Event Photos 2009
Thanks to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and guests for making 2009's inaugural "Get Down, Give Back" a success.
Proceeds from last year's event, held November 20, 2009 at the Five Event Center in Uptown, totaled $14,215. This amount, added to earlier gifts and pledges, brought the Twin Cities Young Alumni Scholarship Fund to $20,800. We know that with your generous support we will achieve our goal of fully endowing the scholarship at $25,000 in the near future. As soon as this scholarship is fully funded, it can go to work in assisting deserving students to attend Luther College.
You can learn more about the importance of endowed scholarship and annual fund support at http://giving.luther.edu.
