Sorority holds speed dating fundraiser

Story by Melody Cherchian

CSUN’s Zeta Phi Beta sorority held their first “Love Rush” speed dating event on Thursday to help fundraise for the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission.

Doors opened at 6:30 p.m. as students started making their way through the Grand Salon, where they signed in on a sheet, got a name tag, grabbed some treats and made their way to the tables.

Shani Crutcher, 21, a senior majoring in English and president of sorority chapter Omega Kappa, was inspired to plan the event in order to raise money for families in need staying at the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission emergency shelter.

Jason Moore, 22, a graduate with a bachelor’s degree in CTVA, attended the event after seeing it posted on Facebook.

“I’m here to support my friends in the sorority and help the cause,” Moore said. “I’m also here to network and meet new people in the process.”
