On March 30th, our chapter held a successful Beat the Crap Out of Poverty fundraiser.  If you’re not familiar with the concept, this is how it works:

  • We acquire a written-off (yet mostly intact) car
  • We park it near the University Centre
  • We bring a sledgehammer, safety goggles, gloves and waivers
  • We let you do the rest

For $2 a smack, $5 for a 30-second brawl or $10 for a full-minute smack-down, this event drew students from far and wide who came to vent their pre-finals frustration.  It was a great day with lots of laughs.

Our local CBC news even dropped by to see the action!  The event was featured on the radio and the evening news.  Check out a montage they put together here.

We would like to thank Avalon Towing for graciously donating the car for our destruction and for delivering it to campus.  This event would not have been possible without their support.

We would also like to congratulate the event coordinator, Steve Collins, and all volunteers who helped to pull off such an awesome fundraiser.
