University of Minnesota fraternity Sigma Chi is going to need a lot of candles.

The fraternity will celebrate its 125th anniversary on campus on Saturday with an event honoring current and alumni members at TCF Bank Stadium, according to an email news release.

Sigma Chi is one of the five oldest fraternities at the University of Minnesota, founded on campus in 1888.

Sigma Chi’s 125th Anniversary Celebration will bring back more than 130 alumni, including Michael Benson, Chief Creative Officer of Time Warner Global Media.

Former Gopher football player John Campbell, who was a member of the 1960 national championship team and the first Gopher player drafted by the Vikings, will also attend.
