Phonathon Goals Set For 1989
by: Bergen Padgett
One of Meredith’s biggest
fundraisers. The Phonathon, will be
taking place October 1- 26. Stu
dents that sign up from each class
will participate by calling Meredith
alumnae and parents of current stu
Since Meredith students are
only responsible for 77 per cent of
their tuition, the other 23 per cent is
partially funded by The Phonathon.
Other money raised by The
Phonathon goes toward parlor re-
fumishments, ground keepings and
other things for the college. “Last
year they made $125,000 and I hope
that we can go over that this year,”
said Paula Puckett, Vice-President
of Annual Giving.
Each night a different class
will call with sixteen team mem
bers. The callers will receive dinner
and watch a video which explains
the procedure of the calls. Then
from 7 to 9 p.m. they will make the
calls. Prizes will be given out
throughout the night and one for the
top caller of the night.
As well as competing against
individuals, the classes also com
pete against each other. This year
the grand prize is two airline tickets
to anywhere in the continental United
States. The money totals for each
individual will be taken from their
best four nights and the highest will
win the tickets. There is also a
weekend at a beach or mountain
condominium as a prize.
“If anyone is interested, you
can contact your class president and
sign up with them,” said Puckett.
