Lindsey Wilson College “All-In for LWC,” 48-hour challenge begins on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
The 48-hour event to raise money for student aid will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 27, and will last until midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 28. The social media campaign dubbed All-In For LWC began in 2014 and has raised more than $4.5 million.
“The ‘All-In’ campaign is a time of fellowship and fun,” says LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. “For two days each year, we loosen our ties and get down to business. It’s a campus-wide effort and we enjoy every minute working alongside our students.”
This year’s campaign will include a safari scavenger hunt. The campaign gifts will be placed along a hidden treasure trail. LWC students will be given clues to the “treasure” via an LWC history trivia game. LWC alumni and friends will be challenged to answer the trivia questions to assist the students in their search.
“This social media driven, interactive format will allow even more people to take a part in the campaign this year,” says LWC Director of Alumni Relations Lafawn Nettles. “Connecting current and former students with the LWC history trivia game will add excitement to the day’s activities. We are looking forward to the past and present coming together to meet the one meaningful goal of helping more students receive a life-changing LWC education.”
The fall 2022 campaign is structured so that students will immediately benefit from the financial support. By going to www.lindsey.edu/giving, donors may give their gift directly to more than 30 affinity programs. For example, if you are a former baseball player, cheerleader, band member, or if you have a love for theatre, you can designate your gift to go to your favorite program, team, club or group.
“I want to personally thank everyone who has taken part in this eight-year journey to raise money for students,” said board chair, Dr. Allan Parnell. “We encourage the LWC family to take part in this exciting new initiative and help students answer the questions to receive even more scholarship aid.
“We have 48 hours to make a difference and we can’t do it without our alumni and our friends, in Adair County and beyond.”
