Text to Give to PBC

The University’s President’s Business Council (PBC) Twelfth Annual Award Dinner will be held on Thursday, Oct. 3, at The Pierre Hotel in New York City. At the dinner, the President’s Medal will be presented to Jacquelyn Rasieleski Dionne ’89, a trustee at The University of Scranton, and John D. Dionne ’86, senior advisor at the Blackstone Group.

The fundraising goal for this year’s dinner is $1.25 million, which coincides with the University’s 125th Anniversary Year, and that goal is within reach. All proceeds from the Annual Award Dinner support the University’s Presidential Scholarship Endowment Fund. In presenting the President’s Medal, the University and the PBC recognize honorees’ excellence in their fields and extraordinary compassion for others.

To help us reach our goal and to allow those who are not able to be at The Pierre in person to participate, the PBC has set up a text giving campaign to receive contributions and congratulatory messages for our Honorees and to wish the University a happy 125th. Messages will be made available on video screens throughout The Pierre on Thursday evening.

Alumni and friends can participate by texting 99629 with the following format:

Give + $amount + message + name ’class year

This will be available for the entire day on Thursday, Oct. 3 (12:00 a.m. thru 11:59 p.m. EST).
