Tri-Beta Sings, Raises money for Local Charity
On Friday April 15th the biology honorary, Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta), held its 5th Annual Karaoke Fundraiser to benefit the Potsdam Humane Society (PHS). Students, faculty and staff from all areas of the university gathered at Pub 56 to put their vocal prowess and unlimited goofiness on display for a great cause. In the process, they collectively raised $270 for the local charity.
The PHS was founded in 1957 and provides refuge for sick and abandoned animals throughout the area. Their recent capital campaign raised $1,000,000 to fund an expansion of the current animal shelter. Ground was broken in November and the renovations are currently underway. The money raised by Tri-Beta will help PHS continue to provide its programs and services to the local community.
