Several student organizations set up booths to sell tee-shirts, food, koozies, and a lot of Tiger gear. They were fundraisers for trips and donations to organizations around Hays.
The Social Work Club set up a booth with different foods to raise money for a trip to do services and social work for families around different communities. Sigma Chi also had food for sale, and that money was raised for the Huntsman Cancer Research. The Econ Club was selling signs and Tiger flasks for their yearly trip to Philadelphia.
The Criminal Justice Club raised money for the Hays Arc Park. The Accounting Club sold tee-shirts for their annual trip to different places around the country. The Interior Design Student Association sold koozies for their yearly trips as well. The IDSA sold out early Friday afternoon because of all the support they received.
