Albertson College Groups Hold Gala for Toys for Tots

2005. 12. 01.

CALDWELL (Idaho) Two Albertson College of Idaho student groups are reaching out to those in need this Christmas.

The Delta Tau Delta Fraternity and the CofI Swing Dance Club are hosting the 6th Annual Winter Charity Ball on Saturday, December 10. The event benefits the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation, and rather than selling tickets, the Swing Dance Club and the Delts ask that those CofI students, faculty, staff, and alumni attending bring an unwrapped toy or a cash donation for admittance into the event.

While members of the Albertson College community get dressed up and enjoy dancing, hors d'oeuvres from Berryhill and Co., and live jazz music from the CofI jazz band and the CofI vocal jazz ensemble, they will also be making Christmas a little bit brighter for the children of the Treasure Valley.

The student-run events of the CofI Swing Dance Club serve all CofI students and benefit the campus community as a whole by regularly providing a healthy and safe social environment which promotes and heightens appreciation for music and for the performing arts.

The Theta Psi Chapter of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity has served the Treasure Valley and Albertson College community for over 7 years and continues to bring recognition to CofI through its philanthropic endeavors, academic achievements, and commitment to 'lives of excellence.'
