Isabella Vitti ’09 wants YOU, graduating seniors, to join her in skipping the cap and gown for more fashionable attire, and donate the money to a Middletown charity:
Everyone knows that caps and gowns are stupid looking. But not everyone knows that you are not required to wear one at commencement. I’m not going to wear one, and I’m going to give my $27 to a Middletown organization (I haven’t decided on one yet but I’m considering Green Street or the Traverse Square after-school program, which is what the seniors last year donated to) that does good work in the community. If you’re interesting in doing this as well, please send me an email to ivitti(at)wes and we can talk about what organization would be best, and we can gather all the money together.
[Update by Mad] If you would like to donate directly to the Traverse Square after-school program, bring cash or a check to the Office of Community Service at the corner of Church and High and speak to the person at the front desk – they will get the money to the appropriate people.
