Durring DKE’s homecoming meeting, several alumni raised questions about raising the profile of the annual Jeremy Saxe Memorial Basketball Tournament. Brother Baldwin ’12 indicated he would be crafting a press release to bring local reporters to the event this Spring. Additionally, Brothers Garelli ’09 and Crerand ’09, who are in charge of communications for the alumni association, would do all they could to raise the profile of the event among the alumni association.
The event raises funds for the Jeremy Saxe Foundation, which supports education in the developing world, an important cause to Brother Saxe who passed away of natural causes in his Sr. year at Lafayette. The tournament has been very successful since it’s debut in 2009, not only rasing money for the foundation, but also bringing alumni back to Lafayette to support their fraternity, and to honor a fallen brother.
