On Friday, Nov. 30th, fraternity Alpha Kappa Lambda and sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha teamed up to throw a “Christmas in November” themed party from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Science East rooms 204 and 205.
ASA Service and Giving Chairman Sierra Schreiber came up with the idea to throw the party in order to raise money for a heap of different organizations.
Most of the proceeds went to Special Olympics while some went to the Underground Railroad, Girls on the Run and the Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation.
The party had a $5 admission fee. There were many activities like Christmas cookie decorating, pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, bingo, trivia, board games and even an ugly sweater competition. Winners received a multitude of prizes for winning games and competitions.
The event was attended mostly by Greek life students.
Christmas music was played, and the room was decorated accordingly with tinsel and other Christmas-themed decor. A snack table was set up with goodies and drinks free for attendees.
ASA Vice President of Alumnae and Heritage Kayla Shepard attended the event and was in support of the ASA and AKL partnership.
“ASA and AKL decided to collaborate on this event as a way to create Greek unity on campus,” Shepard said. “Both of our organizations wanted an opportunity to give back to the community as well as create a fun, Christmas-inspired event that can get SVSU students together to prepare for the upcoming holidays.”
AKL Service Chair David Varga also helped plan and coordinate the event.
“It’s something different and out of the norm to do, and it turns raising money into something enjoyable,” Varga said. “I supported this idea and agreed to join in this endeavor by bringing in AKL.”
