The Class of ’79 Wins It!

In case you missed it, the second installment of our alumni giving challenge was a great success—since kicking off the campaign, we received 17 gifts from alumni totaling over $17,000 toward Belmont Day’s Annual Fund!

And, in the March Madness Class Challenge, a late push saw the Class of 1979 take top prize as the highest participating class, followed closely by the Class of 2017.

In addition to congratulating the Class of ’79, we want to thank our amazing alumni for their continued support and engagement in this fun, philanthropic competition. We’ll be back with another March Madness Class Challenge next spring.
