Cornhuskin’ Results in $1,000 for Charities

Last month’s Cornhuskin’ competitions have resulted in $1,000 in donations to charity.

The Residence Hall Association (RHA), which sponsors the penny barrel competition, has donated the money earned to Cookies for Kids Cancer. This non-profit, which uses cookie sales to raise awareness and money to support pediatric cancer research, was founded by a Meredith alumna. With a matching gift, RHA’s donation totaled $800.

The Class of 2011 won the Can Art competition, and was able to donate the proceeds from the can recycling to the non-profit of their choice.

The juniors decided to donate the $284.40 raised through Can Art to Interact of Wake County. The non-profit supports victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
