Lansing Alpha Phi Alphas reprises ‘scholarship ball’ for 50th anniversary

Members of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity pose for a portrait Tuesday, May 10, 2022, in Lansing.

For five decades, Lansing’s Kappa Delta Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha – the oldest historically Black fraternity – has prided itself on service to others.

Now, the chapter is asking for help itself.

To celebrate its 50th birthday, the chapter is hosting a fundraiser for college scholarships for Greater Lansing youth. The scholarship ball will be held at 6 pm June 4 at Eagle Eye Golf Club (15500 Chandler Road (Bath Township)). The event had been on hold due to the pandemic and other chapter duties. All told, the chapter hopes to fund six $ 1,000 scholarships for Lansing-area students.

“Since the founding of this chapter, we had the privilege of being a part of a lot of great things here in Lansing and providing community service for Lansing,” said Kappa Delta Lambda chapter Vice President James McCurtis Jr.
