9 February 2005 — The Jacksonville State University Colony of Sigma Pi Fraternity International will hold a series of events in March to help prevent alcohol-related deaths and to raise awareness of the problems of alcohol abuse.

The JSU colony will be working with the Sam Spady Foundation, whose mission is to dramatically change the culture of alcohol abuse at universities nationwide.

Sigma Pi International is participating in the Ace of Spades campaign, establishing it as a nationwide program among all chapters and colonies.
From March 7 though March 12, the Jacksonville State University colony will host awareness activities including Family Day, a big wheel race, a pie-throwing and pie-eating contest, a milk-drinking contest, a benefit concert, a 5K run, and much more.

For further information, contact David Howton at or go to for a complete schedule of events.

The Foundation is named in honor of Samantha Spady, who died tragically from alcohol poisoning on September 5th, 2005, while attending Colorado State University.
