For my Senior Thesis project I will be integrating my two emphases, English and Hospitality Management, to coordinate a Halloween activity for unfortunate youth in Utah. Through fundraising for the event, coordinating activities, and providing a memorable experience for these kids and their families I will build experience for a future career while contributing to the community.
For this project I want to get several organizations to donate with this event by providing food, entertainment, and donations for the organization so that they can best help the youth and families that they work with. I’m currently researching companies in the area who donate to non-profit organizations and have the means to do so. I plan on providing publicity for these companies who help by having KSL write about the event, and possibly attend it. (I have connections with KSL) I am researching activities that would be enjoyable for this type of event, while talking with the organization about their needs and wants. By the end of this semester I’ll have a detailed plan of everything I need for this event to happen. I need to continually talk with those who have experience with this type of work, and find articles that will help me have a better understanding of what I need to do.
