SC School for the Deaf and the Blind offers 12 sports to the students to attend school here and 76% of students participate in at least one sport. The money donated by the fraternity through this basketball tournament is vital to ensuring these players have the equipment they need to succeed. The tournament has helped the school purchase equipment and pay for expenses when the school’s sports teams travel to tournaments.
“This tournament was started because of a shared love of sports and fraternity members past experience with the school,” said Weslie Higdon, Director of Development of the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind Foundation. “We are so grateful the members of Pi Kappa Alpha at Wofford continue to carry on the dream of the students who originally started the tournament. Their support has been invaluable to our athletics department.”
