SFB allocated $233.50 to ASA for its Wearable Art Workshop.

“I like it a lot and I think it’s cool,” programming director Brian Green said. “(ASA’s president Sophie Kay) always does a good job with all of her events,” Green said.

The event will allow students to paint tote bags and T-shirts and is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, April 30, at 12 p.m. in AIMM 125.

It was also allocated $100 to pay for the fee to use the wall oustide of the Brower Student Center for its previously funded event, Street Art Workshop, on May 5.

Following, Water Watch also presented to SFB for its Earth Week events that will take place during the week of Monday, April 21, and will be co-hosted by the Bonner Center.

“I think it’s a great week-long event and really advocates for what they want to acheive,” assistant Student Government representative Hajar Lakhouili said.

The week will have different themed days every week that are planned to include Monday’s “flower sale,” Tuesday’s Earth Day, Wednesday’s “Water Day,” Thursday’s “Green-Consumption Day” and Friday’s “Clean Up Day.”

The board was unanimous in its decision to fully fund the request for $120 to fund a reusable bag giveaway, water bottles for a water taste test, organic chocolate strawberries for “Green-Consumption Day” and a banner for advertising.

The event will be co-sponsored by Student Chemists’ Association, Alpha Kappa Delta, Beta Beta Beta, Alpha Phi Omega and Sigma Kappa.

*Even though SFB agrees to finance certain events, there is no guarantee these events will take place. The approval only makes the funds available.
