8:00am at “Race for the Cure” met up with other Jersey Shore sisters Sharon, CherylAnn, Patty, Patty’s daughter Elizabeth (future ZTA hopefully), and Elizabeth’s friend (another future ZTA). Jersey Shore and all of the other ZTA alumnae and collegians present volunteered at the Survivor Lounge. We distributed pink hats and t-shirts, provided breakfast and drinks, handed out L’Oreal goody bags, greeted racers and walkers at the “in celebration of” and “in memory of” tables.
10:36am volunteering at RFTC was over. Actually it was over early, but I couldn’t stop talking to Theta Xi (Rutgers) about recruitment.
11:00am back at Jackson Outlets to drop off Joyce, Lynda, and Heather
11:30am confirmed that Theta Xi could spare one of their free parking passes for Think Pink w/the Giants later that afternoon, so I was off to Theta Xi
12:05pm at Theta Xi to pick up parking passes
12:30pm back home to do some quick Province President work
12:55pm off to pick up Heather and Lynda at the Cheesequake Rest Stop on the GS Parkway for lunch before heading to Giants Stadium
1:30pm lunch at the Peterpank Diner on Route 9 in South Amboy. No need to go back there. Should have eaten at Five Guys for lunch.
2:30pm headed to Giants Stadium with our free parking pass (thanks again Theta Xi!) for ZTA’s Think Pink distribution
3:30pm walk over to the ZTA meeting location for the Think Pink distribution. It was confirmed that Jersey Shore has tickets for the night’s game! Not only that, the tickets are for club seats ($500 each).
We did manage to sell 7 items @ $20 a piece (collegians did much better, some even went back to the ZTA meeting location for additional items). Besides peddling the pink items, we made friends with some of the tailgaters and collected their tab tops. REMINDER: the service project for Zeta Day is to collect tab tops for the Ronald McDonald house. There is a prize for the alumnae and collegiate chapters that collect the most (by weight)
After cutting my fingers on tab tops and breaking a nail, I had had enough.
7:05pm back at the ZTA meeting location turning in the money collected and the items we were not able to sell
7:40pm after showing our tickets to the Giants employee we were allowed into the club area – it was amazing: couches, ottomans, private Giants shop, carving stations, sushi, etc. Made our way to section 236, row 11 and had to again show our tickets to walk out the door to our seats. We were on the 25-30 yard line, nice cushioned seats, plenty of leg room – so nice.
