The Harrisburg campus Student Bar Association
and Trial Advocacy Honor Society
held two fundraisers in support of a local 9-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable tumor on her brain stem.
She is one of only 150 children diagnosed with this type of tumor every year. Her family is getting her state of the art treatment to help her live a normal life.
The first fundraiser was Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at Arooga’s, in Harrisburg, where 15% of a participant’s bill went to the cause.
The second fundraiser was a pool tournament held on Thursday, September 16, 2010 from 9 p.m. to midnight at Sambucca’s in Harrisburg. There were 16 Widener students who participated in the tournament and 25 spectators who came out to support the cause. The pool tournament raised $455.21, with 2nd-year student Adam Gibbons winning.
