Students to dodge for dollars for charities
RELEASED: January 8, 2009
DANVILLE, KY—On Wednesday, Jan. 14, Alpha Delta Pi sorority and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity will host their annual Midnight Dodgeball tournament in Hazelrigg Gymnasium to raise money for two worthy causes.
This much-anticipated event is attended by nearly the entire campus, says Taylor Noyes '10, new member coordinator for ADPi and organizer for Midnight Dodgeball. Money raised is divided between the two Greek organizations' philanthropies, the Children's Miracle Network and Ronald McDonald House.
Anyone can participate in the dodgeball games. Each team consists of 10 players, and many of the teams design unique team uniforms and team names.
Admission to Midnight Dodgeball is $2 and each team pays $20 to play. This year, donations will also be taken during the event.
"Last year we raised more than $500," Noyes says. "We don't have a specific goal set for this year, but I personally hope we can raise between $800 and $1,000."
To register a team, contact Noyes at email@example.com or SAE's Mitch Hobbs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
