The Alpha Xi Delta sorority and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity hold a Fiesta Feed to raise money for Autism Speaks.

It's a night of all you can eat nachos and a jalapeno eating contest. People paid $5 at the door to get in and all the money goes to help families with autism.

ZXiD Philanthropy Co-Chair Valerie Pavlicek says, "There's a bunch of people on campus who know people who have autism or families, so knowing that we're raising money for them is awesome, just everyone coming together to have a good time."

Pavlicek hopes 1200 people will come through the doors of the sorority by the time the fundraiser is over. She says last year, they had 900 people and that was in the middle of a snow storm.
