The Rogue Social Club kicked off the fall semester with its first fundraiser car wash on Aug. 29 at the local AutoZone in Columbus.
Social clubs are a great opportunity to get involved and make lasting friendships, but the fees can be very expensive. The main purpose of this particular fundraiser was to raise funds for new and existing members, so they will not have to pay out so much of their own money during the semester.
"We want to have funds so that we can provide our pledges with whatever they need," said Audra Polk, club president.
The funds raised in the car wash will help the club with finances and assist the pledges so they can spend less money on required items.
"We decided to do a car wash because it is a great opportunity to raise money and get the campus and the community involved," said Antonneisha Jones, the club's fundraiser champion.
The club's ultimate goal was to wash 25 cars. The club washed 23 cars and achieved the rest of its goal with the help of donations.
"Our purpose is to create and promote friendship, and to help the community," said Kimberly Baucom, club vice president.
