The President’s Dinner is the University’s most important annual fundraising event for student scholarships. Since its inception, the event has raised more than $48 million in student scholarship support.
By attending the Dinner or by making a contribution to the event, you also have the opportunity to help us honor the Spirit of Service Award recipients for all that they have done to support St. John’s Catholic and Vincentian mission to assist those most in need.
For this year we have created a giving page for employees only. This giving page will give you the ability to write a message to the awardees, the University, our students, or the President’s Dinner in general. You will receive the link to write a message upon making a gift.
Special St. John’s University employee tickets are available at the discounted rate of $250 per person (two ticket maximum). To purchase your ticket or find out more, please visit www.stjohns.edu/presidents-dinner.
Thank you for your participation in this important fundraiser for student scholarships. I look forward to seeing you at the Dinner on October 27.
