Student groups to raise money for Make-A-Wish
Shippensburg University’s Activities Program Board (APB) and Student Government Association (SGA) will be hosting fundraisers for the Make-A-Wish foundation leading up to the fall concert.
There will be a T-shirt tie dye event the week of Oct. 30 in the Ceddia Union Building amphitheater.
Each shirt will be decorated with the words “wish upon a ship” on the front, with a list of the student groups sponsoring the event listed on the back.
A $10 donation will allow students to receive a T-shirt to tie dye at the event. APB will also be accepting donations.
SGA will be canning and before the concert, and it will have a tent to accept donations during admissions.
The fall concert will feature Andy Grammer and Jesse McCartney. McCartney is one of the biggest contributors of Make-A-Wish, and APB is trying to work with McCartney and Grammer to join the program, according to SGA Vice President Crystal Hartman.
The concert hosted by APB will be held on Nov. 12. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now. Admission for Shippensburg University students is $25 and admission for the general public is $35. A meet-and-greet with McCartney will be held before the show. Tickets for the meet and greet are $40.
SGA will determine at a later date the Make-A-Wish child that the money raised will be donated to.
