07 May University of Oklahoma Students Donate More than $17,000 to Camp Live-A-Dream!
The “Crimson & Cream Notes” IBC Team from OU’s Price College of Business presented Ally’s House with a check for $17,028.74 on Friday, May 6th at their final presentation. The group’s assignment was to come up with a product, market it and sell it with the proceeds going to a charitable organization. The group sold “Crimson and Cream Notes” which were OU-themed notepad sets and chose Ally’s House as their charity. They sold completely out of their product and raised more than any other group this year!
“Our company raised thousands and thousands of dollars for this camp, but the smile on the child’s face at the end of the day is absolutely priceless!” said Brad Roth, junior business major and VP of philanthropy.
The 17 students also donated more than a thousand service hours to Full Circle adult daycare in Norman. The initial startup loans were provided by First Fidelity Bank and the students spent 15 weeks going through a full marketing and sales campaign, culminating in their final presentation to faculty and students.
“We were completely overwhelmed with the size of this donation,” said Linda Webb, Executive Director of Ally’s House. “Camp Live-A-Dream very much needed these funds for the camp in June. This is such a blessing, and we couldn’t be more grateful!”
