Dear Friends and Family,
The men of Sigma Nu are proud to announce that we have decided to pair with the Trimble Strong Foundation for our annual Temple Classic Volleyball Tournament. This event started in 2001 in memory of our brother Brady Bechtel, who was involved in a car accident in 2000, which left him paralyzed and eventually led to his passing. We have had the opportunity to benefit various philanthropic organizations over the years, and we are excited to pair with the Trimble Strong Foundation for the first time this year. Last year, through Folds of Honor, we were able to raise over $30,000 to provide scholarships for the children and spouses of fallen and disabled servicemen and women. This year, with your help, we hope to help the Trimble Strong Foundation raise the funds necessary to advance medical research into ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and to provide aid to, Oklahoma icon, Coach Allan Trimble in his struggle with the disease
In the past five years, our tournament has raised over $115,000. Last year we had over forty teams participate. We hope to make this year just as successful. The Temple Classic Volleyball Tournament also benefits Sigma Nu and serves as our main attraction on Greek Discovery Day. The event helps with recruiting prospective new members, ultimately ensuring that the future of our house lies in good hands and understand the importance of philanthropy and giving back. Sigma Nu is gearing up for another great spring semester and is excited to be sharing the experience with the Trimble Strong Foundation. Any contribution to this foundation is greatly appreciated. Donations can be made at https://www.trimblestrong.org/donateor mailed to the address below. Additionally, we will be raffling of a series of prizes including a round of golf for two at Southern Hills in Tulsa, a guided duck hunt, two playoff thunder tickets, and two club tickets to an OSU football game for the 2018 season, contact any Sigma Nu or the Chairmen below to purchase tickets.
