The Tuesday movie night at Chumash Auditorium will feature the film “40-Year-Old Virgin” and a blanket drop-off to benefit local homeless shelters.
Delta Sigma Pi, a co-ed business fraternity, sponsored the “Bring a Blanket, Leave a Blanket” event in conjunction with ASI movie night. Students are asked to bring a blanket with them to donate during the movie night. Students can also make cash donations at the event that the fraternity will use to buy additional blankets.
Donations from the event benefit the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter in San Luis Obispo. The shelter houses approximately 120 people per night. Additional blankets will be taken to the North County Overflow Homeless Shelter.
“It’s a movie that people want to see and then can contribute to the community,” said Delta Sigma Pi President Eric Hubbs. He added that the movie is one of the most popular and should bring many viewers.
Movie night is one of multiple community events involving Delta Sigma Pi. The fraternity also donates time to the Self Sufficiency Program at the San Luis Obispo Housing Authority.
Fraternity members spend two afternoons each week playing with children involved with the housing authority at a local park. The fraternity also plans to host a benefit golf tournament April 29, 2006 at Avila Beach Golf Resort for the housing authority.
The fraternity expects to donate the proceeds to an after-school program run by the housing authority.
