On October 24, 2012 The Pre-Health Society and BioCid co-hosted a Low Country Shrimp Boil Fundraiser that raised $650 to support Wounded Nature (an organization that employs veterans to clean up beaches and increase environmental awareness).  Students worked all day selling tickets, shopping, chopping, cooking, serving, and cleaning up; making the event a huge success.
