This past Tuesday was a night to remember for nearly 1300 UGA students and Athens residents as the 8th Annual Classic City Crawl took place. Each year the Crawl becomes bigger and better, and this year's had the largest number of attendees yet. 20 Athens establishments participated, ranging from restaurants, bars, and even a hair salon. PSE partnered with the UGA Wishmakers to have the Crawl benefit the Make a Wish Foundation.
Gamma spent weeks preparing for the Crawl, and the hard work paid off. Nearly 1300 shirts were sold through street selling, promotion on social media, word-of-mouth, and relentless dedication.
By purchasing a Classic City Crawl t-shirt, 'crawlers' enjoyed deals and discounts throughout the entire day. You could start your day with 10% off breakfast at Waffle House, Tame for a mid-afternoon blowout, a spicy lunch at Wingzone, 20% off a new outfit from J.Crew, 25% off food from Brixx, and then a variety of deals from Athens best late night spots like Flanagans, Silver Dollar, Boarshead, and Allgood.
Gamma was especially excited to partner with the UGA Wishmakers to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Make a Wish Foundation. The Make a Wish Foundation grants 'wishes' to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions. This year, the UGA Wishmakers made it their goal to donate enough money to award 400 wishes in the 2016 fiscal year. PSE was able to raise nearly $7k to contribute to the Wishmakers' cause.
