Budget Proposal

The leaders of Midnight Philosophy estimate the following costs for the events of the Spring 2017 semester:


For six (6) Midnight events at the COOP, we request funding for Slices:


  • 2 large cheese pizzas ($24) + 1 large pepperoni pizza ($13) + 2 dozen wings ($14) + 10 sodas ($10) = $61 per event
  • Subtotal = $366


For our one (1) Midday event, we request funding for Hamilton Eatery:


  • Finger sandwich platter ($39) + Penne pasta salad ($5) + Dessert Platter ($18.75) + Drinks ($15) = $77.75 per event
  • Subtotal = $77.75


Grand total: $443.75


For our three (3) remaining late-night events at Donovan’s Pub, we will request late night programming from CLSI. To clarify, Donovan’s pub often hosts competing weekend events that interfere with our conversations. We request BAC funding because the COOP is a much better environment for debate and understanding.
