Loyola Blakefield Community Raises Over $120,000 For Day of the Don
Our 5th Annual Day of the Don was a monumental success on Tuesday, May 10th. In just 13 hours, we eclipsed our original goal of $75,000 and 300 donors, and by the end of the day, we topped last year's record-breaking results in every category including total dollars raised by nearly $20,000 and number of total donors by more than 100 members of our community.
When we began planning this year's day of giving, we kept coming back to this theme of Loyola Blakefield as a second home. It's safe to say this theme resonated with so many of our alumni, families, faculty, staff, and friends, and it was well illustrated by several members of our community in the video we sent out.
Thank you for your generosity, your support, and most importantly, your belief in Loyola Blakefield as a second home that will continue to partner with families in forming men for and with others for many years to come!
