A Message from Brother Antonio F. Knox, Sr., 40th Grand Basileus
Help Us To Support St. Jude Game Day Give Back Program!

Giving Honor to God, My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is proud to be a national volunteer partner for the 2017 St. Jude Game Day Give Back Program. This is the Fraternity's third year of partnering with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as the doctors and researchers continue to lead the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life threatening diseases.

We have set a goal of raising $50,000 and I have asked our International Social Action Chairman and his team to start the fundraising efforts earlier this year, (October 1, 2016 – February 20, 2017) focusing on football classics, homecomings, and ending the campaign with the Big Game. I ask that each Brother Chapter and District participate in this worthy program by donating to the Program. Please click on the link below to make the donation process easy and simple. http://fundraising.stjude.org/OmegaPsiPhi.

In short, St. Jude is the world's leading facility for the research and treatment of childhood cancer. Families are blessed with the best care and they never incur any expenses, allowing them to focus solely on the care of their children toward total wellness. There is an 80% cure rate at St. Jude and 40% of the patients are African Americans.

Brothers, I look forward to everyone's participation in this fundraising effort. If you have any questions please contact our St. Jude representative Brother Al White via email at socialactionchair@oppf.org or call him directly at 919-264-9562.

Thank you for your swift attention to this! As we stand in the gaps of progress, never forget that "We Are One!"

Fraternally,
Brother Antonio F. Knox, Sr.
40th Grand Basileus
