Alpha Tau Omega supports HudsonAlpha cancer programs

Members of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) presented a $8,700 gift to the HudsonAlpha Foundation on Wednesday, August 28 to support HudsonAlpha’s cancer programs. The donation is from the Battle of the Buffalo, an annual chicken wing festival held at Huntsville’s Big Spring Park.

Since 2009, Battle of the Buffalo has been held every year in memory of Paul “Fish” Salmon. Paul was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006 and underwent treatment at the Clearview Cancer Institute (CCI) in Huntsville. He was a brother of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and a senior at UAH when he passed away in 2007. The men of Alpha Tau Omega created the festival centered on buffalo wings, Paul’s favorite snack. The event has raised more than $130,000 and continues to support local cancer programs.
