Mount Union Chemistry Students Holding Raffle to Benefit Alison Draves Fund

April 13, 2010

The Mount Union College Student Affiliate Chapter of the American Chemistry Society is holding a raffle to benefit the Alison Draves Performing Arts Fund this Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20 in the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

The Alison Draves Fund was established in 2007 to honor the memory of Alison, a sophomore at Alliance High School who died tragically in September. Dr. Jeffrey Draves, professor of chemistry and Dr. Patricia Draves, professor of chemistry and vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College are the parents of Alison. The chemistry students at Mount Union chose this raffle as a way to reach out to the Draves family and show their support by raising money for the fund established in her memory.

Tony Brewer, a senior biochemistry major of Painesville, is responsible for organizing the effort. Brewer and other members of the chapter solicited donations from area businesses.

Three tickets will be sold for $1. Tickets will be available and the prizes will be on display in the Hoover-Price Campus Center during lunch and dinner on Friday and during the Community Brunch on Saturday prior to the Purple Raiders Homecoming football game against Baldwin-Wallace. Prizes include gift cards, apparel, autographed sports items and gift baskets. Tickets can be used to bid on items of the purchaser's choice.
