Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi and Phi Beta Sigma fraternities joined together recently to present the first Fraternity Unity Fest at Saracen Landing.
The event included free food, games and a stroll-off between graduate and undergraduate chapters of the fraternities.
Ray Walker, a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., said the head of each alumni Greek fraternity in Pine Bluff met at the Koal to Diamond Center. Those present at the meeting included Archie Sanders, the polemarch of Kappa Alpha Psi; William Campbell, the president of Alpha Phi Alpha; Jonathan Frazier, the president of Phi Beta Sigma; and Glenn Freeman, the president of Omega Psi Phi.
Walker said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss how the fraternities could work together to help the city of Pine Bluff. Since each fraternity mission focuses on service, Walker said all in attendance agreed the collaboration would be beneficial to each fraternity and more importantly to the city of Pine Bluff.
The name adopted for the group was F.R.A.T.S (Fellowship Respect All Together for Service).
Walker said the purpose of the Unity Fest was to unite the fraternities with each other and to reach out to the community.
Proceeds from ticket sales for the event will go toward a unity scholarship.
