All Hood students, both past and present, benefit from Scholarships. May we ask you to support our 24-hour Scholarship Day Campaign on Wednesday, April 24th?
Hood athletes have the opportunity to donate to a special Scholarship Day campaign where gifts can be designated for the Blue and Grey Club. Alumni athletes can compete for “bragging rights” by selecting the team on which they played. The team with the most donors wins!
Even more exciting – For this day only, Board of Trustees members, Susan “Sue” Murawski Ganley ’79 and Susan J. Gearey ’79, will make a one-time, lump sum gift to match dollars raised on Scholarship Day, and in honor of their 40th Reunion.
Alumni Athlete Donor Goal: 100
Scholarship Day Donor Goal: 126
The total goal: 226 donors
Your gift will also give you complimentary admission to the Donor Appreciation Picnic on Saturday, April 27th in the Cohen Hospitality Suite overlooking the Thomas Athletic Field. Enjoy a fun afternoon with classmates and friends. Food and beverages will be provided. Help us cheer on the Women’s Lacrosse and Women’s Softball teams. The Women’s Lacrosse game begins at 1pm against Lycoming College. The Women’s Softball team has a double header at 1pm and 3pm against Widener College.
Kindly RSVP to the Donor Appreciation Picnic by Thursday, April 25th to The Office of Alumni and Constituent Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-696-3700.
Thank you for your participation – we hope to see you at the Picnic!
Make sure you double your impact at Hood on Scholarship Day!
