Working with Special Olympics in our local Bethlehem area, brothers partake and volunteer in local events. From diving into freezing cold waters in February for Polar Bear Plunge to volunteering at gymnastics tournaments, our brothers are committed to our national philanthropy.

Phi Sigma Kappa

In addition to our national philanthropy, our local Phi Sig chapter hosts our annual Blue Light Ball event to honor our last and only sweetheart Jeanne Clery. Hosted every April during sexual assault awareness month, the Blue Light Ball raises funds for the Clery Center, a non-profit dedicated to creating safer campus environments. Over the past two years the Blue Light Ball has raised $17,000 for the Clery Center.

Special Olympics

Blue Light Ball

Special Olympics is an international program of year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Its goal is for all persons with intellectual disabilities to have the chance to become useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected in their communities. The benefits of participation in Special Olympics for people with intellectual disabilities include improved physical fitness and motor skills, greater self-confidence, a more positive self-image, friendships and increased family support.


Phi Sigma Kappa has aligned itself with Special Olympics to help raise awareness about the abilities of people with intellectual disabilities.
