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..
