The Knight Student Government will host a Winter Wonderland event to raise funds and donations for local charities from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7, in the Great Hall at the Warwick campus. The public is welcome.
Attendees can ride a mechanical snowboard, have a photo taken inside an inflatable snow globe and enjoy hot cocoa and cookies in return for donations.
Knight Student Government Director of Activities Michael Chapasko said clubs and groups undertake a philanthropic endeavor each semester, and several will be at the event raising money for their chosen charities. For example, he said, the Student Government will sell candy at a candy bar to support the Potter League for Animals, the Pop Culture Club is hosting a toy drive for Scares that Care, which helps medically fragile children, and the Psychology Club will raise money for the Ronald McDonald House in Providence.
