Vice President of Development Todd Zeltwanger says that money can go a long way in helping Ancilla provide financial assistance to students. “There are many scholarship opportunities that students can apply for, and many of those funds come about because we have generous donors, many of them out there in this listening area that have given to us for years,” he says. “We appreciate them very, very much, and those funds that come in go right out to helping our students with their tuition assistance and other educational expenses.”
As part of the event, incentives are being offered as certain goals are reached. Donors are also being entered into drawings taking place throughout the day, with the chance to throw out the first pitch at a baseball or softball game tomorrow, among other prizes.
Additionally, Tony Ross is broadcasting from the Ancilla campus from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on MAX 98.3. Meanwhile, students, faculty, and staff will are encouraged to celebrate Ancilla on social media using the hashtag #jointhecharge.
