Students at Salisbury University to hold donor drive

The Salisbury University chapter of the American Marketing Association will hold their “AMA Saves Lives” event on Wednesday, November 16th at Brew River Restaurant. The event’s goal is to increase organ donor awareness and help fund the AMA’s 34th Annual Collegiate Conference.

Attendees will be educated about organ donation and will have the opportunity to sign up that evening to be an organ donor through AMA Saves Lives. The Collegiate American Marketing Association created AMA Saves Lives as the catalyst for increasing awareness through university chapters all over the nation. Collegiate chapters raise awareness through social media, events and videos. Every year the SU chapter of AMA participates in AMA Saves Lives.

All tips made from food and beverages will benefit SU AMA and will be used to send the student organization to their annual marketing conference in New Orleans during spring break.

There will be live entertainment from duo “Alex and Shiloh” at the event and attendees will be able to enter various raffles to win prizes from local businesses. Attendees wearing red in honor of organ donation will receive a free raffle ticket. Courtney Brooke’s Salon in Snow Hill will be selling red hair tinsel.

“AMA Saves Lives” is open to the community and will be held on Wednesday, November 16th starting at 7 p.m. at Brew River Restaurant located at the port of Salisbury.
