Dear Local Organization:
Drury University is hosting Soak Up Springfield, an event that will introduce over 350 incoming first-year students as well as returning students, faculty, and staff to various businesses and non-profits in the Springfield area and will be held outside of the Findlay Student Center around the FSC Circle. Drury has a student body of over 1,500 students, and we would like your business or organization to advertise what you have to offer hundreds of youth, many of which are brand new to the area. All money raised from this event goes to support leadership development programming at Drury University and community outreach efforts.
