About the Mega Musical Chairs Fundraising Event
Starting as a fundraiser to raise money for the Haiti earthquake survivors, the Mega-Musical Chairs Fundraiser has evolved into a fundraiser to help all! The gigantic game brings back the warm memories of childhood games. Not only will players enjoy themselves and play a competitive game of musical chairs, but they will also be giving back to their community; for, ALL proceeds of the fundraiser goes to the WINNER'S non-profit charity of choice! Past winning charities have been the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, Fallen Heroes of America, USA Children & Women's Hospital, Camp Kesem. The 2016 MMC Event raised over $5,500!
You may wonder, “Why not play for one philanthropy rather than letting the winner choose the charity?” The ideology behind the fundraiser is to underscore an understanding that adversity and exploitation are international problems that cannot be neatly localized to any one region of the world. Through this event, we hope to educate the students here on the duties and obligations required of all future leaders while also teaching them vital lessons on cultural competency and international issues. As future South Alabama alumni, the weight of responsibility placed upon our shoulders will only grow heavier as we grow older, and it’s never too early to begin improving the lives of others. Our opportunity to change the world begins today.
