MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - The Wesleyan Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted a dodgeball tournament to benefit the Community Foundation of Middlesex County’s Anti-Bullying Campaign on April 26. The funds raised were used to help defray the costs of local schools traveling to the Ivoryton Playhouse to see an anti-bullying play called “The Bully”. Pledge posters were also signed by all of the participants to show support for the Wesleyan SAAC pledge towards anti-bullying, which is listed below.
Wesleyan student-athletes were given the option to attend one of the play’s performances in thanks for raising the funds. The Cardinals chose to attend the performance on Friday, May 1, so they could watch the play with their adopted elementary school, the Macdonough School. Wesleyan SAAC was also thanked by Thayer Talbott, Senior Director for Programs and Operations for the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, for its fundraising efforts.
