Senior Cocktails for Haiti?

The senior class officers have come up with a potential way of helping Haiti earthquake victims – cancel the Senior Cocktail scheduled for February, and donate the $15,000 that would’ve been used to organize it to relief efforts. From their email to the senior class:

We realize we cannot make a decision of this magnitude without your input, and have therefore created a survey to gauge the class response to this proposal. Although the money was collected for the specific purpose of senior cocktails, we are inspired by the impact that a donation of this size could have.

[…] Our decision will be determined by the majority vote. If we receive a favorable response to the proposal, we will send a follow-up survey to determine which organization we will send the donation to. If the class votes to make the donation, anyone who prefers to be reimbursed for the $20 from the senior pass for this event can anonymously do so.

Feel free to email us at seniorclass@wesleyan.edu with any feedback or suggestions.

Seniors, check your email for a link to the survey, where you can vote by Wednesday night (1/27).

I’m a little torn, myself. Get bused to a one-night boozefest next month, or passively help rebuild Haiti? Dilemma.

[Addendum, (1/27 4:30 pm): I value donating to worthy causes, especially when minimal personal effort will ostensibly benefit people in need. Being transported to a school-sponsored boozefest, while fun, is not something I value more highly than that. Hence the false dilemma I facetiously presented in the previous line.]

    alcoholism is unrelated to both the rebuilding of haiti and the proposal…also, choosing one over the other does not make you an alcoholic

    I support rebuilding Haiti and am not an alcoholic. So, yes, sarcasm (or online sarcasm fail).

    can’t tell — sarcasm or no?
