SGA allocates nearly $14,000 for fashion show

By Mark Wadland


At Tuesday’s SGA meeting, Greg Arpante, president of the Fashion Club, requested and received $13,912 to fund the club’s Luminescence Fashion Show.


He said the show, which will take place on April 25 at 7 p.m., is a good way to build the careers of those in the club.


“The fashion show is a continual display of students’ work in front of teachers and possible employers, and it’s very important to represent our school year,” said Arpante.


Of the funds requested, $9,680 will cover the cost of staging and lighting equipment. Another $1,173 will pay for 150 T-shirts to promote the event. In addition, $24 will pay for posters to advertise the show, $350 for a photographer, $400 for programs, $500 to rent chairs for attendants (made up of students, faculty, family and friends of those involved in the show) and $85 for a new iron.


Additionally, $1,000 (up from $100 last year) will be used to pay for a DJ, whom Arpante hopes will stimulate creativity and tailor his musical selections to the needs of the designers.


Timothy Liddell, president of the Ultimate Frisbee Club, asked for $440 to pay for a disc golf trip to Devens, Mass. on April 19. He said the trip will be relaxing for club members and a good way for them to get to know one another, as well as to get exercise.


The cost of the trip was broken down as follows: $360 for the cost of transportation to the club’s destination and $80 for 12 Frisbees, which the club will keep to use. Liddell said there are roughly 20-25 people currently in the club.


Francis Rick, the co-president of Psi Chi, requested and received $471 to buy the movie rights to screen Disney’s “Frozen” on campus.


President of the Dance Team Lisa Donovan requested $400 to pay for 500 programs for the team’s dance show, which will take place on May 1 and 3.


“We’re asking for more than last semester because we have more pages that we need,” Donovan said.
