H.I.V./AIDS Research and Awareness
Since our inception, our brothers have given significant attention to its community service and philanthropy efforts. But in June of 1989, Alberto Rivera, one of our 20 founding fathers, passed away due to complications related to the HIV virus.
As a result of this tragedy, our brothers made the unanimous decision to honor his passing by promoting and supporting HIV & AIDS research and awareness and declaring it our national philanthropy.
Our chapters have been inspired in a variety of unique ways to contribute to the fight against HIV & AIDS.
Each year, they have donated thousands in proceeds by hosting banquets, fundraisers, walk-a-thons, tournaments, raffles, and other philanthropic programs. ey have partnered with humanitarian organizations like Keep A Child Alive and World Vision by sponsoring children living in communities affected by AIDS. They have also educated and helped spread awareness of the disease within their respective communities with events like the World AIDS Day Candle Light Vigil and the Live Sage Public Service Announcement.
