Be Part of this Exciting Event Supporting
UNH Scholarships

"If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people." Chinese proverb
On Saturday, April 16, the University of New Haven Alumni Association will host its 28th Annual Alumni Scholarship Ball in the University's David A. Beckerman Recreation Center. Proceeds will support scholarships for UNH students.

This year's theme for the gala, "If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people," is based on a Chinese proverb. Your support will make a direct impact on our students today and for a lifetime.

In addition, three distinguished alumni will be honored: Dolores J. Ennico, '82 E.M.B.A.; Shelley Stewart, Jr., '90 E.M.B.A.; and Howard Wurzak, '76 B.S. These three alumni will join the more than 65 distinguished alumni who have been honored over the past 27 years.

Since its inception, this event has raised nearly $3 million for scholarships, enabling thousands of students to reap the benefits of a University of New Haven education.
