First D.R. Fundraising Venture

One of the unique experiences of the SMBA is that the International Business class takes place over a 10-day period in the Dominican Republic. More specifically, the program works with the San Diego Padres top-notch Dominican Republic school to empower the surrounding community through sports and the ideas generated from the SMBA class.

SMBA '11 will be traveling to the D.R. in late June, but there are a number of things we need to accomplish before then. The first being fundraising for the trip and raising money for the D.R. community.

Tonight, our first fundraising opportunity was held at Effin's. We raised a little more than $90 thanks to the support from the Effin's staff. However, we expect to raise more as the weeks progress, especially since we now have a website to aid our efforts (courtesy of Rebecca Cathcart, SMBA '11):

If you have any suggestions on Fundraising ideas or would like to help out, feel free to comment.
