ATO to host Valhalla party to support tornado relief fund

The brothers of Alpha Tau Omega will host their annual Viking-themed Valhalla party Oct. 21 at 9 p.m. to raise funds for the Caring for the Pride tornado-relief campaign.

UNA student Chance McCullough, public relations chair for ATO, said the party is free to the public, but donations will be accepted to provide aid to students and professors affected by the April 27 tornadoes.

The Valhalla party, which will take place at 625 N. Locust St., will include musical performances by Flux and SpeakerBoxx, followed by a dance party with DJ Longhaired C-Will. The party is a substance-free event, where no alcohol, tobacco or narcotics will be permitted.

“I think (students) should come to the event because it’s for Alabama tornado relief for students who have been affected.” McCullough said. “They can come to the event, watch two bands, come to the dance party after, and it’s totally free and for a cause that affects everyone on campus.”

ATO officials have worked to publicize the event through various social media platforms, as well as utilized QR codes in their flyers.

When scanned by a smart phone, the codes send users to the chapter’s website, which offers information on the party, how to buy a T-shirt and how to donate to the fund.
