Meredith alumnae, faculty and staff, families, students and friends gathered on Thursday, Sept. 23, 2010, for The Meredith Fund Family Festival.
It was a fun-filled event complete with face painting, bounce houses, and special guests such as Stormy, the Carolina Hurricanes’ mascot, and Mr. and Mrs. Wuf, NC State’s mascots. Student groups, the Bathtub Ring and the Oddballs entertained the crowd of over 350 people. The evening culminated in a wonderful show of fireworks over the new athletic field.
The Family Fun Festival was held to kick off the new Be One in a Million initiative to raise $1 million for The Meredith Fund by increasing our alumnae giving percentage to 23%. If 23% of alumnae give just $20 a month, that would result in $1,000,000 for The Meredith Fund! When alumnae, faculty and staff, parents and friends support the College and encourage others to do the same, they are strengthening Meredith’s reputation and providing for future students.
