Meredith alumnae, families, students, children and friends gathered on Thursday, September 23 for The Meredith Fund Family Festival. It was a fun-filled night complete with music, activities, face painting, bounce houses, and special guests such as Stormy, the Carolina Hurricane’s mascot, and Mr. and Mrs. Wuf, NC State’s mascots. Student groups, the Bathtub Ring and the Oddballs entertained the crowd of over 350 people. The evening culminated in a wonderful show of fireworks over the new soccer field and a ‘grab and go’ candy bar at the exit.
The event was held to kick off the new initiative to raise $1,000,000 in The Meredith Fund by increasing our alumnae giving percentage to 23%. If 23% of alumnae give just $20 a month we would be able to raise $1,000,000 in The Meredith Fund! When alumnae support the college and encourage other alumnae to do the same, they are strengthening Meredith’s reputation and providing for future students, all while increasing the value of their degree.
