BRING IT -- Alumni Donation Challenge!!!

Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition? GC ALUMNI are asked to make donation of $10 or more ---for a challenge....The Development offices from GC and Pikeville want to encourage alumni to make a donation online to see who has the most school spirit! This contest is centered around the February 2 when the women’s and men’s basketball teams play one another. The winner of the contest will be announced between games on Feb 2. All funds will go to student scholarships, but be sure to ask for your donation to fund the ART SCHOLARSHIPS. I would further ask you to direct that donation specifically to McCormick-Williams (a scholarship named after two long-serving faculty).

Gifts must be made online between 4 a.m. EST on Monday, Jan. 23, and Noon EST on Thursday, Feb. 2.

• All online gifts from Georgetown and UPIKE during the challenge period will count toward the challenge total.

• The school that achieves the highest number of unique donors (not the highest dollar amount) within the challenge period will be declared the winner.

• Only one gift per person during the challenge period will be counted.

Consider donating to the Art Scholarships over the next two weeks -- we're getting new scholarship applications already, in house for incoming students for the Fall 2012....Wouldn't it be great to give MORE money to art students? And, if you can't contribute now, consider donating in the Fall.

Thanks! Earl Grey
