Beta Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. to host charity basketball tournament

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

SC State’s Beta Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. will host the GAME-POINT! charity basketball tournament on the campus of SC State on Saturday, Apr.18, 2009 at the basketball court, adjacent from Mitchell’s residential hall and Sunday, Apr.19, 2009 at 1 p.m. in Smith Hammond Memorial Center.


The purpose of GAME-POINT! is to raise funds for community centers and after school programs in the local Orangeburg Community. It is evident that due to a lack of government funding, many after school programs are being cut. To gain support and participation from local residents and business of the greater Orangeburg Community GAME-POINT! was initiated.


“Knowing how society can place many distractions in our path towards success, we understand the importance of having the opportunity to participate in positive extracurricular activities; therefore Beta Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc decided to institute GAME-POINT!, as a way of giving back to the local youth,” said Demetrious McClammy, project coordinator for GAME-POINT!


The Beta Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc would like to challenge the Orangeburg Community to become proactive in building a brighter future for our youth and assistance in spreading the word about this positive endeavor geared towards education.


“We were inspired to create GAME-POINT! to help raise money for those youths in need of after school programs to keep them off the streets and thus providing a brighter future,” said Quincy Mack, president of Beta Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
