Event Alert: Thanksgiving semi-formal

Ariana Beedie

The Housing and Residence Life staff will host a Thanksgiving dance, giving students the chance to give to charity and celebrate before the holidays.

The Thanksgiving Semi-Formal will be held Nov. 22 in Carter Hall. Students are asked to bring a canned food item or $1 for entry to the dance.

The dance begins at 8 p.m. All proceeds from the event goes to Tri-State Food Bank to help families and locals in need.

Jessica Hearne, McDonald West Apartments Area Coordinator, said there haven’t been Thanksgiving events like this in the past.

“We hope people dress up and have a good time,” Hearne said.

The event, sponsored by McDonald West Resident Assistants, is a semi-formal dance which requires attendees to dress appropriately.

“We don’t want to turn anyone away,” Hearne said. “Whatever they define as nice.”

Free food and beverages will be provided at the event.
