The celebration will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, in Room 210 of the Bernhard Center. Dunn will acknowledge campaign organizers and contributors, and light refreshments will be served. A grand-prize drawing will take place for those who have increased their gift by $50 since last year.

Prizes include:

  • Pair of seats in the President's Box for the last home football game
  • Two $50 gift certificates for Millenium Restaurant Group (Martell's, Epic Bistro, The Union, Fieldstone Grill)
  • Overnight stay at the Oaklands and two tickets to the Gold Company's 33rd anniversary concert

WMU surpassed its $275,000 goal today. According to campaign directors, a total of $277,600 in gifts and pledges was received from more than 1,500 WMU donors. Although this year's campaign has officially ended, the president's office will continue to collect donations of any amount. For information on making a gift, contact wmu-united-way@wmich.edu.

WMU's campus drive is part of the Greater Kalamazoo United Way's $9.05 million overall campaign. Visit Greater Kalamazoo United Way online to learn more about the organization's 40 local agencies and hear stories from people whose lives have been changed by the help they received from United Way.
