SG notes: Casino week budget set

Nicholas Durdan, Staff Writer

This evening on a relaxed schedule, Wilkes University Student Government tackled Casino Week budget.

Treasurer Anthony Fanucci took the multiple prize suggestions into account from the previous meeting and was able to get multiple deals on many of the prizes, including cheaper sound speakers in order to lighten the proposed budget.

The new prizes for Casino Week this year include many different bundles, sound speakers, Chromecast TV, a personal printer, and more.

A surprise revealed that a prize of eight day passes to Montage Mountain ski resort, and two season passes are included at no extra charge. The price would have been worth $1,500.

Student Government is considering these as potential door prizes.

The new budget is set at $11,989, which passed with a vote of 35-0-8.

The budget for Student Government is as follows: all college: $13,245.36, conference: $2,500, spirit: $505.39, general: $6,017.32, giving Student Government a total of: $22,268. 07.

Student Government meets 6 p.m. Every Wednesday in the Miller Room inside the Henry Student Center.
