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

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – The brothers of Delta Tau Delta fraternity at Moravian College will host a golf tournament in honor of Army Captain Christopher Scott Seifert, a 1997 graduate of Moravian who was tragically killed in Operation: Iraqi Freedom. The tournament will take place on Sunday, April 18 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.
