A dozen University of New Mexico student groups raised $500 for United Way by purchasing 250 dominoes to set up in a competition against each other. The one-day event was held Monday in the Student Union building as part of a campus wide effort to reach this year's $1 million goal for United Way.
One by one, the dominos fell in unique patterns as one brave soul from each group pushed forward the first domino. Judges Kiki Garcia, KKOB; Buck from Edge radio's The Buck and Dex Show and UNM student regent, Cate Wisdom watched and tallied points based on the number of dominos used, creative design and how many dominos fell.
The winners were ASUNM's Community Experience, with Alpha Tau Omega and Pi Kappa Alpha coming in second and third, respectively.
Tim Mousseau, head of ASUNM Community Experience said, "It is amazing seeing so many students band together to help raise both awareness and have fun at the same time. In the end, we were all winners today."
Community Experience puts on Albuquerque wide and campus-wide service events throughout the school year including Fall Frenzy, Spring Storm, blood drives, food drives, the Giving Tree and pet adoptions.
