Take Flight with Your Colleagues on Monday!

Hot Air BalloonAs faculty and staff, we hope you can join us on Monday, Oct. 28, for the rescheduled Fall Harvest and Hot Air Balloon ride! It’s from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on the front field, near The Oaks Apartments. The Meredith Fund is celebrating the success of faculty and staff giving and guests are welcome to enjoy caramel apples, warm cider and other fall delights. Join President Jo Allen and watch as she takes flight in the hot air balloon to mark this special occasion.

Tickets for a complimentary tethered hot air balloon ride will be given to all donors who made a gift to the College last fiscal year or who give this year. Any dollar amount qualifies. You can pick up your ticket at the event.

Hot air balloon rides are wind and weather permitting. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes for entering and exiting the balloon basket.

Haven’t made your gift yet? Make your gift today at our Faculty and Staff Giving Initiative webpage.

For more information, please contact Jean Gambrill at x8392 or gambrillj@meredith.edu.

And get a free travel mug with a minimum gift of $2/month on payroll deduction.

The Meredith Fund Office would like to say thank you with this special mug. These mugs are available for any current and new payroll deduction donors.

Additionally, Aramark will honor your commitment to Meredith with a free warm beverage each weekday morning during the weeks of October 28 and November 4.  Available Monday-Friday for one warm drink at the Beehive from 7:30-9:30 a.m. Just go to the BeeHive with your donor travel mug and choose between coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate, or cappuccino!
