Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s Give Back Night at On The Border

Ross Weiner

On Jan. 30, Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity hosted a fundraiser at the restaurant On the Border, located at the Christmas Tree shopping center in Orange, Conn. This event was a big success for SAE. Many Greek organizations at the University of New Haven do fundraising events at restaurants to raise money for their chapter. What made this event different was that On the Border was right next to a UNH shuttle stop, making it easily accessible for UNH students who may not have cars.

Stephen LaLuna, a brother of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and organizer of the fundraiser, said, “The On the Border give back night was a complete success! Due to the help of those who participated, the Brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon will get a check for $395. I would like to personally thank everyone for coming and supporting SAE. We had an amazing showing of people and we would not have been able to achieve our goal if it wasn’t for everyone’s help.” LaLuna was pretty happy on how the event turned out.

Student Jacqueline Botchman was one of the many guests at the event. “Sigma Alpha Epsilon likes to bring together people from UNH,” she said. SAE indeed brought all types of students together at On the Border to enjoy some great Mexican food. Whether one was Greek or not, a range of UNH students came out to support the brothers of SAE; everyone only had good things to say about the event. It was an excellent example of a Greek organization bringing the campus community together for a night of fun around the dinner table with a few close friends.

Brother Kenny Hall summed the experience up perfectly, stating “It’s a fundraising event to slam good food and drinks.”
