Congratulations to all the students who worked so hard to make the charity dinner a success! Even with low attendance due to the busy weekend schedule we raised $1,770 for this trimester’s charity. 100% of the profits from the dinner will go to Operation Thank You and be used towards the creation of comfort packages for the US troops currently serving overseas. Things like books, magazines, candy, support letters and many other items in high demand get put into the packages.
We had two great presentations from Ms. Eileen Boris and Mr. Chic Dambach and a great dinner provided by Buca di Beppo and Nothing Bundt Cake. Some lucky audience members took home Thunderbird Online and Executive Education certificates for discounted or free programs. We also had a variety of raffle prizes that went to other lucky winners!
All of our prizes and much of the funding for the dinner were provided by sponsors thanks go to: Thunderbird Online, Thunderbird Executive Education, the Thunderbird Student Government, the Thunderbird Entrepreneurship Network, the Thunderbird Rugby Football Club, the Thunderbird Technology Club, Buca di Beppo, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Thunderbird China Entrepreneurship Club, Thunderbird Project Management Club, the Thunderbird Global Supply Chain Club, the Thunderbird Global Investment Club, and the Thunderbird Toastmasters Club.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and attended the dinner! If you want to support the US military or other groups like the Peace Corps think about writing a general holiday letter thanking them for their service. One group that helps pass on these letters is “A Millions Thanks”.
