ATL United: Student Engagement supports charger food pantry

Recently, Student Engagement announced a special event for this semester: GHC night at the New England Revolution vs. Atlanta United FC soccer match, scheduled for Sat., Mar. 9, at 7:30 p.m. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

“In the past, we have offered students chances to go to the Atlanta Braves and the Atlanta Falcons. Because of the success of these events, we wanted to offer even more for our students,” Assistant Coordinator of Student Engagement Madison Signoret said. “This semester, we wanted to increase the diversity of sporting events by adding a different sport – soccer.”

Fifty free tickets for the event, limited to two per student, were available through Student Engagement. The giveaway was a raffle to ensure fairness in light of almost four hundred students’ substantial interest.

“All students had to do was fill out a form to be entered in. The form was sent out, as well as posted throughout campus, Snapchat and Instagram,” Signoret said.

The raffle winners received notification of their selection on Feb. 21. Each ticket won includes a $10 food voucher redeemable at any dining spot within Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Speaking of food, the Charger Food Pantry will receive a contribution of $5 from each discounted ticket sale.

The Charger Food Pantry doubles as a closet for students who may need career clothing among other reasons. There are locations for them on all campuses.

Interested students, staff, faculty, alumni, family and friends can purchase discounted tickets for the Atlanta United game until Mar. 7, with exclusive pricing starting at $25 here. Those interested in buying ten or more tickets should contact Ryan O’Conner at (470) 341-3486 for more information.

In a continued effort to give back, future GHC night sporting events will also aim to fundraise for the Charger Food Pantry.

“Students are able to enjoy a nice night out and also help their Charger community,” Signoret said.
