Is our children speling?

Two words for the University of Nebraska at Omaha's student paper: SPELCHECK!

Fraternaties (sic) host date auction for charitable cause

Charley Reed

Eating dinner with stranger you paid for a Valentine's date may not be the most traditional plan, but the members of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Pi Kappa Alpha are hoping UNO students will think outside the box and from within their hearts this year.

On Feb. 11 the two fraternities will be putting aside their friendly rivalry to put on a date auction to help support the Omaha Ronald McDonald House.

The auction, which will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom, will feature 12 male students on display and up for bid. All proceeds from the event will go to the charity, which houses families who can't afford to pay for hotel stays while their children receive medical care in Omaha.

Organizers Mike Gladson, a member of Pi Kappa Alpha, and Nick Buda, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, are happy with the choice of the charity.

It actually sounds like a pretty good event. Too bad nobody wil read past the headline.
