Friends, family, everyone…you’re invited to come out and enjoy some wings with the lovely Silhouettes of the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni and the Kappas. Over many years, the Silhouettes have assisted us in providing scholarships for our youth.
The Silhouettes are sponsoring another Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant fundraiser on May 18, 2018, 216 James L Hart Pkwy #1, Ypsilanti, MI 48197. The attached flyer must be shown [electronically or via hardcopy] to secure 20% of both dine-in and carryout sales. If the total sales of our group reach $2,000 for the day, BWW will return 25%; and at $3,000 in total sales, they will return 30%! The proceeds will help to support our contribution to the Kappa scholarship fund.
As in the past, we will have a reserved area from 5 PM until close. Attend between the hours of 2 to 6 PM for Happy Hour specials.
Show your support of the AAYI Kappa Chapter by attending this event and sharing the flyer to help the Silhouettes achieve our goal of making this event a huge success.
Brother Kyle Bell, in conjunction with the Kappa Foundation, rented a theater at the Emagine Canton movie theater for a private viewing of the block buster Marvel movie “The Avengers” on Saturday, May 5, 2018. The 87 seat theater was sold out. Not only did the Brothers and their families and friends attend this event Brother Bell was able to donate tickets to Big Brothers Big Sisters and to the Kappa Leaguers. This movie has broken an all time record as the fasting grossing one billion dollars movie of all times.
Through the efforts of those who attended the movie and those who made financial contributions this endeavor provide approximately $1,100.00 for scholarships to the Foundation, provided an opportunity for youths and parents, that could not afford a ticket, to view the movie, and just a great Saturday afternoon at the movies for the Brothers.
Thank you Brother Bell, the Kappa Foundation, and the Brothers that contributed. These scholarship opportunities are critical and we are making a difference one scholarship at a time.

One out of every three African-Americans males will be incarcerated during their lifetime. How long will Americans tolerate a dual justice system? We cannot afford to ignore this catastrophic growth in incarceration! Sadly, the incarceration rate for African-American females is spiraling rapidly. It is both unjust and unfair to future generations of African Americans for us to allow this unchecked aggression to continue. We are asking organizations throughout southeastern Michigan to join the mass incarceration/criminal justice reform campaign, Project Fifty-Fifty.
This half-day forum addresses the massive incarceration/criminal justice system forced upon African American families.
