Today marked the annual Thank a Donor Day at the University of Louisville. The event is “a celebration of the donors who support this University”
These donations contribute to the Endowed Chairs and Professorships, scholarships, research grants and trials, research facilities, student groups, athletic facilities and teams.
“Thank a donor day is sponsored by Donor Relations. The goal is to get students, faculty and staff out to thank our donors for their private denotations to the university,” said Amanda James.
Student and faculty members made signs and signed a cardboard wall to show their appreciation for the donors. They had also shot footage for a video that they plan to send out come thanksgivings time.
After students wrote heartfelt thank you signs and signed the wall of gratitude they were offered a free meal. The members of the Donor Relations organization had a line of grills were they handed out hot dogs and hamburgers to line of students.
This celebration took place today on the Belknap campus in front of the Red Barn. If you missed the celebration, do not fear they will be putting on another event on Thursday at the health sciences campus quad from 11:00a.m. until 1:30p.m. as well.
