The check presentation was held during the SEAL Legacy Foundation’s Warrior Open in Boston, Massachusetts on the evening of August 27th, 2017. The attendance at the event included SEALs, their family and friends, corporate partners and highly respected community leaders such as owners of the Boston Red Sox and senior leaders from the Boston Red Sox Foundation and the Home Base organization. The SEAL Legacy Foundation Managing Director and Kappa Sigma Brother Mark McGinnis, stated “I am truly humbled by the commitment and dedication of the Kappa Sigma brothers in their support of the SEAL Legacy Foundation. Both financially and through their volunteer work, the men of Kappa Sigma continue to show their dedication to the United States Navy SEAL community.”
In attendance from Kappa Sigma were Worthy Grand Procurator Justin Hansen, A Greater Cause Commissioner Michael Hall, and Communications Commissioner Gary Marinelli. In addition, a number of undergraduate members from the Xi-Beta Chapter at Northeastern University attended.
