New Giving Opportunity

A new opportunity for giving to the JWU student community – Chancellor’s Emergency Fund: The Emeril Lagasse Scholarship Fund supports students studying in the College of Culinary Arts on all four JWU campuses; however we realize that all students (no matter the program of study) on all four campuses are sometimes in need of emergency funds for various reasons. The university recently created The Chancellor’s Emergency Fund to support our students in this time of need. To inaugurate the giving for this fund, we are partnering with our newest event supporter, Travelzoo, to give you the opportunity to win one of two get-a-way packages that they have graciously donated. Please consider supporting the Chancellor’s Emergency Fund by purchasing a $100 chance to win one of the two packages by Travelzoo.

You will see a table at each of our tournament events with a representative from the university who will process your donation. The drawing will occur on Tuesday, October 1 at Newport Country Club during the post reception. Michael Stitt, Vice President and General Manager of Travelzoo will be in attendance at the event and available to answer any questions related to the Travelzoo get-a-way packages. We hope you consider supporting the Chancellor’s Emergency Fund benefiting all JWU students in an emergency time of need.
