March 14 is Roanoke Valley Gives 2018, a day of giving throughout the community and of friendly competition on Virginia Western’s campus as students raise money for the Virginia Western Educational Foundation.
The Armed Forces Student Association, as the GOLD stars, challenges all other student clubs, represented as the BLUE stars, to a fund raising challenge to cross the bridge first. Bring your competitive spirit, loose change, and show of support for Virginia Western and the Virginia Western Educational Foundation by purchasing a star to display on the bridge, 50 cents for 1 star; $1 for 3 stars. Larger donations receive a thank you gift and membership in the annual student giving campaign.
All contributions from today and throughout the student giving campaign will be matched by Dr. Charles Steger, Chair of the Virginia Western Educational Foundation Board and former Virginia Tech president. Donate in person at the campus bridge on the March 14, 10 AM – 2 PM, or online at https://rvgives.givebig.org/c/rvgives/a/virginiawesternedu
