Torchbearers commitments near $130,000
Last Wednesday, those who gave financially to the Torchbearers Campaign were treated with ice cream sundaes at the Fowler Center as a special "thank you." As of this past Friday, there were 456 who gave to ASU through Torchbearers. (A Torchbearer is a current or retired ASU faculty or staff member who donates to the ASU Foundation.) Approximately $130,000 has been committed this year for scholarships, departments or various colleges, Santa's Tribe, the Library, KASU, or the Museum. Great prizes were donated from area businesses and in all, 31 employees' names were drawn for prizes. See prizes for a complete list of employees who won.
