Exciting news from Syracuse University, where we’re piloting the She’s the First campus sponsorship program!
After quite a bit of discussion and planning, my residence hall council is organizing an exciting spring event to benefit She’s the First! I was thrilled when, after pitching the idea of sponsoring a girl, my fellow council members agreed to let the proceeds of an upcoming inter-hall event go toward helping a girl achieve her dreams through an education.
We’re planning an afternoon concert and carnival, tentatively titled “Baked Goods and Beats,” which we hope will feature performances by student musicians in the residence halls, as well as delicious baked goods provided by a legendary student baker and donated treats from bakeries near SU. Add carnival games and prizes to the mix, and this will be an afternoon to remember!
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be blogging about the steps the council and I are taking to make this big idea become a reality. From getting in touch with potential sponsors to creating promotional materials, and all the little details in between, I hope to create a useful model for an event that other students can implement on their campuses to benefit She’s the First!
