Richard Ganahl’s Public Relations Cases and Problems class launched a campaign, “Safe and Sound Slumber Fund,” this semester to raise money for new mattresses and bed frames for The Women’s Center in Bloomsburg. As a part of the campaign’s special events, a volleyball tournament was held on campus drawing more than 150 participants and raising more than $500. In total with other fundraising activities and events, the class has raised more than $3,500 this semester.
The winning volleyball team received $125 dollars worth of prizes donated from Pizza Hut, Balzanos, Stephs subs, Olive Garden, Weis, Bloomsburg Local movie theatre and Subway. In addition the winning team also received specially designed Safe and Sound Slumber Fund T-shirts. Bloomsburg’s radio station WBUQ 91.1 FM had two of their disc jockeys play music to pump up tunes throughout the tournament. Winning team was Team Bubbles, which featured Josh Hunger, Edward Donnelly, Travis Potter, Dayton Broyan, Matt Cashman and Ricky Cashman.
