There are 38 days until World Cup 7... 38. Days. Woah.
This past month, the Tufflepuffs have been fervently fundraising to get to the World Cup 7 in Myrtle Beach in Florida, where we hope to represent the Blue and Brown to our best ability.
The first fundraising effort we started is the "Donate" page on our brand new website (which you must know about since this blog is on it). Some of the fun rewards you can get for donating include a date with a tufflepuff, a thank you note from the team, or even your favorite Disney song sung by the Tufflepuffs. This Friday, we plan on filling some of the rewards already claimed by taking our official team picture and by signing Hakunah Matata! Through this method we've raised over 1000$ and are super thankful for everyone who has contributed thus far.
Additionally, on February 22nd, the Tufflepuffs delivered grilled cheese on the Tufts campus and to the nearby area. Say (Grilled) Cheese was a huge success, with the Tufflepuffs filling over 75 orders and making over 100 sandwiches! Here are some of the night's highlights:
- Freshman Breandan ran up and down the hill over 10 times thanks to his loving hallmates
- Captain Matt finally tasted pesto when he tried his name sake - the Cardarelli. He loves it and can't wait until next time so he can order some for himself
- Cooks Jordan and Arlene kept things moving smoothly while dancing to Jackson 5 and Disney songs (and Arlene only burnt herself once)
-Freshman Alan learned he has the power to sell when he went to Miller with 2 grilled cheeses and came back with orders for 7 others!
We plan to have another one of these fundraisers within the next few weekends - so if you're sad you missed out, keep an eye out on our facebook page for more information.
