BR-Livestrong Notice-Board announcement

the first ever BonaResponds-Livestrong Bake Sale and Work Day!

Looking for some baked goods? Looking to help Cancer patients/suriviors? Do both at once this weekend!

BonaReponds is teaming up with Livestrong (Lance Armstrong's group) to host a bake sale to raise money for the Livestrong Foundation. The Bake Sale will be in The RC from 11 to 2:00 on Friday. (depending how much food we get we also plan on having it at Olean High School on Saturday and any remaining product will be sold at the Allegany Park and Shop).

Baked good pledges have been going slowly (not surprising since most students do not have easy access to an oven etc), so this would be a GREAT time for faculty and staff to "step up" and donate some cookies, pies, etc.

Baked goods can be dropped off to Jenifer Spencer (Upstairs in Murphy) or Taken to the Allegany Park and Shop.

Additionally, in true BonaResponds tradition, we will also be organizing work days to correspond with the Bake Sale. Work begins at 3:00 on FRIDAY--come after your last class) and then begins again at 10:00 on Saturday. We will focus on the homes of a few cancer patients but also work on building a wheel chair ramp for a former University employee with MS, and help the Red Cross in Jamestown. We'd love extra help!
