Tampa , FL  Millions of people around the country look forward to enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving meal and then shopping all of the calories off on Black Friday. Others eagerly anticipate letting their fingers do the shopping,  surfing the web for those special holiday deals on Cyber Monday.

But there’s another day that organizers hope will transform the country…  Giving Tuesday.

This year, why not help young men in the Tampa Bay area by giving to a worthy group with a 100% success rate.

The Crescent Foundation, an arm of the international fraternity Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated, is proud of its Sigma Beta Club. Sigma Beta is an organization for teen boys ages 13-18.

In the early 1950s, Phi Beta Sigma became the first Greek organization to develop a youth auxiliary group.

In April 1954, the first club chapter was organized in Montgomery, AL. Throughout its existence, Sigma Beta Club has been an essential part of the total organizational structure of many of the Alumni chapters of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and offers men of Sigma a unique opportunity to develop wholesome value, leadership skills, and social and cultural awareness of youth at a most critical stage in the youth’s personal development.

The Sigma Beta Clubs’ principles of focus emphasize Culture, Athletics, Social and Educational needs. Sigma Beta Club programs are geared to meet the needs of its members, but at the same time provide them with a well-rounded outlook that is needed to cope with today’s society. Phi Beta Sigma is confident that investing in our youth today will produce effective leaders of tomorrow.

In Tampa, the organization has handed out more than $35,000 in scholarships, has a 100% high school and college graduation rate and has mentored and developed  45 plus young men since 2006.

On Giving Tuesday, consider making a donation to the Crescent Foundation, so that we may continue our mission of enhancing the lives of young men in the Tampa Bay area.
