Bozeman, MT – The Kappa Sigma Fraternity, Delta-Lambda Chapter at Montana State University raised over $11,000 from their 3rd annual Sushi For Soldiers event that they held on Nov. 9th, 2017.
The money was raised for the local philanthropy, Warriors & Quiet Waters. The event was a success due to the special help from Seven Sushi, The Rocking R Bar, Jersey Mikes, and twenty other local businesses. The event included fresh sushi rolls, raffle prizes, and T-Shirts. This total was the largest charitable contribution raised in the Chapter’s 91-year history at Montana State University!
The Kappa Sigma Fraternity has worked closely with Warriors & Quiet Waters for a few years and plans to continue. Warriors & Quiet Waters was chosen as their primary philanthropic organization “Because [Kappa Sigma] has a passion for fly fishing and we have many veterans of our own”.
Warriors & Quiet Waters is a philanthropic organization that helps post 9/11 combat veterans reintegrate into society by bringing veterans here for a week-long program of fly fishing and a restful time in our beautiful surroundings. The trip includes instruction, gear, guided fishing trips, home cooked meals, and camaraderie. If you would like to learn more or how you can help visit https://warriorsandquietwaters.org/.
