UP Beta Sigma holds shooting tilt

The UP Beta Sigma Fraternity Shooting Club is holding the Jesus R. Jayme Shooting Competition, the 1STBeta Sigma Cup, on March 21 and 22 at the Armscor Facility in Marikina City to help raise funds for the victims of the recent Taal Volcano eruption.

The Level 2 Philippine Shooters and Match Officers Confederation-sanctioned match with 10 stages will also honor Jesus R. Jayme, the late organizing founder and first president of the Beta Sigma Fraternity, which was organized at the University of the Philippines barely a month after the country gained independence in 1946.

Senator Emmanuel Pacquiao, who will deliver the inspiration message, will  lead key  government and PNP  officials,  including  Police Lt.  Gen. Camillo Cascolan and Director General Aaron Aquino of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). 

The event organizers said that it was initially planned to raise funds for the Fraternity’s worthwhile projects, but due to the Taal volcano’s eruption they decided to redirect proceeds and designate it “for the needs of those affected by this dreadful disaster.”
