For the third time on February 13, 2016, Xi Delta held another Kicking for Kids Philanthropy event. This event supported the Boys and Girls Club of America, and aided the spread of awareness of their organization.
The Boys and Girls Club of America facilitates after-school programs for the young children. Active brothers could not resist to help the organization for their cause.
After hours of fun and soccer, the event concluded as a huge success. With the help of clubs, and other organizations of the Florida Tech community, raising funds was possible. To meet our goal, registration per team costs $110 which was donated right away. Along with team registration, concession sales on the sidelines were added to the donation. In return for the donation, sweat, and fun, the Omani Student Association emerged as this year’s winner!
Through the generous support of our sponsors and with teams registered, Xi Delta was able to raise more than $1,400. All of the proceeds are going directly to The Boys and Girls Foundation here in Brevard County. Xi Delta wishes to say a special thank you to everyone for playing safe and having a great time. The brothers are already excited for the next years tournament.
