Reception today a flowery thank-you to campus donors

A reception today to honour staff, faculty and retiree donors to the Annual Giving Program will proceed rain or shine, says organizer Mona Dosen. Luckily, forecasters are calling for fair weather.

Dosen, a development officer in University Advancement, says the event is a chance to show appreciation for supporters of UWindsor fundraising efforts.

“Every single employee gives so much to our students, it’s absolutely true,” she says. “Those who go beyond by donating for student scholarships, for state-of-the-art facilities and campus amenities deserve special recognition.”

Attendees will be entered in a draw to win a door prize of dedication rights to a commemorative bench on the UWindsor campus. Eligible donors have received an invitation through the mail.

The one-hour reception begins at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 24, at the garden outside the Leddy Library’s front entrance.
