BENEFITING: Emory University
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2016
All donations will benefit the ALS Center at Emory University.
We are giving up our third quarter break at the Marist vs St. Pius X football game on Friday, September, 9, 2016 to pass the hat and raise money for the Emory ALS Center. We also have a special Ice Bucket Challenge happening at the same time...
If we raise $5,000 by the end of the 3rd quarter the Marist and St. Pius X band directors get wet. The athletics director is in at $6,000 and if we reach $7,000 the dean of students gets it.
You can help us meet these goals and dump the ice water on them!
