Dollar Day at the Dome is Nov. 6; donations benefit United Way of Central New York
Before the Syracuse University football team kicks off against Louisville on Saturday, Nov. 6, at noon, more than 200 student members of SU’s fraternities and sororities and other student organizations will be stationed at Carrier Dome entrances, on the Quad and across campus soliciting donations for the United Way of Central New York.
In its 12th year, Dollar Day at the Dome is an annual fundraising event, part of SU’s United Way campaign. Patrons who donate will be investing in the more than 102 local programs and services that benefit from the Central New York United Way.
SU is in the midst of its 2010 United Way campaign, “Live United,” which runs through Dec. 10. Leading SU’s campaign efforts this year are Patricia Stith, assistant provost for equity and inclusion in Academic Affairs, and Tony Callisto, director and chief of the Department of Public Safety. Stith and Callisto serve as SU’s campaign chair and vice chair, respectively.
Other United Way campus campaign events include silent auctions, barbecues, a chili cook-off, an art auction and craft fairs. Last year, SU raised $200,000 through campus participation in the campaign.
