Mount Laurel, New Jersey – Rowan College at Burlington County Foundation Chairman Tony Mahon announced that the 8th Annual RCBC Foundation’s Celebration of Philanthropy broke all previous records by raising more than $175,000 from a single event.
“Every dollar of the $175,000 that was raised will go directly to RCBC student scholarships,” Mahon said.
More than 350 people attended the sold out event on Oct. 11 at the Merion in Cinnaminson. The keynote speaker was Dr. Ali Houshmand, president of Rowan University. The event was co-chaired by RCBC Foundation Trustees Dan Caldwell and Karen Albanese.
“This event marks the highest amount raised in the history of the event and the Foundation,” Mahon said, “and we want to especially thank Randy and Amanda Lahn our presenting sponsors for their support.”
Student Government Association President Christina Cover, an RCBC Foundation Scholarship recipient, delivered an impassioned and emotional speech.
The RCBC Foundation mission, through its leadership initiatives, is to raise money that will create scholarships for RCBC students in order to help them meet their financial requirements while providing them with accessibility to an affordable higher education.”
