In the first half of Friday night’s football game against Bishop Miege, members of MV Outreach participated in a fundraiser selling both 50/50 raffle tickets and Krispy Kreme doughnuts for $1. The club ended their night raising $640.80.

According to freshman Nicole Crist, the event went very well.

“I think [the fundraiser] was pretty effective because we sold a lot of 50/50 raffle tickets and the doughnuts [were] good and only $1,” Crist said.

Junior Emily Proctor chose to partake in the event because of her love for the club.

“I decided to participate because I think [the fundraiser is] for a really great cause and I love volunteering for MV Outreach and just being in the environment of it,” Proctor said. “It’s just a really good club.”

Spending her night selling raffle tickets with Proctor, sophomore Hannah Davie decided to sign up to help because of the convenient setting and her enjoyment of service.

“I did the fundraiser because I was already going to be here anyway, so I thought I might as well sign up because it’s pretty easy,” Davie said. “I like being able to give back and do a lot of community service.”

Davie believes her favorite part of the fundraising experience is witnessing the end result.

“I think the best part is seeing the amount of money you raise at the end and knowing what it’s going to,” Davie said.

Because of the club’s mission and inclusivity, Proctor encourages students to participate in future MV Outreach activities.

“There’s always something to do in MV Outreach and it’s for everybody,” Proctor said. “Literally anyone can join and it’s just a club that everyone just loves and can enjoy participating in.”
