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
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.
