Wilson Hall raised $12,112 for the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital by hosting its second annual mini-dance marathon. In partnership with the University of South Carolina Dance Marathon which raises over half a million dollars every year through the Miracle Network, the money raised will go to support bettering the lives of children at the hospital. Held in the Nash Student Center from 5:00-10:00 PM on February 10, the event featured music, games, activities and food for students of all ages. In addition to raising money through admission to the event, the committee raised money through a Pie-a-Teacher event, a donut eating contest, bake sales, tee shirt & bracelet sales, and the solicitation of donations through the Miracle Network’s website. The student-led event was organized by the following members of the Executive Committee: Steph Areford (Chair), Kirsten Fisher, Hailey Ford, Breland Land, Ingrid Singleton and Amelia Weston. Ms. Liz Affronti served as the faculty advisor for the committee.
