2013 Westminster College AV WEEK Recap
The AV staff and the Audio Visual Alumni Council hosted a chili cook-off during Homecoming to help raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We raised over $460 for this worthy cause. AV alum and AVAC Vice President Rachael Hoffman cooked her way to the top with Healthy Hoffs Pumpkin Quinoa Chili. Good friends, good food, and great charity made this event a great success. Thanks to all that came out and helped us put the heat on Cystic Fibrosis!
AV Services, Titan Radio, and WCN teamed up to host a tailgate for the Titan Terror Project. Many students, faculty, and staffed dropped by to enjoy Starbucks coffee, cookies made by Tracie Adams, and chocolates by Mona’s Chocolates. Our competitive spirits arose while playing cornhole and ladderball.
