CCC Fulton Clubs declare a “Penny War”

February 10th, 2015 Posted in Fulton Campus News

Photo 3Fulton Campus clubs and organizations raised money with a “Penny War” last semester. Sponsored by the Student Government Organization, the goal was to earn the most points. Pennies gave positive points, while silver and bills gave negative points. The club with the most points at the end of the competition won all of the money raised to be donated to the winning club’s charity. Over $1,900 was raised in less than seven days!

The Veteran’s Club was declared the winner with the Nursing Club and Healthy Living Club in second and third place respectively. Kelly Newton, president of SGO, was invited by the Veteran’s Club to go shopping for toys to be donated to Toys for Tots. Kmart of Liverpool helped the money go even further by giving an additional 20% discount. The club was able to purchase over $2,300 worth of toys.

Michael Fochtman, Student Engagement Coordinator and Advisor to SAB and SGO, congratulated the Fulton campus community. “What an incredible accomplishment, Fulton campus community! We have one generous group of people learning and working within our buildings. You should all be very proud to call yourselves members of our team. Congratulations!”
