Makin’ a Splash for Special Olympics

Alpha Sigma Alpha will be hosting their first annual “Makin’ a Splash for Special Olympics” dunk tank fundraiser on Thursday, Sept. 6. The event will take place on the Lycoming Lawn from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. where attendee’s will get the opportunity to dunk some of your favorite ASA sisters while supporting two great causes.
The sisters will be selling “throws” for the dunk tank as well as refreshments, water ice, rubber wristbands, and drink koozies. All proceeds made from the event will be split and donated to two different causes. First, the S. June Smith Center is Alpha Sigma Alpha’s national philanthropy whose vision is to create a community where all children have equal opportunity and equal value. Their mission is to support children with disabilities in achieving their potential and promoting their full participation within their families, schools, and communities.
Alpha Sigma Alpha is also helping to support the family of a five-year-old girl named Valentina, who very unfortunately passed away recently due to a brain tumor. Valentina was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, an inoperable tumor located near the brain stem. It is important to raise awareness by sharing Valentina’s story and keeping her beautiful spirit alive.
With both of these causes in mind, the sisters of Alpha Sigma Alpha are asking for your help to raise money and help change the lives of many children. Come out to support two great causes and get some of your favorite ASA sisters wet!
