Ancilla Announces Dunk Tank Fundraiser as Part of United Way Pledge Drive

September 23, 2011

09/26/11 Ancilla College has announced the addition of a dunk tank fundraiser as part of its upcoming United Way pledge drive.

The dunk tank will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, September 29, with all donations from the activity benefitting the United Way of Marshall County.

Dunk tank volunteers will include Dr. Ron May (Ancilla College President), Gene Reese (Athletic Director), Nelson Lopez (Admissions Counselor), Sam Soliman (Instructor), Joe Yonto (Head Baseball Coach), Scott Reese (Head Softball Coach), and Rebecca Bunkowfst (student).

 Ancilla College’s reputation for creative United Way campaigns is well-known and the energy and enthusiasm of the faculty, staff, and students is inspiring,” said Linda Yoder, Executive Director of United Way of Marshall County, Inc.  “They are having fun and raising funds to help support thousands in our community who are in need.  On behalf of Marshall County and the 19 agencies we support, our heartfelt thanks goes to Ancilla for their outstanding commitment to the community.”

Throughout that week, the College will also offer numerous events on campus to help raise awareness and money for United Way, including an “Ancilla’s Got Talent” event, a costume contest, and a “Stump Dr. B!” booth, which allows students to test Ancilla College professor Dr. Tom Buchanan with general trivia.

Various games and free food will also be available.

Last year’s event raised over $3,600 for United Way of Marshall County and College officials are optimistic they can eclipse that number in 2011.
