WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Brothers from the FarmHouse Fraternity at Purdue University hosted a hog roast for a cause today.

Students from across campus were invited to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Those who came to the roast were encouraged to participate in the "Be the Match" booth to join the blood and bone marrow registry.

Along with food, the fraternity held a corn hole tournament. Jared Forgey said FarmHouse is proud to host this event in the honor of a fellow brother.

"Because of our brother John Romine, he was affected by it and he was diagnosed before my time," said Forgey. "He's really the one who started all this and sadly he passed away but he really started this."
