For 24 hours on Tuesday, April 24, The University of Tampa will host a fair-style fundraiser to raise awareness and appreciation for its generous donors.
The day’s main events, sponsored by the Office of Development and University Relations, will be held in the courtyard behind the Vaughn Center from noon to 2 p.m.
Activities include pie throwing at faculty and staff volunteers, chance drawing tickets, carnival games, photo contests, presidential golf cart chauffer and other activities to encourage campus-wide donations, education and involvement.
UT student organizations will simultaneously host activities to encourage students to get involved.
Throughout the day, donors will match UT’s fundraising efforts in hourly segmentations, such as for the nursing program, ROTC scholarships and Annual Fund.
“As a private University, UT depends on the philanthropic support of the community it serves,” said Jennifer Tyler, director of annual giving at UT, who is spearheading the event. “All gifts, regardless of size, add up to have an enormous impact and show how the Spartan family is all in for UT no matter where in the world they call home.”
