Since 2010 Alpha Omicron Pi has partnered with Major League Baseball teams to host fundraising efforts in support of the Arthritis Foundation through our Strike Out Arthritis! events. A portion of the ticket price, purchased through the specific AOII link, goes towards grants to the Arthritis Foundation. With ticket sales and attendance growing every year, AOII is able to donate more to our international philanthropy. Partnering with all 30 MLB teams gives us the opportunity to bring larger awareness, and higher participation in our effort to Strike Out Arthritis!
In addition to these Fraternity-wide SOA! events, our collegiate and alumnae chapters host local SOA! events that also contribute to AOII’s overall mission to Strike Out Arthritis!
We hope to see you at the ballpark!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between MLB Strike Out Arthritis! events and local collegiate and alumnae chapters’ Strike Out Arthritis! events?
Major League Baseball SOA! events are MLB games that are sponsored and hosted by Alpha Omicron Pi International Fraternity. These games are Fraternity-wide events, and proceeds are donated to the Arthritis Foundation on behalf of Alpha Omicron Pi International Fraternity.
Local collegiate and alumnae chapter SOA! events are held at the local level and are usually hosted on the campus or within the immediate community. Chapters donate proceeds from these events to the AOII Foundation, who in turn grants these dollars to the Arthritis Foundation.
