Illinois State University PRSSA volunteered to work the concession stands at Redbird Arena for the basketball game against Indiana State University on Wednesday, Feb. 26. Members took shifts throughout the night from 5:00-7:00 and 7:00-9:00 p.m. For all of the money earned throughout the shifts that PRSSA members worked, our chapter got a percentage of the earnings. The development committee thought this fundraiser would be enjoyable for everyone working it with the excitement of the basketball game. The fundraiser went very well! Our Chapter raised a total of $119. The members had a fun time working together and making treats for the hungry basketball fans. Our Chapter plans on using a majority of the money raised from the concessions fundraiser for semi-formal on March 28 at Firehouse Pizza and Pub in Uptown Normal.
