One of the many great annual events on campus is held by Delta Phi Epsilon sorority in the spring, called Mr. RIT. This year, I decided to do more than just check it out: I decided to join in on it!
The purpose of the event is to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. This is done through ticket and wristband sales, as well as leaving it up to each contestant to raise money themselves. In fact, that's one of the awards you can win. Here's how they're broken down:
Mr. Congeniality -- Raise the most money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Fan Favorite -- Win the audience vote
and of course, the coup de grace...
Mr. RIT -- Decided by judges panel.
The judges panel is aparently going to have RITchie on it. I'm a little intimidated. Anyways, anyone who can should come down to the event, it will be a ton of fun! There will be a dance portion, Q&A, formalwear, and of course, a talent portion.Here's the facebook event!
What's my talent? Rapping of course! And in order to raise money for the cause, I've decided to volunteer to shave my head if enough people donate.Here's the facebook event for that!
Now, the contest is this Thursday, so that's when donations should be in by!So donate here if you're so inclined!
No matter the results, this event is sure to be a blast.
