Plans are underway for A Day for Saint Leo
A Day for Saint Leo is a 24-hour fundraising campaign that brings together students, faculty, staff, and alumni to raise funds in support of Saint Leo’s life-changing mission. In its fifth year, we have set a goal to raise $100,000 in 24 hours, and here’s how you can help:
Participate in the Faculty and Staff Most Spirited Challenge! On October 29, come to work in your most spirited Saint Leo attire for the chance to receive a $100 gift card to the bookstore, a reserved parking spot for one month, the “most spirited trophy,” and other goodies. To participate, come to the Alumni Engagement Office before 10 a.m. to have your official contest picture taken. Voting will be open to the entire community on the Saint Leo University Facebook page and selfie tent from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Dress in denim to help fund student scholarships. Our A Day for Saint Leo celebration on October 29 will be a denim day. Make a $5 donation and wear your Saint Leo gear and denim. Donations can be dropped off at the Alumni Engagement Office (Saint Francis Hall, Room 110) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. or at the selfie tent between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Student Activities Building Green.
Support student fundraising. Students will be getting into the FUNdraising by hosting a penny war and dunk tank. Come out and support our students between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Student Activities Building Green.
On top of these fun events, several fundraising challenges have been planned for the day to help us reach our fundraising goal:
Early Bird Challenge │ Midnight to 10 a.m.
Start your day with a generous heart by participating in the early bird challenge. Our goal is to receive 125 gifts by 10 a.m. to unlock a special $10,000 gift.
Happy Hour Challenge │ 5 to 8 p.m.
End your workday by joining us for some happy hour fundraising. The challenge is to receive 50 gifts an hour for a total of 150 gifts. Making this goal will unlock a special $15,000 gift.
Night Owl Challenge │ 9 to 11:59 p.m.
Let’s end the campaign on a high note. We’ll release a special challenge on A Day for Saint Leo to wrap things up!
