On April 23, 2011 Delta Epsilon Psi Kappa Colony held our third annual Sugar Spike Off. The event brought out eleven teams to participate in the volleyball tournament aimed at raising money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Sugar Spike Off was a success, bringing out both Greek and non-Greek organizations to a day of sports, food, and fun. Whether you were a participant competing in the tournament, an observer cheering from the sidelines, or one of the many people enjoying the Rita’s Ice and hotdogs outside of the gym, the day was an enjoyable one. With the enthusiasm of the participants and large turnout of northeast brothers who came out for support and help, Sugar Spike Off was one of the most successful philanthropy events of the year at Kappa Colony.
Sunday, November 14th 2010. It’s a day that Kappa Colony will remember for the rest of their lives. It’s also a day that Jaynish Patel Brother, Iron Man, will cherish and keep close to his heart for the rest of his life. Finally, it’s a day where over 300 people get to see first hand how one man’s battle with a relapsing cancer is touching lives everywhere.
“A Walk to Remember” was a 5K walk hosted by the brothers of Delta Epsilon Psi at Kappa Colony to provide support to Jaynish, both fiscal and emotional. Jaynish Patel is a member of the Beta Class of Kappa Colony and the success of the event was due largely to the effort of his line brother and close friend, Aman Singh. Singh was pleased with the turnout and admitted it has been a difficult time for him. He stated “To see this happen once to someone you care about is devastating. But to see it twice, then you know humanity has a responsibility to assist those who are suffering through any sort of pain.”
This year, Kappa Chapter of Delta Epsilon Psi hosted “King of The Court” with Lambda Phi Epsilon. As the name implies, King of the Court was a basketball tournament open for registration to any player, Greek or non-Greek. This was the first collaborative event D.E.Psi had thrown with Lambda Phil Epsilon.
