Dude, Where’s My Deepher?

Turn off the Toddlers and Tiaras and redirect your tweets from Honey Boo Boo to Deepher Dudes, because on October 26, it’s all about the fellows and the formal wear on the PLV Campus. If the pageant’s not your slice of pie, maybe pieing a Deepher is?

Every guy participating will represent one or multiple organizations and a panel of judges will score each dude. The 1st place winner will win $100, 2nd place receives $50, and 3rd place wins $25.

In addition to the entertainment, there will be raffles for the audience during the show including gift cards, clothes, etc. And don’t forget, all proceeds will go to Delta Phi Epsilon’s philanthropy, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

And if you prefer pies to pageants, Delta Phi Epsilon will also raise money for their philanthropy at Pie a Deepher on October 24 during Common Hour, where you can help the sisters give back by donating $2 for one pie or $5 for three pies. And then pie a sister for a good cause!

Making Moves for MS

On April 29, every step counts. Join Pace and the MS Society in walking to create a world free of multiple sclerosis as the PLV Campus hosts the annual MS Walk.

Put on  your walking shoes and head to the PLV Campus on April 29 as the MS Society hosts “Walk MS,” their annual walk-a-thon, at Pace.

Dollar by dollar and step by step, Walk MS is changing lives. The largest fundraiser for the National MS Society’s NYC-Southern New York Chapter, Walk MS hopes to raise more than $3 million to help the tens of thousands of people in our communities living with multiple sclerosis. From community programs and services to groundbreaking research, funds raised during Walk MS will get us one step closer to an MS-free world.

Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and body and stops people from moving. We believe that moving is not just something you can or can’t do, but that moving forward is who we are. By participating at Walk MS, you are connected to the potential, the hope, and the momentum of the movement toward a world free of MS.

Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. in Lot D, and the walk will begin at 9:00 a.m. You can choose a scenic 1.5 mile or three-mile route, which will take walkers through the PLV Campus.

Post-walk entertainment includes music provided by a DJ, light snacks, a Wall of Hope, and a Kids Zone with bounce house, face painting/balloon animals, cotton candy, and popcorn.

Click here to volunteer or participate in the walk!

Teams will consist of six people and each person is required to donate $5 ($30 per team). All of the money raised will go to CARE, an organization that helps women, their families, and communities transform their lives through poverty-fighting and disaster-relief programs.

Teams are required to have a team name and must e-mail adollarsdifference@hotmail.com as soon as possible. Spots are limited. Each person on the winning team will receive a $50 Visa gift card.

Almost Anything Goes

Can you sing? Dance? Twirl? Breathe fire? Well, almost anything goes as Alpha Lambda Sigma raises money at their annual talent show on April 12 in PLV.

Each year, the sisters of Alpha Lambda Sigma host their Almost Anything Goes Talent Show to raise money for their philanthropy, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, a leading organization dedicated to identifying, funding, and conducting basic pediatric HIV/AIDS research. This year, they’re not only fundraising for their philanthropy, but for another cause dear to their heart.

Recently a member of Alpha Lambda Sigma lost their home and belongings in a house fire. This year they will be raising money for both of these causes at the ALS Almost Anything Goes Talent Show, which will be held on April 12 at 9:00 p.m. in Willcox Gym. Food and refreshments will be served along with cash prizes for the top three winners!

Haiti On Our Minds

Nine months ago, the world joined forces to help raise money and hope for the people of Haiti. On September 30, the Pace community shows that Haiti is still in our hearts and on our minds. >>Read More

On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, a massive earthquake shook the island of Haiti to its core. More than 200,000 children, men, and women were killed, and an additional three million were in need of emergency aid. The world watched and sprung into activism, but with the passing of time, simply forgot.

On September 30, join us to remember, to help, and to listen as the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Student Development and Campus Activities present Haiti on My Mind–A Fundraiser.

Spend an evening with author and activist, Edwidge Danticat, as she reads selections from her books and reflects on Haiti’s past, present, and future at the Schimmel Center in NYC.

Suggested donation is $10, but no one will be turned away. Autographed copies of Danticat’s works will also be available for $20.
