Will you be the next…McKendree Idol? Campus Activities Board and Kappa Lambda Iota (CLIO) present the Tenth Annual McKendree Idol Fund Raiser for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Fund. The purpose of this event is two-fold: 1) It is a fun event that showcases the talents of our McKendree students and 2) McKendree Idol serves as a fundraiser for the Susan G.

To date, CLIO and Campus Activities Board have raised over $10,000 to aid in breast cancer research.
