Alumni and Friends Regional Event - Arizona
On Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 more than 100 Saint Xavier University alumni and friends gathered with President Christine M. Wiseman, J.D., for the Chicago Blackhawks vs. Phoenix Coyotes hockey game at the Jobing.com Arena (Jobingarena.com) in Glendale, Ariz.
The evening began with a pregame reception on the outdoor terrace deck, at which Phoenix Coyote's staff and ownership welcomed SXU to the stadium as well as to the Arizona community where its newest campus will be located.
President Christine M. Wiseman, J.D. greeted all attendees and informed guests of the successful events which took place earlier in the week, including the site dedication for the SXU Gilbert, Ariz. campus and reception.
During the game, lucky SXU guests were treated to time in the penalty box and a ride on the Zamboni! Though the Chicago Blackhawks were defeated (0-2), all SXU alumni, friends and partners left the arena with the excitement of champions for Saint Xavier's bright future!
Always conscious of the great need of our students, a portion of each ticket's price was donated to support SXU student scholarships. For more information about upcoming alumni events please contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at 773-298-3316 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
