Zeta Sigma Hosts Basketball Game to Benefit Salvation Army
The Zeta Sigma fraternity at Alma College is hosting the Second Annual Basketball Blowout to benefit the Salvation Army on Saturday, April 4 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is free, but all are encouraged to bring a monetary or canned good donation. Gift certificates from local businesses will be given away during halftime games and also through raffle tickets. All proceeds will go to Alma’s Salvation Army.
“We really wanted to do something that would involve the entire campus as well as the Alma community — so come fill the bleachers!” says senior Pat Tompkins, event coordinator. “We wanted to do something to raise money for the Salvation Army in the spring as well as the fall.”
The brothers of Zeta Sigma will play the brothers of Sigma Chi, with Murray Borrello, instructor of environmental studies and co-director for the Center for Responsible Leadership, serving as commentator. Alma a cappella group Pretty in Plaid will perform the national anthem.
“We feel this is a good way to show interfraternal relations, especially with the negative stereotypes sometimes given to fraternities,” says Sigma Chi member Bobby Chasnis.
“This is a great way to be competitive but still get along and have a great time.”
