Proceeds from the tournament support the Students First Fund: Community Service. This fund allows students, through the Office of Community Outreach, to help others through alternative break service, weekly service programs in the local community, and special service projects. The funds raised over the last 6 years ($115,000) have enhanced the students’ experiences by increasing leadership and training opportunities, making service trips more affordable, and expanding the number of initiatives available to students.
