Thank you to the alumnae who stopped at the Brake for Coffee event, the students who promoted the day’s events on campus, and the donors who expressed their generosity through gifts. The success of Give to St. Kate's Day 2015 was a community effort.
With the outpouring of gifts throughout the whole day, we were able to release all $215,000 of Challenge Funds. Thank you to our Challenge Fund donors for leading the effort and motivating our community through their challenge of releasing dollar for dollar:
Because more than 100 donors responded to the Happy Hour Challenge, the Sriver Foundation donated an additional $10,000 to St. Kate’s! The 100th donor, Marian D. ’51, spoke to Telefund caller Bre Johnson ’18 with only ten minutes remaining in the two-hour Happy Hour Challenge.
The winner of the first annual Chapter Challenge — the region with the most donors — is Chicago, IL. The Chicago chapter will be rewarded with wine for their next event!
