Phi Sigma Pi Philly Cup Soccer Tournament Benefitting Autism Speaks Starting November 19

I recently had the opportunity to speak to Nicholas Favreau of the Phi Sigma Pi fraternity at Drexel University.  He wanted to promote an upcoming soccer tournament that the fraternity is running.   The Gamma Xi chapter at Drexel, in cooperation with the Alpha Lambda chapter at Temple University, holds an annual soccer tournament to benefit Autism Speaks.  Autism Speaks is their joint chapter’s local charity that they work  with every year.

The weekend of November 19 will mark their 5th annual Philly Cup.  Members of the fraternity from all over the country come in to the area to participate in a soccer tournament, silent auction, and other festivities.  On Satuday, November 20, the two chapters run the all-day long soccer tournament where proceeds are donated to Autism Speaks.  The chapters look for donations from area businesses and individuals for everything from breakfast on the day of the event and cash donations to help cover some of the cost of running the event.  They also encourage donations to Autism Speaks.

Autism Speaks was founded in 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism.  Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the largest advocate of research and awareness of autism.  They promote research into prevention, treatment, and towards a cure.  You can reach the national website of autism speaks by clicking

Anyone who would like to donate to the efforts of Phi Sigma Pi can contact Nicholas Favreau at  pspfundraisingcommittee@gmail.comor their Chapter President, Sarah Donnelly at

For more information on the fraternity, you can visit the site for the Gamma Xi chapter of Drexel, the Alpha Lambda chapter of Temple, or the Phi Sigma Pi national website.
