A Formal Affair

Alas, after about 2 years of planning, CFS finally had its first formal dance! This event was open to all CFS students (and their dates) and gave everyone a chance to dress snazzy for one night. Initially, when I started planning for the formal as a sophomore, it was just going to be a social event for CFS Students. However, collecting many different ideas and opinions over the years turned the formal into a social event and a service event. The way we worked the service aspect into the event was by donating ALL the proceeds and donations of the event to Food Finders Food Bank. Altogether, a total of $960 and ~75 canned good donations were given to the food bank, which is located in Lafayette, Indiana. A representative from Food Finders was at the event and was incredibly touched to learn that so many students were interested in reaching out to the community. It must have been those warm, fuzzy feelings of family that inspired CFS Student Council members and CFS students to turn a social event into something that can benefit the community in which they live. It’s a great time to be a CFSer!

Proud to be a Boilermaker,
