College Students Making a Difference
In Union Town, New Jersey friends of Stephanie Mejias recently held two events to raise awareness and funds for the SADS Foundation. Stephanie passed away due to an undetected SADS condition last year and her friends have done so much in her memory. The first event was a girls night out in which Stephanie's fellow sorority sisters placed bids on dates with fraternity brothers.  The second event was a bowl-a-thon in which participants joined together for raffles on gift baskets and bowling!  Together, the two events raised over $4,500!  A special thanks to Laura Verniero for spearheading these two creative and successful events.
