This year, Battle of Troy is back at Bovard and we will be hosting our ninth Step and/or Stroll show, but this time, Greek organizations will be competing for a cash prize. Step and Strolling is one of the most unique aspects of Latinx, Black, and Multicultural Greek Organizations and this is a great opportunity for you all to see it in person.
Battle of Troy every year unites individuals from a various cultures and backgrounds for one common cause. Over the last six years, with the support of the greater Greek community we have been able to raise over $25,300 for perhaps the most important cause relevant to our community, which is education.
In it's early years, proceeds have gone to "The Fulfillment Fund." The Fulfillment Fund is a college access organization serving students who are 98% minorities and come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Much like our national philanthropy, the Fulfillment Fund has three main goals:
1. Help disadvantaged students graduate from high school;
2. Increase the number who go on to college; and
3. Help them successfully complete college and transition into the working world.
In the previous five years, the proceeds go to support the arts program at Central Los Angeles High School #9 (now Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts). The funds have helped over 25 students attend and participate in an international theatre festival in Scotland.
Not only does Battle of Troy serve to fundraise for our community, it also serves to promote our Latino, Black, and Greek Culture on campus, which often goes under-represented. Given that it is Homecoming weekend, we know that this is the perfect time to showcase to USC the beauty of our culture and the unity that exists amongst all of us. We look forward to seeing everyone from everywhere at Battle of Troy this year.
