Breast cancer research festival hangs on ASUA vote

A second swing at funding for an April festival is up for debate at this week’s ASUA meeting, along with club and holiday clothing drive funding approval.

The Associated Students of the University of Arizona’s Wednesday meeting could approve $2,843.14 in funding toward campus activities.

A proposed ASUA arts and culture festival to aid breast cancer research, headed by Sen. Taylor Bilby and known as Tanzbödeli, has a resubmitted funding request of $900 for event advertising.

Senators in previous meetings expressed concerns with the funding part of the project without full knowledge of the projected budget. That itemized budget is on tap for the meeting tomorrow preceded by a presentation on the progress of the event, which now has committee chairs and a date of April 1.

A Holiday Clothing Drive funding request, by Sen. Deanna Mariner, of $32.99, also remains up for approval at the meeting.

Monday’s $1,910.15 consent agenda is also up for approval, bringing the year’s total funding to more than $41,700, if accepted.

The New Abolitionists Club, which advocates against global human trafficking, requested and received full funding for its request.   

S.M.O.R.E.S, a sophomore philanthropy honorary, requested to pay for club shirts, nabbing half of the money due to ASUA bylaws.

The College Republicans at the UA will be attending the Conservative Political Action Conference, the nation’s largest annual gathering of conservative activists, students and policy makers, from Feb. 10 to 12, 2011.

The Omega Delta Pre-Optometry Club, who works with Proyecto Visión, a nonprofit eye care group, requested money for shirts and was allocated the half due to bylaws.
