Speech Students Plan Several Fundraisers in May

May 8th, 2009

Hartnell students in the Speech 3 class are organizing several fundraisers for local charities. Please support their efforts. So far, here are your opportunities to show your compassion and caring for this community:

Chili’s dinner

On Monday, May 11, eat dinner at Chili’s and 10% of your bill will be donated to the Rape Crisis Center. All you have to do is show the fine folks at Chili’s your flyer showing that you are a charitable sort. “Panthers for Speech” members are distributing those flyers around campus or you can pick them up at the Admissions & Records Office. Show up hungry—it’s for a good cause! 

You must bring your flyer with you on May 11 to Chili’s at:
1940 N. Davis Road, Salinas
1349 Canyon Del Rey Blvd,, Seaside
