Space for raffle

By Jessica Lewis, News Editor

The Student Government Association [SGA] will be raffling off a parking spot located behind Breslin Hall to commuting students.

"We [SGA] have a parking spot behind Breslin Hall, we [SGA] are raffling it by selling tickets for a dollar," said Mike Hershfield, Fundraising Chairman.

Tickets will go on sale for a dollar starting Monday, Sept. 13 in the SGA office, room 207 in the Student Center, and at various locations around campus from 9 a.m. – 3p.m. Only commuting students are eligible to win the parking space. The winner of the parking spot will have use of it for the fall semester.

"SGA had parking spots years ago and we wanted to revitalize the raffle and make a lot of money like it used to," Hershfield said. Money from the raffle will be disbursed to SGA contingency fund for clubs to use, or for funding a specific event.

The drawing will be held in the Student Center Theater on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 11:15 a.m.
