Benefactor Recognition Dinner to honor philanthropic partners

On Saturday, April 14, the university will honor its philanthropic partners at the annual Benefactor Recognition reception and dinner to be held on the Winona campus. The event, by invitation only, celebrates the generosity shown to Saint Mary’s and provides an opportunity for student and benefactor interaction. This year’s theme, “Celebrating a Century of Philanthropy,” was chosen in commemoration of the launch of Saint Mary’s yearlong Centennial celebration.

Betty Kabara and the late Jon Kabara ’48 will be honored with the first SMU Heritage Award for their transformational giving to the university.

The ever-popular Oldie Moldies will provide the evening’s entertainment. For more information, contact Vickie Cada, Ext. 7000, or
