Food will be served beginning at 7 p.m., and the fire will be lit soon after. This event is sponsored by the Student Events Board (seb), and open to all!
At 10:00pm on Friday and 11:00pm on Saturday join the Retriever Dance Marathon in the UC Ballroom. RDM works with the Be Positive (B+) Foundation to help families with kids that are battling cancer through financial needs. Each year they host their annual dance marathon at UMBC to celebrate the culmination of the donations they have received and the funds they have raised throughout the past year. Through the night, they ask the campus community to join them in dancing For The Kids to help support children with cancer and their families. https://my.umbc.edu/groups/osl/events/53460.
