|A Message from the Grand Polemarch - Kappa Klassic 2017|
Many of us who proudly wear the crimson and cream journeyed to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida to support our Kappa Foundation. “Building the Dream Klassic” or "The Klassic" was the first national public fundraiser sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The Klassic was a very exciting and successful display of Kappa Alpha Psi at its best. The event generated over $100,000 that will be used to support our important initiatives in the areas of youth development & leadership and community engagement.
The Klassic helped us to tell our story and positively position the great philanthropic work we do for young men and our communities. We had over 300 participants, representing globally branded corporations, business owners and individual professionals. This was a "one-of-a-kind" national event because it offered the right balance of educational sessions, social activities and networking opportunities. Some of the highlights:
I recommend that every Kappa take the opportunity to participate in "The Klassic" next year. Kappa Alpha Psi is one of the fortunate beneficiaries of this event and we need to support it.
For additional highlights on this inaugural event, please visit www.thekappaklassic.com to watch the overview video and view over 1000 photos in the photo gallery. The planning has started for 2018 and for more information, please contact Brother Rodney C. Adkins (Rod), the Klassic Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
