Luncheon Honors Employee Donors
The Institutional Advancement Office and Pennsylvania College of Technology President Davie Jane Gilmour recognized the support of college employees through the Annual Fundand other college fundraising initiatives at a recent luncheon in the Thompson Professional Development Center.
Nearly 400 employee donors were invited, and more than 100 attended the luncheon hosted by Institutional Advancement. The event was catered by Penn College's Le Jeune Chef Restaurant.
During brief remarks at the luncheon, Gilmour told attendees that, since its inception in 1994, the Annual Fund Employee Campaign has raised nearly $590,000. That includes more than $69,000 from nearly 300 employees participating in the current (2007-08) Annual Fund Campaign. She noted that employee support through the Annual Fund also is honored with a plaque in the second-highest category on the Donor Wall in the Student and Administrative Services Center.
The president added that employees also gave generously to the Madigan Library Campaign, and have donated thousands of dollars to scholarship funds and memorial funds through special appeals. She praised all of the employee donors for becoming charitable supporters in the efforts to help students succeed.
The Institutional Advancement Office also thanks all employee donors for their exceptional support of Penn College's current and future students.
