The tournament took place at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor NJ. After morning play, La Unidad Latina and Lambda Sigma Upsilon advanced on to the final. Before awarding the charity check to PUPP, attendees were treated to a performance by Mas Flow, Princeton University’s Latin Dance group.Between the three teams, a total of $2,056 was awarded to the program (I’m assuming the fees for eventbrite are covered). The check was presented to Torey T. Wilson, Associate Director of PUPP; Jackie Hernandez, Alumni Fellow of PUPP, and two current PUPP Scholars.
After teams ended the game time 2-2, the winner was decided by penalty kicks. Lambda Sigma Upsilon took The Fraternal Cup Trophy home by winning 4-3.
Hermano Rudy. A. Rodas, who was inducted at Chi Chapter in Spring 2006 and is an alumnus of PUPP ‘s first graduating class (Class of 2004), organized the event. He said, “It turned out to be a great event due to all the help from the organizations involved. The people that participated came from places like Connecticut to all way down from North Carolina. More importantly, we were able to help PUPP in its mission of preparing low income high school to attend selective colleges. I know that without PUPP’s help, I would not have been able to gain admission to college and eventually go on to law school.”
