Michigan State University’s Tower Guard will be hosting a Valentine’s Day date in the Beaumont Tower for the second year in a row. A second-year honor’s student organization, the group focuses on serving the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities, or RCPD, here at MSU.

“It's just a cool little opportunity because people don't get to just go into the tower,” Tower Guard Fundraising Chair Avery Kammerzell said. “So, it's a cute little secluded date type of thing.”

The tower will be decorated with streamers and balloons for Valentine’s Day and the dinner date will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Part of the proceeds will go towards the Tower Guard Member Scholarship and part will go to the RCPD.

“Faculty advisors that we have for Tower Guard will choose one of the members who they feel has done a lot of work for the community,” Kammerzell said.

The contest has a low-stakes raffle-style entry with one ticket costing $5. If you buy three or more, tickets cost $4 apiece. The limit is 20 tickets.

Kammerzell said people can enter by sending money to the Tower Guard Venmo account: @MSUTG22-23. The raffle will end at 5 p.m. on Feb. 12 and a random generator will pick the winning raffle.

Participants are asked to include their full name, phone number, number of desired tickets and that the money is for the Tower Guard raffle specifically. Only one person will win, but they can bring a guest of their choice. The winner will receive a $40 DoorDash gift card for a local dinner at their desired restaurant.
