Dine with Us Fundraiser
Jun 5 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Our Chapter is hosting our annual fundraiser event at Houlihan’s on Wed, June 5th. Houlihan’s is located at 645 Route 46 in Fairfield, NJ, 07004. The event will take place from 5PM-9PM. A portion from each sale will directly benefit our Chapter, which provides 5 Scholarships for local incoming freshmen in the area, donates thousands of dollars to THON-Dance Marathon, and also helps support local organizations.


The way this fundraiser works is that all you need to do is dine in or take out with Houlihan’s in Fairfield on the above date and time. Then present the below flyer to your server and/or hostess and Houlihan’s will total all the final bills from people that present the flyer. They will take 10% from that total and donate it back to our Chapter.  We only receive credit if the flyer is physically brought into the restaurant.  Please spread to your friends, family, co-workers.


In order to ensure that the restaurant has ample coverage, they are requesting us to take RSVPS. All we need is a name and how many in your party. RSVPs can be sent to pennstatenj@gmail.com. If you didn’t RSVP, you’re still welcome to attend. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at pennstatenj@gmail.com.
