Scholarship Ball Raises Record $862,000

As part of the event, several of the University's most distinguished alumni were recognized.
The Ball, UNH's signature fundraising event, was attended by more than 350 guests who participated in a dinner, a silent auction, a live auction and dancing. "We are pleased with the generous amount raised at this year's Ball," said President Steven Kaplan. "Scholarship funds are critically important, as there are many deserving students who otherwise would not be able to pursue their dreams of earning a college education. Our success is the result of the support of our alumni, friends, area businesses, faculty, staff and major donors. I greatly appreciate their support. Their participation makes a difference to our students." Learn more about this record-breaking fundraiser
