Gannon Students Celebrate the Spirit of Giving
Posted: December 4, 2013
"What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store, what
if, perhaps, it means a little bit more." The ever-famous Christmas
story of The Grinch is the theme of the first annual student-run
Christmas party at Gannon University.
Students of the Advertising and Promotions Club (A&P) are
leading the way in exhibiting the true meaning of the holidays -
giving back. The club is hosting "How A&P Saved Christmas"
Thursday, Dec. 12 from 7 - 11p.m. to help raise money and
collect gifts for 50 children enrolled at the Martin Luther King
The Activities Programming Board (APB), another student-run
organization on campus, also recognized the importance of giving
back and helping their fellow students. APB awarded A&P the
Late Knight Grant to assist in funding for the party to include
free food and activities for the attendees.
A&P is asking the University's groups and organizations to
donate gift baskets to be raffled off as part of a Chinese auction.
The group with the most creative basket will win a $100 Visa gift
card. To win a basket from the auction, attendees are asked to
bring a $5 gift that will be donated to the MLK Center.
"The event is for students to hang out and have fun in a safe
environment on campus," said A&P President Alex Bohman. "But
it's also about the spirit of giving, learning from one another,
and coming together as a community during the holidays.
