COLLEGE STUDENTS HOLD EVENT TO BENEFIT AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
Madison, NJ (November 9, 2006) —Fairleigh Dickinson University’s senior executive business organization class has taken learning to a new level. Students enrolled in this class are required to think “outside the box” by using their skills. The project requires the students to form a small organization to accomplish work with their peers. The class decided that all money raised for their special project would go directly to the American Heart Association (AHA). They choose this charity because $0.76 of every dollar raised goes back to the community to make advances in the eradication of heart disease.
Professor Gerard Farias said “I am proud of this class that has set itself a challenging goal of $50,000 to support the American Heart Association and every student is working very hard to make this event a success.”
The student organized event will be an extravagant Dinner Gala titled, “Valentine’s Day in December.”
The venue for the gala will be the Pantagis Renaissance in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, from 6:30-11p.m. on December 7, 2006. All aspects of the evening have been designed, managed and structured by the students, including live entertainment in the form of a talented jazz band, ballroom dancing, and a silent auction. Guests will enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, four hours of open bar and gourmet dining for $100 per person.
The class is currently welcoming silent auction donations, sponsors, and guests for their very special benefit evening. For more information please contact Christina Tonzola, Director of Special Events at (908) 783-4423.
