Make a Lasting Difference
campaign tops $71 million
"May I have a drum roll please?" asked Don Morken, chair of the Make a Lasting Difference Campaign as he addressed an audience of 800-plus at the Q Club Banquet on May 3. With drums sounding and a searchlight sweeping the front of the Olson Auditorium stage, Morken teased the audience for several minutes before announcing the nearly-final numbers for the end of the campaign - $71,115,000. PLU's five-year $52 million campaign to raise the endowment officially ended May 31 (after Scene deadline) and was expected to go even beyond $72 million. Look for complete coverage of the campaign in the fall issue of Pacific Lutheran Scene. (Webmaster's note: Web coverage of the PLU Scene began with the winter issue.)
