa Sigma will hold its fifth annual Safe Sex party Saturday to raise money for ActionAIDS. Fraternity brothers said they are looking forward to the party. "Last year it was a great time," College junior Scott Butler said. "It was huge, easily 600 people." According to Butler, the house's community service chairperson, all proceeds from the party will be going to ActionAIDS, an organization that supplies care directly to those with the disease. Phi Kap president Justyn Tokarczyk, though unable to estimate the probable proceeds of the event, said the party will be "a little philanthropy and a little fun at the same time." The fraternity is selling t-shirts on Locust Walk this week for $10 each. They printed 200 of the shirts, which feature a skull and crossbones, with the crossbones covered with condoms. The phrase on the shirt says "cover your bone." Butler said admission to the party will cost $5, but that anyone wearing the t-shirt will be admitted free of charge. The fraternity anticipates a large turnout, but it will not be facing the party-goers alone. Tokarczyk said the house has received support from outside sources. "We received some support," said the Wharton junior. "Condom Nation [the store on 4th Street] and Student Health each contributed 200 condoms." But Tokarczyk said the Safe Sex party does not add to the stereotype that the only purpose fraternity parties serve is to find women for male guests. "I'm sure some people have the stereotype image," he said. "But that's really not the case at all. It's to raise money and contribute to a good cause."
