Two of my great former students, James and Paige, organized this!
Lewisburg’s Cheers to Charity
This event was originally inspired by Professor Johnson Cramer’s Strategies and Policy management class. We are a group of six seniors who aspired not only to exceed in the class, but also achieve a lasting effect on the Bucknell and Lewisburg communities. Our original goals were to: find a way in which we could raise a substantial donation towards a charitable cause, stimulate the local business in downtown Lewisburg, and bring together the Lewisburg community with Bucknell’s staff and students. We aim to reach these goals by hosting a downtown event called “Lewisburg’s Cheers to Charity” scheduled for Saturday, April 10th. We have partnered with various downtown businesses such as The Bull Run Inn, Temperance House, Brasserie Louis, and the Towne Tavern to ensure various discounts on food and beverages during the event. The event will be open to all customers and donations are strongly encouraged. This event will be co-sponsored by Jessica Hess and the Multicultural Student Services. While event t-shirts will be on sale to all customers, the shirt will not gain you admittance into the establishments during bar hours. The rules and restrictions of each individual establishment will apply to all patrons. This includes presenting a photo ID in order to gain admittance during bar hours.
We feel that this event will not only benefit the Haiti relief effort, but the Lewisburg and Bucknell communities as a whole.
The following locations will be participating in the event and offering specials on food and drinks:
Bull Run Inn (12 pm – 2am) – $1.00 Lionshead, Specials on Rum & Cokes, Beer pitchers, and Wings
