On August 23rd, Beta Zeta Nu helped the Library Foundation of Redwood City raise money at the North Fair Oaks Festival in Redwood City. The money was intended to help the Library Foundation purchase materials for Redwood City libraries, which would benefit the community at large. We gathered volunteers from the chapter (Aldo Garcia, Violeta Crow and Rene Rivera) and sold raffle tickets to passers-by at our booth in the festival. The foundation was raffling attractive prizes, such as an iPod, soccer ball, tickets for a Giants game and more. The event was fun for the chapter as well as the community and we were able to raise about $400 for a noble cause. We were also able to represent students of Cañada College and Phi Theta Kappa.
