FIJI and Villanova Basketball Players Team Up for Charity

'Cats, Fraternity Team Up in Charity Effort

Villanova's chapter of Phi Gamma Delta and the university's basketball team worked together to bring smiles to the faces of man children from a Philadelphia hospital.

The Fijis brought kids from St. Mary's Villa for Children to an afternoon basketball practice, where they had an opportunity to listen to coach Jay Wright give a motivational talk, meet the players, and even get some autographs and other free stuff.

"FIJI is extremely thankful for the amount of time and effort that Coach Wright and the rest of the men's basketball team put forth in helping us make this event possible," Rob Bacigalupo, Fiji's philanthropy co-coordinator said. "To see the smiles on the children's faces and the enthusiasm in their voices was truly rewarding and gratifying."
