The Office of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving at Mercyhurst is launching a 21-day fundraising challenge — the Luck Be a Laker Alumni Giving Challenge — in hopes of reaching its goal of raising $42,000. The event begins Saturday, May 11, and ends Friday, May 31.
In 21 days, Alumni Relations is reaching out to alumni, parents and friends of Mercyhurst to try to raise $21,000. Each gift made through the Luck Be a Laker challenge will then be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous trustee for a total goal of $42,000 in unrestricted Annual Fund dollars.
“As we near the end of the fiscal year, now more than ever, we need Annual Fund support,” said Msgr. David Rubino, Ph.D., vice president of external affairs. “A trustee has generously offered us a unique opportunity to help engage all members of the Mercyhurst community to give back. I am excited to see the spirit of Mercy in action, and I have no doubt that we will far surpass our goal.”
