Football fundraiser collects $8,000 for Katrina relief

A fund drive at the Sept. 3 Phoenix football game coordinated by Kappa Sigma fraternity, along with other student volunteers, raised more than $8,000 for Elon's Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. Details...

The students collected donations for the American Red Cross at the Rhodes Stadium entrance and at concession stands within the stadium. Donations were matched dollar-for-dollar by Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse. The funds collected amounted to just over $4,000, which doubles to more than $8,000 with the Lowe's match. The Kappa Sigma effort was led by John Kalas with help from volunteers under the leadership of Caitlin Pascarelli.

Elon's fund drive continues this week with collection tables in Moseley Center and in dining halls. See Elon's Katrina Relief home page for more details...
