AEMB Fundraising Dinner – April 06, 2014

Want to support Drexel AEMB while enjoying a delicious lunch or dinner? Simply enjoy a meal at Landmark Americana on April 6, 2014 and hand this flier to the waitstaff when paying. AEMB will then receive 30% of the non-alcohol revenue generated from your meal! In order for AEMB to receive this money, you must bring the flier with you. Thank you for your support!

Why do we need this money?
As a SAFAC-categorized Class III student organization, AEMB needs to raise 10% of our SAFAC fund allocation. We use SAFAC’s money to host educational events that resonant with our mission. By supporting us at this event, you are helping to make Drexel a premier educational institution.
