On May 5th, 2022, our Tucson based networking group, Lambda Lambda Lambda, along with our Involta Tucson team, held our First Annual Charity Golf Tournament to support the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA). It was a day of celebration, not only because it was Cinco de Mayo, but because, together, with the donations gathered from golfers and businesses, we raised over $22,000.
Porsha Martinez, Field Marketing & Event Coordinator, Tri-Lamb Founder, and Volunteer Rockstar, kicked off the day with an enthusiastic speech before sending our golfers on their way. Over the course of the tournament, three of our exceptional volunteers, James Carter, Emma Sedrel, and Christophe Valton drove a golf cart to each hole and asked golfers if they’d like to provide further donations.
Once each party wrapped up their golf game, they made their way to the club house to carry on the fun. A fiesta was thrown in honor of SACASA and their mission. Lambda Lambda Lambda, CODAC, and Involta presented Katlyn Monje, Director at SACASA, with a check showcasing the total amount of money raised to wrap up the evening. Pictured below is the team who pulled this successful event together.

Lambda Lambda Lambda
Revenge of the Nerds is back with a modern spin. If you remember, the Lambda Lambda Lambda (ΛΛΛ or Tri-Lambs) were a small co-ed social fraternity, unaffiliated with the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils, dedicated to the enjoyment and enrichment of technology and the camaraderie of its members. Tri-Lambs did not discriminate and were founded on the grounds of change. Lambda Lambda Lambda transformed what a fraternity meant back to its fundamental meaning – “openness of the fraternity” in which to create a “network of support” among its brothers and sisters.
For a long time, Tucson lacked a group such as this, and we decided to change that mid-pandemic. Since its founding in 2020, Lambda Lambda Lambda has grown from five attendees to close to fifty attendees with twenty official members. This exceptional group meets on the third Thursday of each month at Arizona Sands Club. Check out our event’s page for more information.
The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA) provides crisis services, advocacy, support, therapy and education for individuals and families impacted by sexual trauma. We provide a safe place for survivors to heal, gain strength, learn coping skills, and develop trusting, caring relationships.
Unfortunately, sexual violence is common:
Nearly 1 in 5 women – and 1 in 71 men – have been raped in their lifetime.
1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually assaulted by the age of 18.
1 in 5 women is sexually assaulted while in college.
More than 25% of transgender individuals have been sexually assaulted after the age of 13.
SACASA is here to help.
People come to CODAC for many reasons. Some are overwhelmed by loss or consumed by anxiety. Others may be coping with depression or substance use disorders. For many, it’s about feeling healthier from the inside out.
Drastic changes in our life, trauma and biological and chemical irregularities can lead to substance use or cause mental and physical health disorders. But there is great reason for hope! CODAC is here to help. We have the services you need for a healthier and happier life.
