Watermelon Bash a Success

December 8th, 2014

This past September, the chapter hosted its annual “Watermelon Bash” fundraising event. Teams from various Greek and Club organizations competed in various watermelon-based events. Some examples include a speed eating, watermelon carving, watermelon smashing, and tug-of-war. The event was a great success. In total, approximately $1300 was raised, all of which was donated to the Troy Unity House.

Enjoy some pictures of the day’s events and activities. Watermelon Bash Photos:
