So many things going on!

Free Food Fun Friday

Thursday, Sep. 26th 2013 at 9pm-12am

Howard Gittis Student Activities Center (SAC)

Need something free to do? Hungry for some food? Want to have fun? Come out to HootaThon's Free Food Fun Friday!! We're having a raffle, a balloon wall, dance performances, sand art, video games, and even a banner to decorate! We'll give you just a peek at all the fun you could have at the real dance marathon event.

Canning is back!

The second easiest way to earn money towards your fundraising goal is to go canning at local sports events (Phillies, Flyers, Eagles)! We have organized dates/times when members can sign up to go. Sign up on our shared Google Doc that we emailed to you. Look at that! We're making it so easy for you! But you must go to at least one canning event.

Upcoming canning dates...

Oct. 11th (Friday) : 4 pm - 7 pm

Oct. 20th (Sunday): 10 am - 1 pm
