Cupcakes for a Cause and African art fundraiser today

On Friday, Nov. 11, a scholarships fundraiser for students in SMU’s institutes in Africa will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the first floor hallway of Saint Mary Hall.

Purchase a cupcake for $1 (or 6 for $5) and be entered in a drawing to win a framed African batik. The drawing will occur at 2 p.m., and you don’t need to be present to win. The event will also include a sale of African batiks (three different sizes; some framed), textiles, and a few statues and carvings direct from Kenya. Have a snack, take home some treats for the weekend, and/or buy a gift. This event is co-sponsored by the First-Generation Initiative and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research.
