It is incredible that we are now only a few months away from celebrating our XXth reunion. If you have not marked your calendar yet, please do so now. Reunion Weekend is June 1-3, 2018 and we are counting on you to be a part of this milestone celebration.
Reunions at Providence College have a tradition of reconnecting classmates with theCollege we love, and rekindling many lifelong friendships. When graduates return to campus, we are all celebrating not only our shared experience as PC alumni, but also our partnership with the College and its future.
As you reflect on the people, places, and events that made your experience at PC memorable, you have a unique opportunity to show your continuing support of Providence College by participating in the XXXX reunion class gift. We are aiming to far surpass our financial goal of $XXX,XXX with a XX% class member participation rate.
I ask you to consider supporting the XXXX reunion class gift. Your contribution will help support the College’s core priorities and ensure that the Providence College liberal arts education, steeped in Dominican tradition, not only remains intact, but continues to grow. Indeed, this is our time as a class to demonstrate not only our love of Providence College, but also our wholehearted dedication to its future. I will call next week in hopes that we can set a convenient time to meet in person or chat via phone about your participation.
Thank you for time and your consideration. I look forward to seeing you at Reunion Weekend.
