Giving Slime, Getting Scholarship Funding

Matthew Klein, Staff Writer

The IVCC Foundation’s annual Giving Day took place on April 3 and raised over $29,000 which supports their mission directly.

The Giving Day 3 event consisted of slime, relay races, raffles, free pizza from Pizza by Marchelloni in Peru, free popcorn by IVCC athletics and a choice of free water or Pepsi.

This was the first year that relay races were a part of the event, and they went over really well, according to Janice Corrigan, a coordinator of the event.

She said, “We just wanted a way for stu-dents and staff to come together and have fun.”

Teams raced to complete five tasks, and the winners from each heat competed in a final showdown.

The IVCC Chem Club made slime and got to slime the staff member who received the most votes.

Kyle Fogle, a part time IVCC employee, and Quintin Overrocker, Director of Ad-missions, Records and Transfer Services at IVCC, received the most votes and ended up covered in slime.

Fran Brolley, director of Community Re-lations and Development, could not be more pleased with how everything went.

Brolley stated, “Thanks to your support for events like Giving Day, our foundation is able to award nearly $30,000 to more than 250 students annually.”

Brolley and Corrigan are already think-ing about ideas for next year and are open to suggestions.
