Bond through volunteering with Helping Hands

Helping Hands is holding an event based on a recently conducted group survey where members voted in a nearly split decision on whether they should hold a trivia night or a volunteering event that had to do with coloring.

With the results so close, the group decided to combine both into one event and hold a 15-question trivia game followed by a Color a Smile sheet. There will also be free pizza and prizes.

The meeting will be held on Monday, March 27, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Kirkhof Center room 2266.

Participate in Relay For Life

On Friday, March 31 the American Cancer Society will be holding their Relay For Life event.

Before the fundraiser, they will be serving dinner to honor cancer survivors and caregivers. This will take place in the Fieldhouse from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Cancer survivors and caregivers will be served for free.

Following the dinner is the overnight fundraiser. This will run for 12 hours from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. The cost to attend is $15 and all proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

Throughout the night there will be games, performers and activities to keep attendees awake and entertained.

Attend VSA’s annual pho night

The Vietnamese Cultural Association (VCA) is hosting their annual pho night on Friday from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Niemeyer Multipurpose Room.

VCA will be donating a portion of the earnings to The Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. Attendees can purchase a bowl of pho for $8, pandan waffles for $5 and Vietnamese coffee for $2. Those who spend $10 on one order will also be entered in a giveaway raffle, with three potential winners.

This event is BYOB (Bring Your Own Bowl) but there will be bowls available for those who cannot bring one.

Attendees can also compete in an eating competition. The first person to finish a large bowl will be crowned “pho king.” Only ten people can compete in this challenge.

Besides food, there will also be karaoke, new e-board members will be revealed and VSA stickers will be sold for $2 each.
