Kettering University’s Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity is teaming up with the University of Michigan-Flint’s Phi Sigma Sigma sorority to host “48 Hours of Volleyball.” The festivities begin at 6 p.m. Friday, July 25, with a cookout, followed by live music at 7 p.m. The 4-on-4 volleyball tournament begins at noon on Saturday, July 27, and the event concludes at 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 27.

In addition to teams competing in continuous volleyball games throughout the 48 hours, there will be plenty of other activities as well, including a 50-50 raffle and silent acution.

“Carriage Town Ministries will be kicking off the tournament, advertising what they do and who they benefit,” said Mike Rhein, Kettering student and external vice president of Lambda Chi Alpha. “We’ll also have a bake sale, lawn games and movies and video games.”

Rhein also noted that, if there’s interest, there could be a Euchre tournament Saturday afternoon and an open mic night on Saturday evening.

Cost to participate in the tournament is $20 per team and is due prior to the start of the tournament on Saturday. For information, email Mike Rhein at rhei7708@kettering.edu.
