The Spanish Language Association today will host its first fundraiser during the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences club fair.
Students who stop by the CLASS building during U-Hour can become members and purchase some caramel apples.
SLA promotes, celebrates and values the Spanish language through campus festivals, community service and scholarships.
Students who are involved with the club have the opportunity to explore different Latin American countries and cultures.
Vice President and Event Scheduler Diana Santiago hopes students come to support SLA because she wants the club to be successful.
Santiago expects that the fundraiser will promote the club, encourage diversity and spread the beauty of the Spanish language at Cal Poly Pomona.
“The most exciting thing about our fundraiser is getting to meet new people and getting our club out there,” Santiago said. “That way more people get to know us, which will help us plan more events throughout the year.”
For SLA President Sandra Silva, she hopes the fundraiser meets her expectations because it is the first one she is organizing.
“This one is different from the other ones in the past because we mainly sold aguas frescas and other things,” Silva said. “This time, we will be selling something new, and it goes with the Halloween theme.”
Funds raised will support future events, including “Noche De Cultura,” which is hosted to attract more students.
Fundraiser Chair Cynthia Phipps-Sanchez encourages students to become members because it provides a great environment for all students to establish new friendships.
“SLA is important because it is a place where everyone has something in common,” Phipps-Sanchez said. “It helps students feel like they belong.”
The club will also be selling Hot Cheetos with cheese at the Dia de los Muertos event on Friday Nov. 3.
