BSG raffles two premier parking passes

Hoping to foster better relations among members of the Bowdoin community, Bowdoin Student Government has announced "Platinum Parking," which will entail the raffle of one or two universal parking passes per semester.

"It's going to be a great thing to have between the administration and student government," said BSG president Jason Hafler '04.

Student, faculty, and staff will be able to enter the raffle for the passes, which will permit the winner to park in any spot on Bowdoin campus, except those designated for handicapped parking. BSG is looking to have the passes accepted this week and only waits for the go-ahead from Facilities.

In addition to being a free get-out-of-jail card for a couple of lucky people, the passes will also serve to raise money through their raffle. The funds raised will be donated to a worthy cause or causes in the Brunswick community. The recipient of the non-profit raffle funds will be chosen by a BSG-appointed steering committee.

The "Platinum Parking" raffle illustrates the BSG's commitment to enabling students to give back to the Brunswick community and will serve to benefit local residents. Hafler remarked on the feelings of the BSG: "We are just really excited about it."
