Casino Royale/Doxey Fundraiser Letter
Article Posted: 2/9/2014 11:39:08 PM

Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends,

We personally extend our thanks to you for everything you have done for the Mississippi Beta chapter of Phi Delta Theta. With a new year just underway we have some important information regarding our new philanthropy that we want to share. As you may know, Phi Delta Thetaís international philanthropy benefits the families and patients affected by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrigís disease. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative condition that heavily affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Recently, we have been informed that one of our brothers, Mississippi Beta alumnus Ralph Doxey (Bond# 195), has been diagnosed with this life-changing condition. The men of Mississippi Beta have decided to donate the proceeds of our new philanthropy to Ralph and his family in order to help alleviate the high costs of living with ALS. But we canít do this alone, we need your help and participation.
