Charity Week Events Announced

This year's charity week will benefit the Catie Hoch foundation. The Catie Hoch Foundation is dedicated to helping children while they are in treatment for cancer. A child’s cancer diagnosis is devastating and the strains on the family are enormous – emotional, physical and financial. The foundation strives to help alleviate some of those burdens. They make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.

This year's events include a trip to NYC to see hairspray, Bingo, the ever-popular charity auction, pie your student leaders and a wine tasting dinner which includes a multi-course dinner with complimentary wines for those 21 and older.

If you have any questions or concerns about the 2008 Charity Week events please feel free to contact us at anytime at the Student Events Board office, ext. 2524.
