Alpha Gamma Delta’s Oodles of Noodles

5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 17

Alpha Gamma Delta, 2118 Sunset Drive

Participants pay $5 to get all-you-can-eat noodles, garlic bread and drinks. Choose from different kinds of noodles, as well as meat, alfredo or marinara sauce.

“We raise money for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, who in turn gives money to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation,” said Bridget Halbur, sophomore in agriculture studies. 

“It’s fun because you get to see the greek community come together to help support a great cause,” Halbur said. 

Alpha Chi Omega’s Cupcakes and Carnations

Alpha Chi Omega, 301 Lynn Ave.

Order cupcakes or carnations for that special someone, or just a friend. Choose from red, pink or white carnations. Cupcakes can be vanilla or chocolate.

Carnations are $1.50, or buy five and get one free. Cupcakes are $2 each or three for $5. Alpha Chi Omega shirts can be ordered for $12. Place orders at Alpha Chi Omega or contact Elizabeth Engelen at [email protected]. Payments and orders need to be placed by Monday. Carnations and cupcakes will be delivered Feb. 14.

“If the recipient is greek, we deliver it to their greek house. If the recipient doesn’t live in a greek house, we will deliver the orders to whoever made the purchase,” said Engelen, junior in animal science.

All proceeds go to ACCESS Women’s Shelter.

“Alpha Chi and ACCESS have had a great relationship and we want to keep doing everything we can to raise money for them,” Engelen said.

“Students can also place orders online through Facebook,” said Mayra Jaime, senior in elementary education and secretary of Lambda Theta Nu.
