Star & Lamp Flashback: Pi Kappa Phi goes to the World Series

The Ability Experience is a nonprofit organization which helps people with disabilities. The fraternity’s largest fund-raising and awareness event, the Journey of Hope, has benefited from the generosity of the Atlanta Braves over the past two years.
