Two UNL fraternities team up to remember a friend and father, and to fight a disease.

"He was a class act all the time, he means everything to me, he was incredible," says Kyle Warday, who lost his father in late September.

Daryl Warday was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis over a decade ago.

"More awareness needs to be raised for MS because it's something that affects a lot of people," says Kyle.

In college, Daryl was a member of Alpha Gamma Sigma.

Today, his son is apart of the Phi Kappa Theta brotherhood.

Thursday evening the two houses hosted a barbeque benefit dinner.

Phi Kappa Theta president, Matthew Keller says, "One of our big things is being brothers to each other and it's not all about the fun times we have together.  The real reason that we're here and the real reason that fraternities exist is for when difficult things happen."

Kyle says he's had a lot of support from the guys in his fraternity, "It's incredible.  Bringing my dads fraternity and my own fraternity together and doing this for an awesome cause, it's a cool thing to see."

All ticket sales are going to the National MS Society.

Money from a raffle and auction will go to the Warday family.
