"The event started at about 1:30pm, members from almost every single Greek life organization on campus attended. I kicked off Green Light GO by thanking everyone for coming and explaining to them why it was so special for us to be hosting it. I then read a speech that Meredith had sent to me, the same one she read at the Phi Alpha Alpha chapter's Green Light GO. After the reading I spoke about Jewish Women International and how the event is put on to benefit The Fund For Safe & Healthy Campuses and start a conversation about safer dating habits. Our Greek Life Advisor at the school and fellow ZBT brother, Brian Hoffman, also spoke to students about the changes he hopes to see on campus. I encouraged everyone to walk around and enjoy the event as much as they could, we sold items like Green Light GO wristbands for a small donation, ZBT tank tops to benefit Relay For Life and Teddy Bears to benefit Children's Miracle Network. There was also free popcorn, green cotton candy and water bottles at the event.

"At 2:00 the Red Light/Green Light games began. We played a big game of normal Red Light/Green Light to refresh people's memories before adding in the Yellow Light rule. There was a total of six rounds/games played, the winner of each round won a prize. The prizes were gift card donations from businesses like Chipotle, BurgerFi, SoFresh, SOHO donuts, Oxford Exchange and MacDinton's. The event came to a close a little before 3:00pm as people started to leave and my members got to take pictures with our letters and enjoy our Green Light GO shirts. We raised over $300 dollars for The Fund For Safe & Healthy Campuses. Our major sponsors for the event were Diamond View Studios and The Bungalow. We cannot thank them enough for their support. The event was successful in my opinion, we couldn't have picked a better day to do it and I hope that the conversation we set in motion at Green Light GO continues on my campus."
