Details
I plan on purchasing 200 tickets from Hershey Park to sell to the students. This year will be the 6th year doing this successful event (previously hosted by Matthew Sutton). SAF covers roughly half of the ticket price while the students pay the other half. There is no profit made. This allows students to be able to purchase 1 ticket per student ID for roughly 73.66% off of the regular ticket price.
In addition to last year we will be selling tickets for the evening class student again. (those who aren't on campus during the normal hours).

To acquire the full amount of funds needed to afford the grand total, I plan to work with LeighAnn Myers (Admissions Rep, Lion Ambassador Adviser). I will also work with Sue Ruch (Bursar) to acquire the needed funds ahead of time to be able to facilitate this proposal.

Itemized Matching Funds
3,000.00 (which is covered by the students)
Open to all Campus?
Like years in the past, we will post flyers and signs on all of our building proposing the time I will be selling tickets, which will be during the common hour and then 5 - 6 pm. Also I will send a couple emails and SMS to all students informing them of this opportunity. I will sell tickets during the lunch hour and in the evening 5 days a week until all tickets are sold (approx. 1-3 weeks).
# of Students Benefit
If each student purchases a (1) ticket (the max allowed) this allows 200 students to be impacted.
Enhance PSY
This proposal could increase the morale on campus and given the past years when we sold 2 tickets per student we will now sell 1 ticket per student giving other students a chance to purchase tickets, just as what was done last year.
This will also give the students an opportunity to partake in a school activity, that is not on a scheduled date. For example, Trips to New York are on specific dates and some student may not be able to attend. But when they purchase the tickets they can go to Hershey Park anytime between May and September. This is also something that all students can take joy into; traditional and nontraditional students.
Desired Outcomes
As mention above, students will be able to purchase the maximum amount of one ticket WITH their Penn State York ID. This year, I will not only be selling tickets during the common hour but in the evening as well, in hopes to attract the night crowd.
The students will be able to use their ticket for the regular season at Hershey Park, which is May 1st - September 27th 2014. That gives them the opportunity to go as they please.
Comments
With the cooperation with Matt Sutton, this event for the past couple years has been a great success and was very beneficial to hundreds of Penn State York students.
I also think that this an excellent use of SAF funds and proves to students that these funds are used to benefit them.

Lastly, I would like to be present during this meeting to answer any additional questions, seeing as this proposal can be complicated.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this proposal and allowing me to still have a hand in making this campus a better place.

Members present: Why, Bos, Georgokopoulos, Fritz, Baumgartner, Lewis, Brown, Royer, Bartell

Comments and questions: Tabled pending further information.
There was no representative available and the committee had questions. In particular, the committee would like to see sales statistics from last year, and the committee would also like the Lion Ambassadors to consider other ways to handle the sale, such as taking pre-orders to avoid having to sell more than 1 ticket per student.

Details
The purpose of the trip and the reimbursement of funds of up to $500 per student would be to immerse students in the culture of the south and also to immerse students in a area of the country that needs volunteer and service help year-round. The students would learn about a different culture, do valuable service work in a different part of the country, and learn to not take for granted many of the things that they have in their lives that others do not.

Fundraisers would be arranged throughout the year to offset the cost of transportation, lodging, and food so as to reimburse students as little as possible out of the SAF funds .
Itemized Request
The requested monies would go towards a reimbursement for students of no more than $500 each and up to 10 students for attending the Alternative Spring Break trip, potentially traveling to New Orleans, LA.
Itemized Matching Funds

Open to all Campus?
All students are welcome to sign-up for this trip and will become open for student sign-ups once the Fall semester begins. Flyers will be created and placed across campus, an ad will be put into the Stall Seat Journal, part of the weekly email of campus updates, hand bills, through the trip fundraising events, and social media.
# of Students Benefit
Approximately 10 students in theory.
Enhance PSY
The entire purpose of this trip is for service learning...to show students another side of the way people live and to offer them just a small token of help in their time of need. The trip will also be potentially linked with other Penn State campuses which would only further drive Penn State's name and image in the community but in the community of a different part in the United States. Community Service is important for all students to experience and this trip is sort of the culminating service trip that Penn State York could offer to our students.
Desired Outcomes
As a result, students will be able to show an appreciation for what they have in their daily lives, the satisfaction of doing good, hard, volunteer work in the community, working together as one big Penn State group, and has the potential to grow to other smaller trips to local communities/bordering states if this program does serve to be successful.

Enhance PSY
Supporting the birthday of Ava is about showing her that her friends here at Penn State York care about her and are proud of everything she has been through in her fight against cancer. This is a great opportunity for students on campus to meet and incredible and inspirational little girl.
Desired Outcomes
After this event we are hoping students who attend will have a connection with one of our THON families. Also, we hope that students will understand the importance and significance of what THON does and stands for. It will help students to be a part of something that is bigger than themselves and make the difference in the life of a child.
