Subject: Re: Important Request from Shernell: Pakistan Earthquakes

SARC is hosting a mini-activities fair today and tomorrow from
4:30-6:30 in Wean Commons.  You're welcome to setup shop to solicit
for donations.  I've CCed our Homecoming chair, Avni, so that you can
get in touch with her.

Also, we're also hosting the Homecoming Chili Cookoff this Saturday;
you're welcome to setup there as well (we'll be able to make an
announcement to the crowd).

Outside of SARC, I'm on the E-board of Greek Council.  We're always
looking for new initiatives to involve the Greek community.  If you'd
like our help with the logistics of any event, please let us know.
I've also CCed the Greek Council President, Bruce Burnett, on this

As for the Candlelight Vigil, can I get more information on the
logistics?  I can talk to Alumni Relations about including it in the
Homecoming program.
