“Kruise” with the Kappas and open the college door for local students


WINTER PARK – If a warm summer night’s cruise down the St. Johns, with casino entertainment to offset the romantic ambience, sounds appealing, then the Kappas have the ticket for you.  Literally. 


If you pay the price, your dollars will go toward need-based scholarships for Orlando-area high school seniors.


Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity’s Winter Park Alumni Chapter has planned its Kappa Kasino Kruise for August 9 from 7 – 11 p.m. on the The Rivership Barbara-Lee.  The ship will set sail from Sanford at the St. Johns Rivership Company, 433 N. Palmetto Ave.  


The basic $40 package includes ample chips for the casino games, but a full-course dinner awaits those who select a $70 VIP option.   Tickets can be purchased online at, or from any chapter member.  Further details are available at


Winter Park Alumni has funded its scholarship program through a variety of events, most notably chapter-produced casino entertainment, for 17 years.  The amount awarded annually is usually $4,000. 


“We have an aggressive goal for 2014-15 because the need will be much greater,” said Mark Hillery, who chairs the chapter’s scholarship committee.  “Tuition and fees continue to rise, so, we’re doing our part in helping students access educational opportunities that we Kappas credit toward our success.”

Founded in 1911, Kappa Alpha Psi is a service organization with more than 100,000 members in 600-plus college and alumni chapters worldwide.  Winter Park Alumni has served Central Florida since March 1992, focusing on the youth guidance and development.
