Cash for a Bash
On Tuesday, Sept. 25, WGUR The Noise gave students an opportunity to release those pent-up frustrations with their “Cash for a Bash” event. Students were able to pay $1 for the chance to take a sledgehammer to a previously wrecked car. For the small fee, students were allowed unlimited hits to the junker. “This felt great! I wanted to get my money’s worth out of it too, so I decided to take off the bumper,” Chris Harkins, sophomore biology major, said. WGUR raised $52 during their stress-relieving event, surpassing last years total by $2. Paul Ogletree, general manager of WGUR and senior mass communication major, said the profits from this event will go toward promotional efforts to spread the word about WGUR’s new name, The Noise.“This is a good stress reliever and feels refreshing. I just pictured something in my head and took my aggressions from that out onto the car,” Kelsey Lee, senior mass communication major, said.
