Happy Valentine’s Day RIT!

In preperation for this hallmark holdiay, the sisters ofZeta Tau Alpha and Alpha Sigma Alpha hosted a valentines inspired date auctionand dance. The event was created to benefit Hati Relief Fund (Zeta Tau Alpha),and Breast Cancer Awareness (Alpha Sigma Alpha).

The event was held last Thursday in the SAU Café. The girlstransformed the eatery into a runway and stage. Each girl walked out to thesong of her choice, and her profile was displayed on the big screen next to thestage (name, hometown, major, year, perfect date description, and a metaphorfor love…. my favorie being “love is like a grape”). Girls were escorted tostage by suited escorts, and biding was hosting by film student Brendan Nagle.

The opening bid started at $20 and climed to its peak of$200 at the end of the night.

Zeta Tau Alpha raised $1745.97 for the HaitiRelief Fund and Alpha Sigma Alpha raised $738.97 for Breast Cancer Awareness.Awesome event overall, for a great cause, and got everyone in the holiday mood.
