Students Organize Dinner to Fund Katrina Relief Trip

FEB. 17, 2006--Support the Destination Gulf Coast Spring Break new student organization at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls at a charitable dinner sponsored by Chartwells Dining Services from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28 in the River Room of Rodli Commons.            

The dinner will be a buffet-style with roast pork, potatoes, vegetables, beverage and cake. There will be a silent auction, slide show of the students' relief trip to Gulf Port, Miss., as well as a display featuring of the organization. Students who helped out the Gulf Coast over J-Term and students planning the relief trip over spring break, March 13-17, will be walking around throughout the dinner to and answer any questions people may have about the organization or the trips.

Tickets can be purchased at the Information Desk at the Hagestad Student Center. Prices are $5 per person and $3.50 for children under 10 years of age.

Each year Chartwells Dining Service sponsors a charitable dinner and chooses a worthy organization in which to donate their food and services. All proceeds will go to the Destination Gulf Coast Spring Break organization.

The organization has also set up an account through the UW-River Falls Foundation to help fund the trip. To donate, send a check payable to the UW-RF Foundation, 410 South Third Street, River Falls, Wis., 54022, and write "Destination" in the memo line of your check. Credit card donations can be made by calling the UW-RF Advancement Office toll-free at 877-258-6647.
