Members of the Asian American Student Association at Southwestern Oklahoma State University recently held a successful fundraiser, raising $1,080, for the Agape Medical Clinic in Weatherford.

The AASA raised the money to help purchase medications for the facility.   

The event was a date auction. Student volunteers were introduced on a catwalk and sported their best talent to attract bids. Bids came from AASA members and other SWOSU students.

The Agape Clinic is a non-profit medical clinic founded in 1998 dedicated to serving people with medical needs throughout western Oklahoma. The clinic pays no staff and uses all monies to buy medicine and supplies for clients.
