West Chester, Pa September 28, 2018—The Brothers of Omicron Mu Nu, treated students from the West Chester Area School District, and families from Lifeline Community Church of Coatesville to the Phillies game against the Atlanta Braves.
Thanks to The Philadelphia Phillies Community Engagement Coordinator, Kenny Johnson the brothers were able to treat 100 people total to the game with premium seating in the 100 level of Citizens Bank Park. So although the Phillies didn’t come out on top students and families certainly did.
According to West Chester’s local online news outlet The Daily Local the students, aged 8 to 15, and their chaperones were given the opportunity to attend what was, for many, their first baseball games thanks to the Omicron Mu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Krapf School Buses, and the Office of the Mayor of West Chester.
Basileus Darius Taylor says we’re a small chapter but we’re extremely active. We participate in as many community activities has we can constantly working to better serve the Chester County community, particularly by providing adult male mentorship to local students.
