For the first time ever, UCF’s Rosen College of Hospitality Management has formed an official team to support Knight-Thon, UCF’s largest, student-run philanthropy. The mission of Knight-Thon is to educate, inspire, and unite the campus and community to provide ongoing support for Greater Orlando Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Student teams raise money year round through fundraising and on March 28 at the CFE Arena, students will stand for 20 hours to celebrate their efforts and unite for the cause.
To create awareness and encourage support, the Rosen College Miracle Makers hosted “For The Kids” (FTK) Day at Rosen College on Monday, Feb. 2. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., students enjoyed free food, games, music and raffle prizes. Students donated to Knight-Thon and signed the “50 Days ‘Til Knight-Thon” banner to show their support for Rosen College’s first Knight-Thon team.
Over 150 students interacted with the Rosen College Miracle Maker team captains and volunteers. Their goals are to have at least 25 students on the team and raise $10,000 by March 28.
