When Striking Out is a Good Thing

“Strike Out Arthritis!” is a campus-wide wiffle-ball tournament occurring at Great Lawn at Monmouth University on Saturday May 3, a day filled with sports and entertainment all for a great cause.

“Strike Out Arthritis! Is the signature philanthropy event of Alpha Omicron Pi,” says Victoria Day, Philanthropy Chair of the chapter, “and all proceeds benefit the AOII Foundation’s work to eliminate arthritis as a disease and to eliminate the pain and suffering it causes old and young alike.” To date, the AOII Foundation has given more than $2 million in grants for arthritis research and education.

The May 3 event will be a wiffle-ball tournament played on the fields at Great Lawn beginning at 12 pm. Participating teams already committed to play include the sisters of the Iota Theta chapter. Additional teams desiring to play or sponsors wanting the support the event may obtain information by emailing Victoria Day at s0817489@monmouth.edu. Teams can register with up to seven people with a donation of $20. Thursday May 1 is the deadline to register.

“Strike out arthritis is supporting an amazing cause! Participating will benefit Arthritis Research and it will be a ton of fun,” said Alex Stucy, charter member of AOII. In addition to the wiffle-ball games, there will be refreshment booths, prizes, derby, and a guest from the Arthritis Foundation.
