Bloomington, Indiana - An IU Freshman has a new car after hitting a half-court shot at Assembly Hall Sunday.

Sigma Alpha Mu hosted their fourth annual "Ball at the Hall 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament" benefiting the Lauri S. Bauer Foundation and the Elyse Marcus Legacy Foundation

The 3 on 3 tournament invites college and local students to come together in a friendly competition at Assembly Hall. This year there were 40 participating teams who raised almost $30,000 for the two non-profit charities that hit close home to the men of Sigma Alpha Mu.

The Lauri S. Bauer Foundation for Sudden Loss was created seven years ago in memory of Lauri S. Bauer; a loving, fun and dedicated Mom to three boys including two Sigma Alpha Mu brothers at Indiana University, Alex and Jake. The efforts of the foundation raise money to support programs for children and families who have experienced sudden loss. The Elyse Marcus Legacy Foundation was established in honor of Sigma Alpha Mu brother Andrew who's mom lived by the philosophy of Live, Love and Give.
