STILLWATER, Okla. — Bennett Hall will be hosting the Bennett Jam at 5 p.m. Tuesday on the front lawn of the residence hall. Catherine Wilson, a freshman resident of Bennett, is co-chair of the sponsors and donations committee.
1 What is the Bennett Jam at Oklahoma State?
Bennett Jam is a benefit concert that Bennett Hall hosts each year. This year, all of the proceeds we raise are going to a little girl named Ainsley Peters who is currently battling leukemia.
2 How will Bennett Jam help the Peters family?
Ainsley is entering the maintenance round of chemotherapy, which means she still has around two years of treatment left. We are raising money to help the Peters family with medical expenses as well as lifestyle changes they have had to make to accommodate Ainsley’s treatment.
3 Why was the Peters family chosen this year?
The Peters family lives in Stillwater, and Ainsley’s father, Chris, works for OrangeTech. Their involvement with OSU made them an easy choice to be this year’s recipient.
4 What entertainment and activities will there be?
We have four musical acts lined up this year: Marrell Jones, Voss, Jake Daniel Murphy and Travis McClearen. We will also have food and raffle prizes that include a GoPro, a set of headphones donated by OrangeTech, and assorted gift cards from Stillwater stores and restaurants.
5 How does the event earn donations and how can people donate?
There are a few ways the event earns donations. First, the purchase of our shirts and tanks, which are $15 dollars each and will be sold at the event. There will also be food available for purchase and tickets for our raffle drawing. People can donate by coming to the event and getting involved or by contacting Catherine Wilson at email@example.com.
