Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23, 2018

 

On Tuesday, Plaza celebrated its annual Multicultural Thanksgiving Feast on the Commons. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators brought in an incredible variety of food, including everything from honey-glazed ham to chicken biriyani to curry to turkey and stuffing to lasagna. Attendees also enjoyed an amazing selection of desserts.

Dishes were sold for donations, and the event raised more than $800 to support Student Life projects. Stay tuned for details on our next initiative, Winter Wishes, a holiday program to help give children a wonderful holiday season by granting their fondest wishes!

Thank you to our many amazing volunteer servers, cooks, bakers, and donors! We could not have done it without you.

If you missed the event and want to donate, please see Professor Butchy in the Student Life office.
