The School of Business Administration’s Business Society held their Pins for PTSD event on Saturday, January 14, at Thunderbird Lanes. More than $2,000 was donated to the Post Traumatic Stress Foundation of Philadelphia.

“Many of our society members are aware of PTSD because of their interactions with veterans,” said Dr. Luanne Amato, Management-Marketing Instructor and faculty adviser. “Also, they recognized that PTSD is not only for veterans and there limited causes that support this issue. Our members consider it a silent issue—not usually heard about or taken seriously.”

Attendees enjoyed pizza, soda, bowling, and endless fun throughout the night. Bowlers were also able to bid on various prize baskets, including Mary Kay cosmetics, Wawa giftcards, Palace Skating, Philadelphia Flyers memorabilia, a signed Philadelphia Eagles Jersey, and Adventure Aquarium tickets.

"We were all amazed at the level of participation, the quality of the bowling, the number of baskets provided, and most importantly, the amount of money raised," Amato said.
