Greetings Brothers of the “Mighty” Southwestern Province:
I have been attempting to develop the verbiage that truly expresses my gratitude for the results of the 2012 election and the subsequent four elections which afforded me the privilege of being your chosen as your Senior Province Vice Polemarch. Simple and precise seems to be best. My family and I thank you, Southwestern Province!

               [ Official Sunday Of Hope Kickoff Presentation]

 Good Brothers of the Southwestern Province,

I hope this message finds you in great spirits. Since my last report to the SWP, I am proud to say that more brothers and more chapters stepped up and contributed to this all important fundraising campaign. I am also pleased to report that, as a fraternity, we have met and exceeded our first year goal of $250,000 (on our way to our 4-year goal of 1 million dollars!)

The Southwestern Province had a big hand in reaching this initial milestone.

Including the fundraising efforts of 2014 and 2015 (prior to the official reboot of this campaign), online giving on the St. Jude SWP Team page and the fundraising efforts by your respective chapters, as of June 30th we raised…$96,971.17!!!

If your chapter has raised any money for St. Jude, but is not shown please contact me directly so we can make sure your chapter receives proper credit. The St. Jude fiscal year ended on June 30th. Please contact me as well if your chapter needs help or guidance in moving forward so your chapter can participate in the 2016-2017 campaign.

Special recognition goes to Baton Rouge Alumni (#1), Dallas Alumni (#3) and Richardson/Plano Alumni (#4) as their respective partner churches were among the Top 10 Fundraising Churches! These church/chapter partnerships will be recognized by St. Jude, in Memphis, TN on October 14-16.
