Delta Tau Delta to Hold Golf Tournament in Honor of Christopher Seifert

Bethlehem, Pa., February 28, 2005—The brothers of Delta Tau Delta fraternity at Moravian College will host their second annual golf tournament in honor of Army Captain Christopher Scott Seifert, a 1997 graduate of Moravian who was tragically killed in Operation: Iraqi Freedom. Last year's effort raised $11,000. This year's tournament will take place on Sunday, April 17 with tee times at both 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Southmoore Public Golf Course (Bath, Pa). The cost will be $80 per golfer (includes golf, cart, food and drinks, and prizes). Proceeds will benefit the Benjamin Seifert College Scholarship Fund.

Seifert, 27, was killed on March 22, 2003 by a troubled fellow soldier who threw a hand grenade into Seifert’s tent while he was sleeping at Camp Pennsylvania, Kuwait. Seifert was a member of the 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He left behind his wife, Theresa L. (Terri) Flowers, also a 1997 graduate of Moravian, and their four-month-old son, Benjamin.

Seifert, a history major, was an active student at Moravian. He was a 26-Pointer, a campus ambassador who took prospective students and their parents on tours of the college and answered their questions and concerns, and a founding member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity. Seifert was a lighting technician for theater productions and a member of the drama club. Off campus, Seifert donated his time to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley. He was also a member of the Reserves Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at Lehigh University.
