Spectators or all ages attended the free Jazz on the Green Concert behind the Gusman Concert Hall on Sunday afternoon. The University of Miami Jazz Concert Band performed with guest artist Nicole Yarling.
Family members, friends and fans poured into the auditorium at the Gusman Concert Hall to watch 16 of our university’s most dynamic young women compete for scholarships and the exciting position of Miss University of Miami and the new title of Miss Miami Hurricane 2009 at the Miss UM Scholarship Pageant on Tuesday night.
One of the core sponsors of the event Blue Bell Ice Cream sponsored a new aspect of the drive this year – the Pint for Pint program. Students received a pint of ice cream for donating a pint of blood. With a goal to collect 1000 units of blood, the Greeks succeeded in collecting a total of 1,015 units of blood consisting of whole blood, platelets and plasma donations. It is reported that the last time Greek Week collected 1,000 units of blood was seven years ago.
