8:50 a.m., Nov. 11, 2010----The University of Delaware Student Government Association (SGA) will host a special event, ONE: United to Make Poverty History, from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19, in the Multipurpose Rooms of the Trabant University Center.
This event supports the ONE campaign, a grassroots organization that works to eradicate extreme poverty and preventable disease in Africa and oppressed states around the world.
Those attending the event are asked to wear black and white, fashionable attire. There will be a best-dressed contest and prizes will be awarded to winners as selected by representatives of UDress.
Raffles will also take place throughout the night and all attendees are eligible to win prizes.
Performers will include One Man Band Jeremy Norris, Heartbeatz, Vocal Point, Dark Arts, Riot Act, and Delaware Kammal.
Pearl Shah and Kahlid Bilal will emcee the event and DJ Amaze will be providing musical entertainment.
Refreshments and mocktails will be served free of charge.
There will be no entrance fee for this event, but SGA is accepting donations throughout the evening. Money donated will go to support the programs of Plan USA, one of the 10 leading antipoverty groups that have joined together to create ONE. These programs combat many world issues, including child trafficking, disaster relief, and HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.
SGA also invites the community to visit the ONE campaign kiosks in Trabant throughout the week of Nov. 15 to make donations to Plan USA or learn more about the mission of the organization.
SGA is able to host this event thanks to the generous event contributions made by RSA, Haven, and SCPAB.
