The University of Nebraska at Kearney Alpha Omicron Pi sorority will host their sixth annual Strike-Out Arthritis Dodgeball Tournament on Thursday, March 7.
The tournament will take place from 6:30-10 p.m. in the UNK Health and Sports Center. Teams consisting of 5-6 people will pay a $35 participation fee. The tournament will use a bracket system for elimination, and the winning team will receive $300 cash prize. During the tournament, a raffle consisting of donated gifts from the Kearney community will take place. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5.
Last year, the UNK Alpha Omicron Pi dodgeball tournament raised more than $2,300. Funds raised go to the sorority’s national philanthropy, the Alpha Omicron Pi Arthritis Foundation. The foundation awards research grants and scholarships to families with children who have juvenile arthritis.
