UT STUDENTS HOST “FAIR-STYLE” HURRICANE FUNDRAISER ON WEDNESDAY
Mechanical bull riding, other activities to encourage campus-wide donations
TAMPA — A fair-style fundraiser to support Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria disaster relief efforts — featuring a lighthearted nod to Texas with mechanical bull riding — will be held at UT on Wednesday, Sept. 27.
The event will be held in the courtyard behind the Vaughn Center from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. It is a student-coordinated event, sponsored by UT’s PEACE Volunteer Center, Student Productions and Student Government.
Additionally, approximately 20 student organizations will host activities to encourage students to donate to the effort.
All funds will be donated to the Red Cross, and physical donations will be collected by a local nonprofit.
Media is welcome to cover the event. Please contact the Office of Public Information and Publication, or the fundraiser organizers (firstname.lastname@example.org), with any questions.
