Alpha Delta Pi to raise “ball” for students
The Alpha Delta Pi sorority will sponsor its annual “Jail and Bail” fundraiser Thursday to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Alpha Delta Pi President Katie Barrios wrote in an e-mail that students will sign up their friends to be “jailed” in exchange for a $3 donation to the Ronald McDonald House, the sorority’s official charity. Jailed students then get an e-mail telling them to report to Kogan Plaza. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Jailed students are paired with an Alpha Delta Pi member when they arrive in Kogan Plaza and are led around campus to raise their “bail.” Students who collect the most money during this time are awarded prizes for their efforts.
“Both students who are Greek and non-Greek have signed up to participate in the event,” Barrios said.
Barrios said she plans to “jail” Greek Affairs Director Courtney Barry and added that “many students have also jailed professors in years past.”
