National Alumni Association past President John ’00 Rapp and his wife Stacy ’01 are challenging alumni to “ante up” by making a gift to the university for an opportunity to win a $150 gift card to Best Buy.
The poker-themed campaign is being used to support the Newman Fund, which provides scholarship aid to students. “One of the indicators of a strong university is participation from the alumni through giving back. It made sense to issue this challenge, adding a little incentive, and having fun with it,” said John Rapp ’00.
The contest ends June 30, 2011 at midnight and is open to all alumni who contribute by clicking here. The winner will be notified on July 1 via e-mail.
Gifts must be received before midnight on June 30, 2011 to be entered into the drawing. Winner will be selected July 1, 2011 and notified via e-mail.
