Honors College to raise funds at Max & Erma’s Thursday

The Marshall University College Student Association Steering Committee will have a fundraiser at Max & Erma’s all day Thursday.

If customers show the Honors College fundraiser flyer to their server, 15 percent of their bill will be donated to the Honors College.

Steering committee faculty advisor and associate dean of the Honors College Susan Gilpin said the purpose of the fundraiser is to raise money for the college’s picnic April 21.

Gilpin said it will also raise money for the steering committee service event. Gilpin said the service event this semester will be a sock drive for children in the after school program at the St. John’s House Learning and Development Center.

Burgess said this is the first time the committee has done a fundraiser like this and she is excited to see how it works out for the committee.

Gilpin said she hopes word spreads about the fundraiser and people will come to Max & Erma’s to support the project.

Gilpin said the committee members will be going to Max & Erma’s at 5 p.m.

“And if other students want to go early evening, it would be fun to have a bunch of Honors College students there at the same time,” Gilpin said.

The fundraiser flyers may be shown to a server in electronic or print form. The flyer can be found at the Honors College website. The flyer will also be available on the college’s social media accounts.
