St. Lawrence's chapter of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, Alpha Omicron, recently gave over $2,500 to the Lungs for Life Foundation, the largest single donation in the Rochester, New York-based organization's history.

Members of the fraternity engaged in fund-raising activities in the fall. Recently, brothers Robert Bayliss '06, Hanover, NH; Lawson Parker '06, Horseheads, NY; George Roby '07, Winchester, MA; Evan Kivlen '06, Onchiota, NY; and Mike Peterson '06, Saco, ME, presented the gift to Robert and Stephanie White, of the Lungs for Life Foundation. The foundation is an all-volunteer organization "dedicated to assisting individuals and families affected by cystic fibrosis." ATO plans an annual fund-raising event to benefit the organization.

The gift, which ATO brother Domenico Pirrotta '07, Rensselaer, NY, says resulted from the participation of the campus and Canton communities, represents approximately 10 percent of all the money ever received by Lungs for Life.
