Students Raise Money for Sisters’ Mission in Haiti

Last week the Felician University Student Government Association (SGA) sponsored a fundraising basketball game to support the Felician Sisters’ mission in Haiti.

Andrew Toriello, director of Intramurals and coach of the Felician bowling team, and Bado Alverna, assistant director of Residence Life, acted as coaches. Fr. Rich Kelly, director of Campus Ministry, served as the announcer. The national anthems of both Haiti and the United States were sung before the game began.

It was a very fun, fast paced and competitive game, and in the end, Bado Alverna’s team was the victor, scoring over 100 points! 

Felician students on both teams wore jerseys with the word “Haiti” on the back, reminding everyone who attended that they were helping to live out the Felician mission and values. Nearly $700 was raised to assist the Sisters in their ministry in the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
