Cheers and laughter filled the lecture hall 209 on Wednesday, March 22, as Students Take Action (STA) held its annual March Madness fundraiser, featuring a “Minute to Win It” themed competition. Each class nominated a representative to compete for a cookie party and a “surprise” reward. Suggested donations for the event was $5. Catering provided by Chick-Fil-A!
STA extends a special thank you to all the students, staff, and faculty who came and ate lunch, volunteered, cheered and donated money to this awesome cause. All monies raised from the competition, T-shirt sales, and donations, will be given to the Indigent Care Fund. This fund is a blessing to patients at the School who cannot afford the treatment they need. A special thank you to the students behind the scenes who made this event happen. A significant amount of hard work and dedication was put forth to kick off this event. Thanks for all the support!
