The Associated Student Body Clubs and Events Board will be hosting its third Club Day of the semester on Nov. 20.
The event will be hosted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the liberal arts breezeway if it is raining that day and in the student center quad if it is not. It will feature a Harvest Hoedown theme and proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The last Club Day, held on Oct. 30, featured a “Geeks and Goths” theme and was designed to promote an anti-bullying message.
According to CAEB, the Harvest Hoedown theme was chosen as a way to make it easy for people to participate in the event, and also to make it easy for people to get behind the theme.
The upcoming Club Day will allow clubs the opportunity to advertise themselves to interested students and increase membership.
“(Club day is) an opportunity for clubs to come out and showcase what they can give students,” said LeslieAnn Dameron, the director of activities for CAEB, adding that club day will be a nice opportunity for outreach.
The event will feature a fashion contest, a line dancing competition, and games in which students can earn prizes. Other events scheduled for Club Day include best barnyard animal, hottest hillbilly, and cutest cowboy or cowgirl, according to a flyer distributed by CAEB.
Jorge Riley, a Republican Club representative with CAEB, said that he “will talk to” his fellow Republican Club members about entering the line dancing competition.
“I for one don’t endorse country music. It sounds like somebody kicked a dog and recorded the sound,” said Riley.
All of the proceeds that the Club Day earns will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization that provides programs and services to injured military veterans.
Every November, CAEB uses November’s club day to donate to various the proceeds they earn to non-profit organizations.
Last year, CAEB donated to the Sol Collective, an arts education center in Sacramento.
CAEB says it expects between thirty to thirty five clubs to take part in the event on Thursday, and that it can help students feel more connected to the community.
“It always feels nice to be a part of something,” said Dameron. “Whether it’s athletics or theatre … I feel like there’s a club for everyone.”
