United Way Cupcake Challenge!

The Blue Wave Raiders are competing in the United Way Cupcake Challenge tomorrow. Here's the details of the contest:

On April 26th, which is next Tuesday, we will be having a cupcake bake off on the KUC Knoll from 11am- 1pm. We want to ask your organization to donate 3 dozen cupcakes of your choice to our cause! Each organization that donates will be represented, and students on MTSU's campus will pay $1 per cupcake to taste and try. In the end, the cupcakes will be judged by "celebrity judges" from Julia's Bakery and GiGi's cupcakes. The organization that wins will be mentioned, and hopefully be entered in our local newspaper. This is a great and easy way to support your community and join forces with your student body!
So head on over to the Knoll tomorrow and buy yourself a cupcake!! You'll be supporting the Masters Swim Club AND Rutherford County United Way!!
