Tech’s 6th annual “Heatin’ Up the Quad” event raised $3,506 this year, increasing profits by a couple hundred dollars compared to last year, an organizer said.


“This event was good for us, good for the Food Pantry and good for Tech,” Suzann Hensley, assistant director for campus recreation, said.


She said 1,066 people attended the event, an increase of 21% over last year.


The event took place on Oct. 8 on Main Quad in support of the food pantry which is located at Tech Village. The event featured 35 department teams serving chili, soup, chowder, wings and desserts.


This event is sponsored by the provost office and is a part of the Tech Togetherness Initiative.
