Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. invites you to join them on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016 from 8 p.m. to midnight for their Fifth Annual “White Party Charity Fundraiser” benefiting Kids in Distress, Inc. (KID).

Alpha Phi Alpha has raised more than $45,000 for KID over the past four years, and brought more than 1,000 people to awareness of KID causes.

Quote from Nathan Osgood, White Party chair:
Alpha for KIDS! That’s Alpha Phi Alpha’s mantra for the White Party. We recognize that many of the children who receive services from Kids in Distress are at-risk children. We want all kids to have a chance to be raised in a loving family environment and to be successful in life. We also recognize that Kids in Distress needs funding in order to continue providing for these kids. Alpha Phi Alpha has always taken the lead of developing our youths to become leaders in our communities; we will al-ways be here for our kids. – Nathan Osgood, KID board member and White Party chair.
Quote from Juacane Reynolds, Chapter President:
“Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., develops leaders, promotes brotherhood and academic excellence, while pro-viding service and advocacy for our communities. Alpha Phi Alpha-Zeta Alpha Lambda Chapter recognizes that many of the children who receive the services of Kids in Distress are African-American boys and girls, white boys and girls, and Hispanic boys and girls. So in furtherance of our mission, the Zeta Alpha Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha has partnered with Kids in Distress to help meet the needs of our community and help at-risk youth kids. The White Party is a festive atmosphere where people who care about protecting children can gather and support Kids in Distress.” —Juacane Reynolds, president, Zeta Alpha Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
