One Florida State Fraternity is raising money by hosting a "best jugs on campus" competition, but it's not the way it sounds.

The men of Pi Kappa Alpha are holding an art competition, where different people decorate water jugs. People can come by and donate money for their favorite jugs of water, with all of the money going to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer. The guys say the risque name has helped raise awareness.

Jon Fistel is in charge of the philanthropy. He said people walk by, laugh, and wonder what is doing on. He continued,"You know whats going on here? What is that? And we explain it and they end up donating. I think because it is a little controversial, it is a little eye grabbing, it's definitely helped the cause we've been able to raise more money that way."

So far the guys have raised a few hundred dollars, and they hope to reach their goal of $500 by tomorrow night.
