Saturday, April 01, 2017Fundraiser

SpireFest fundraiser for the University of Saint Mary

 

This year marks the 14th anniversary of SpireFest, the largest scholarship fundraiser at the University of Saint Mary. Each year, SpireFest brings over 500 guests together—with a goal to raise more than $200,000 for USM student scholarships. The event consists of live entertainment, a live and silent auction, gourmet dinner, fun red carpet activities, and much more!

Please join us on April 1, 2016 at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza to support the students of the University of Saint Mary. Ninety-nine percent of our students receive financial assistance. More than 40 percent of our student body represent the first generation of their families to attend college, and just over 43% qualify for low-income federal aid.

Without scholarships, college would be merely a dream for many of these students. Instead, it’s reality. Future nurses, teachers, entrepreneurs, moms, and dads—the possibilities are endless.     

This year, our goal is no different. Student scholarships are at the heart of SpireFest 2017, and your support is what will make this exciting event a huge success.

On behalf of Saint Mary, I would like you to consider sponsoring or donating an auction item to SpireFest 2017.

All proceeds from the event benefit student scholarships—ensuring deserving USM students have the scholarship assistance they need to complete their education and go after their dreams.   

We thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you on April 1.  


When:
Saturday, April 01, 2017 6:00 PM thru 11:30 PM

Delegating With Purpose (SBDC)

Delegation is a critical skill for leaders in today's "do more with less" business environment. Fewer resources, changing motivations, virtual employees, and global workforces are just a few of the challenges leaders face as they attempt to meet ever-increasing workplace demands. In this course, leaders learn the skills they need to address these challenges, gain the commitment of team members, develop individual skills and abilities, and enhance the overall capability and capacity of their teams and, ultimately, the organization. Leaders learn to identify the tasks they need to delegate, select the most appropriate individuals, assess capabilities and commitment, and plan the delegation discussion including the level of decision-making authority, amount of support, and methods for measuring and monitoring the delegation. This class is part of the Business Leadership Certificate. The on-campus DDI course is approved by HRCI and SHRM for 3.5 hours.
Fee: $154
