Rock the Campus for the Cure debuted in September of 2005 on the UT Dallas campus. Fraternity Brothers and friends came together to celebrate the zeal, determination and enthusiasm their lost friend and Brother had for everything he was involved with. The concerts ran regularly through 2013 and raised over $75,000 in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and other organizations that support the patients of Blood Cancers. Over 3000 concert goers participated in our campus-community cancer awareness raising events and were treated to 56 of the best bands in Dallas over the 9-year period.
In May of 2016 Rock the Campus hosted it’s 10th event in memory of Brad Monks. The Inaugural Brad Monks Memorial Golf Tournament had 27 players and 21 sponsors. We were able to donate over $4,500 in proceeds to the North Texas Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society which represented nearly 80% of all proceeds from the event going directly to support our charity. We hope to see you at a future tournament!

In 2005 Carl Lutz wanted to memorialize a close friend and fraternity brother, Brad Monks, who had recently lost a life-long fight with cancer to lymphoma. Lutz and fellow members of the Texas Chi chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity set out to raise awareness, fundraise, and celebrate the memory of their friend through a rock concert. The success of the event led to it becoming an annual on-campus activity at The University of Texas at Dallas and by 2010 it was the inspiration behind the formation of our 501(c)3 charity, Rock the Campus. Today, our purpose holds true: Rock the Campus aims to actively support the mission of the North Texas chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and raise awareness through our philanthropic efforts. We work to celebrate Brad’s life and the growing number of others in our circle of friends and family who have been impacted by these types of cancer.
