Despite threatening weather and lots of rain, thirteen teams showed up to bowl. The event was held at the Strike and Spare Off Bowling Arena in Nashville Tennessee and helped to raise $9,000 for Big Brothers / Big Sisters.Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc, along with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., have partnered with Big Brothers / Big Sisters in an effort to increase long-term mentoring to youth in the BBBS program. Mr. Lowell Perry, CEO of the Middle Tennessee BBBS, hosts the annual bowling event to bring organizations together to support the youth. Mr. Perry stated, “We must help bridge the gap as it relates to mentoring our youth because our colleges,fraternities, and sororities will suffer if we do not intervene now’: A total of $1,000 dollars was generated by local chapters of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity to assist in the effort. Omega bowling team members included Brothers Marcus Ellis, Eric Walker, Robert Slack. Jermaine Scales, and Jerry Blackman. In addition, nine children were matched with caring Big Brothers or Sisters.
