Every year, the men of Alpha Beta Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Houston Texas hosts their time honored tradition, the Annual Orchid Ball Gala. The proceeds from this auspicious occasion support scholarships and numerous community service programs and projects. The elegance and beauty of the Orchid Ball has served to bring substantial distinction to this Noble Band of Sigma Men, past and present. During the Orchid Ball, Sigmas celebrate the end of another successful year of service to the community and at its conclusion, begin preparation for the New Year.
Here are just a few of the projects and programs that are supported by the Orchid Ball: awarding scholarships to deserving students enrolling in an accredited college or university, Annual Thanksgiving Day Food Basket Program, the Anna Dupree Senior Citizen Christmas Dinner and Gift Fellowship, support for Sigma Beta Club Youth Program, (mentoring young boys), and the Veterans Day Service Project. Alpha Beta Sigma is also very active in supporting Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s National Programs, such as the March of Dimes and the HIV-AIDS Projects.
During this year’s Orchid Ball we were very proud to have in attendance approximately 300 impeccably dressed members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and their guests who enjoyed an excellent evening of fine dinning and entertainment.
