Pfeiffer Dry Night
The Student Athletic Advisory Committee at Pfeiffer University will sponsor its second annual Dry Night beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 20.
Dry Night is held to promote an evening of substance-free activities and raises awareness about the negative impact of underage drinking and alcohol abuse, while benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Dry Night also demonstrates Pfeiffer’s commitment to community outreach and longstanding mission of service. Activities will include video game tournaments, pie eating contests, dodge ball, a Mr. Pfeiffer University pageant, food and more.
The event will be from 6 p.m. until 1 a.m. in Merner Gym on the campus. Cost is $5 in advance and $7 the night of the event. All proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish, an organization that has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.
“The college years represent a period for high risk drinking behaviors and one of the great things about Pfeiffer is the commitment of our students to shape the campus culture into one that is a source of pride,” said Daryl Bruner, MA, LPC, NCC, director of counseling services at Pfeiffer.
“Dry Night is a great example of our students’ awareness of this national trend, and then responding locally to bring about a positive change by helping each other make responsible choices. It is really exciting to see our student-athletes taking the lead for this event.”
