Students “imprisoned” for charity
The Alpha Delta Pi sorority will host its second annual “Jail n’ Bail” fundraiser Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as a part of this year’s Greek Week.
Students can pay $3 to have their friends handcuffed to sorority members. Participants then report to Kogan Plaza to beg passersby for $10 in order to unlock the cuffs. Funds from the event will help families of ill children through the Ronald McDonald House, the sorority’s national philanthropy, said Lauren Glesby, philanthropy chair for Alpha Delta Pi.
While members of Greek-letter organizations will receive Greek Week points for the event, all students are welcome to participate, Glesby said.
As of Tuesday, the sorority collected more than $400 and 154 “prisoners” signed up.
