A graphic of a purple pie chart on a black background. At the top a title that reads “S.G.A.’s Violet 100 budget allocation.” The category “Violet Ball” takes up more than half of the pie chart, with “Violet 100 Concert” the next-largest, though less than half the size. Most of the remaining space is budgeted toward “All-University Games” and “Merchandise, Giveaways and Tabling.” The “Violet 100 Service Events” category is so small the text doesn’t fit.
