Who knew there was so much money in jars and between couch cushions? When it was all totaled, the annual Penny Wars for SI’s Alternative Spring Break student projects came to a whopping $3,151.58. That total included both contributions in person at North Quad and through the Crowdrise online fundraising effort.
Kelly Kowatch, primary strategist of Penny Wars and assistant director of career development at SI, said the faculty/staff/Ph.D. student group took the top honor for donations with $860.11. You can take a look at how each of the Penny Wars combatants made out.
