President's Gala 2010

Saint Martin’s University President’s Gala breaks its scholarship fundraising record

Scholarships for Saint Martin’s University students will get a record $203,000 boost from the University’s annual President’s Gala, which took place Nov. 6, says University President Roy F. Heynderickx, Ph.D.

Saint Martin’s premier scholarship-fundraising event, now in its fifth year, netted $25,000 more than its 2009 total, thanks to the generosity of people outside and inside the University community. The amount includes a significant sum raised by University faculty and staff for the Fund-a-Mind Scholarship.

“Even in this tough economy there is widespread community support for Saint Martin’s,” said Heynderickx in thanking the volunteers and benefactors who helped make this year’s gala the best ever. “The scholarship money we raised through this event will make a crucial difference to many students who want to attend the University or continue their education here.” A committed group of alumni, friends, faculty and staff worked much of the year to plan the posh evening of dining, dancing and silent and live auctions at Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound. Co-chairing the event were Saint Martin’s alumni Dino Batali ‘59 and Dick Roney ’64. Both men also serve on the University’s Board of Trustees..
