A whirlwind 24 hours

Right now, in dorm rooms, apartments, homes, and Fishbowls across campus, Shmoozim are recovering from a wildly successful day's worth of fundraising, community-building, bonding, eating, not sleeping, and shivering. Thanks again to all involved in this year's Relay effort, those who came to support us, and those who came to share some wonderful Passover-friendly desserts with us.

As of 10:00 this morning the University of Michigan's Relay for Life event managed to raise a record-breaking $224,500+ with more money yet to be counted. This beats last year's total of $138,000 by a mile (or four laps around Palmer Field).

At the time of writing, our own Team Shmooze has raised over $2,900, putting us well within the top 20 of 150+ teams involved. The online donation page is still open for those of you who want to do some last-minute raising of funds and help send that total even higher. Relay was a real success for Shmooze and the University, and we look forward to being involved in years to come.

Please stay tuned (is that saying no longer appropriate in the age of the 'net?) for an extensive recap of our participation in this year's Relay for Life as well as the first annual Erasing Stereotypes: Passover Dessert Competition.There'll be pictures, recipes, and commentary aplenty.
