Together, the student chapters volunteered to bake, decorate, walk around to various offices on campus, and set up a table in Fidel to sell for donations: sweets, small organza bags, and tote boxes with various office supplies and mints. Two handmade bears, also with pink ribbons, were donated by Kate Wavrik (PE ’02). Both chapters raised over $500 in two short days. AADE will donate $265 to the Patricia K. Jennings Foundation, and SPE will donate $415 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
