Tickets remain for the Viennese Ball on Friday, April 11, in Davies Center. Saturday's event is sold out. Tickets are available at the Service Center counter in the east lobby of Davies Center, and may be ordered by phone (715-836-3727 or toll-free 800-949-8932) and online. The Viennese Ball is presented in duplicate each evening and is a much-anticipated fundraiser for music, service and international study scholarships for UW-Eau Claire students.
UW-Eau Claire students exceeded their goal and raised $2,019.24 for Feed My People, the only food bank in west central Wisconsin, through the Blugold Dining program's Soup + Bread Night initiative February 26. Students selected soups, breads and beverages to replace the usual evening and late-night meals at Riverview Cafe in Hilltop Center. The event was attended by 1,798 people, who were served by volunteers from a number of student organizations and members of the Blugold Dining committee. The proceeds to be given to Feed My People will consist of a donation from Blugold Dining as the savings in labor and food costs, as well as cash donations collected during the event.
Random Acts of Kindness Week provides UW-Eau Claire students with five days dedicated to participating in activities that challenge them to be kind to everyone around them — friend or stranger. This marks the first year that the campus is taking part in Random Acts of Kindness Week and we are celebrating by providing various opportunities for students to both engage in and generate their own random acts of kindness. Activities take place Monday–Friday, March 3–7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in or near Davies Center.
