We were experimenting with this type of sale because our Chapter had never done it before and we didn't know if it was going to be successful, so we didn't want to buy to much product and then be unable to sell it. The sale was successful we made a total of $100, since we sold everything next time we know that there will be more demand.

Our new members learned even more about the history and traditions of Alpha Zeta with guidance from our current actives throughout the pizza hunt. At the end of the night, they voted on their class pizza. The winner is: Napoli Pizzeria located in downtown Ithaca!
