The National Residence Hall Honorary has up the Beat the Bulldogs Car Bash, where you get to hit a car with a sledgehammer for only one dollar or five hits for three dollars. All of the proceeds go to research Leoys Dietz Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the connective tissue in the body.

NRHH is an organization that raises money for charities. Jeanne Moore, the vice president of programs and activities for NRHH, said that last year they raised $750 for the Make a Wish Foundation.

Danny Coradazzi, the graduate assistant for the united residents hall council said that the event is a great way to build money for our philanthropy.

“Part of our responsibility when we go to conferences is to provide money for philanthropy,” Coradazzi said. “It’s been great to see the students so excited and pumped up. A little kid came with a mallet and took a whack at it.”

This car bash has been a huge success based off accounts of people who have hit the car.

This was the cars' condition at the end of the day.

This isn’t the first time UT has seen a car bash. Last year a car bash was held before the Alabama-Tennessee football game, and the car had “Beat Bama” painted on it.

NRHH also hosts a trunk or treat where student organizations bring a car and decorate the trunk of it and kids will come trick or treating at Circle Park on Oct. 30.
