Dick Clark, who passed away nearly a year ago, reportedly donated $1 million to his former fraternity at Syracuse University.
TMZ reported that the fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon, has revealed that the money will be used towards the frat house, which was actually purchased by Clark himself.
"It wouldn't mean a lot if we blew all the money on parties because no future classes be able to appreciate it,” the social chair of DKE told TMZ.
The source also added that the house is in desperate need of repairs, including work to be done to the mahogany woodwork that is chipping.
At this point, there is reportedly no sort of dedication to Clark in the house, but the fraternity members are hoping to put up some sort of plaque eventually.
According to Zap2it, Clark was a member of DKE from 1947-1951 when he attended the university. Other notable alumni of the fraternity include Rutherford B. Hayes, Theodore Roosevelt, Gerald Ford, George Bush, and George W. Bush.
