HALFWAY TO HOMECOMING 2014
Third Annual Halfway To Homecoming event was a great success!
The halfway mark to Homecoming 2014 was celebrated on March 7 at Gilhooley's Grande Saloon. More than 80 SXU alumni and friends crowded into the Heritage Room and updated Den, to enjoy the music, good food and make plans for Homecoming week, September 21-27, 2014.
Cougar 5K participants were also invited to attend H2H this year to celebrate Halfway to the Cougar 5K. Guests who stopped by the 5K table to receive information on this year's Run/Walk, received a discount for early registration and a free gift from the Cougar 5K planning committee.
Halfway to Homecoming was also an opportunity for alumni to show their support for Saint Xavier University's mission because a portion of every entrance fee was donated to support student scholarships. Raffles for gift baskets, donated by the National Alumni Board and local merchants, also provided additional funding. In all, more than $1,500 was raised in support of SXU student scholarships!
Be sure to save the date of September 27, 2014. Join us for the 14th Annual Cougar 5K Run/Walk and catch a VIP view of the Cougar football game (1 p.m.) in the Homecoming Brew House Tailgate Tent!
