Would You Like Some Do-Goodness With Your Alcohol?


Though SPEC may only have official plans for Friday and Saturday, we all know this whole week is about Spring Fling. Which--who are we fooling?--really just means this week is about consuming copious amount of alcohol. But some of you might feel guilty taking that sixth shot of Absolut. Or maybe feel selfish for joining in the hedonism.

If only there were a way to satisfy both your thirst and your conscience.

Thanks to the BBB society and Beta Theta Pi, there are two ways: tomorrow (Tuesday) night the BBB society holds its annual fundraiser for autism research at Smoke's and Thursday night Beta is presenting Nappy Roots at Club Roxxy to benefit Fibrodisplaysia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) research.

Because nothing makes a drink taste sweeter than a good deed.

Interested? More details after the jump.

Fibrodsyplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP)

One of the most rare disabling genetic conditions known to mankind, FOP causes bone to form in muscles, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues. Bridges of extra bone develop across joints, progressively restricting movement and forming a second skeleton that imprisons the body in bone. There are no other known examples in medicine of one normal organ system turning into another.
