Volleyball Tournament will support help for Haiti
Friday, February 12th, 2010
The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at Lawrence Tech is hosting its 23rd annual Volleyball BLAST tournament on March 27. All proceeds from this event will go directly to Reconstruction Efforts Aiding Children without Homes (REACH).
The goal of the annual event is to raise funds for a charitable cause and to promote community involvement. Since 1987, the Michigan Theta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon has raised more than $100,000 for charities such as the Michigan Lupus Foundation, the Spinal Cord Society, and YouthAIDS.
On Jan. 12, Haiti was hit by its most devastating earthquake in over 200 years. REACH was already doing work in Haiti. The fraternity is committed to helping REACH, founded by Lawrence Tech alumnus Don Stevens, achieve its mission to provide homes for children affected by natural disasters, war, and poverty. Find out more about how you can help at REACH4children.org.
Sigma Phi Epsilon has been working hard fund-raising in new ways this year. Green REACH bracelets can be purchased from members of Sigma Phi Epsilon or at the table that will be set up in the atrium at different times during the semester.
Please join the fraternity in helping to promote the message of REACH by registering a team or contributing to the cause. Your donations and support can help children in Haiti.

REACH brings environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings to children affected by natural disaster, poverty, and war around the world. Through a collaboration of various partners, it has developed a volunteer program that allows a person, or a group, to selflessly give the basic necessities of shelter to children, while gaining an insight into the plights of impoverished children around the world.
