Lincoln Board Chair Hosts Garden Party To Benefit 10 Million Scholarship Campaign

first_imgThe Lincoln University Board of Trustees Chair Kimberly Lloyd ‘94 is hosting The Chairlady’s Garden Party to benefit the university’s first-ever $10 million Students First Campaign for student scholarships, June 21, on the lawn of its historic Alumni House. The Students First Campaign, which is an endowment campaign for merit and need-based scholarship support, is chaired by Hollywood legend and philanthropist Dr. William “Bill” Cosby Jr., who has been encouraging support from corporations, foundations, churches, the general public as well as alumni, faculty and staff of The Lincoln University. The campaign ends June 30. “The concept of the Chairlady’s Garden Party is two-fold, first the opportunity to raise scholarship funds for our students at The Lincoln University and to secondly display the southern charm of our main campus,” said Lloyd, who is asking ladies in attendance to adorn themselves with hats, gloves and pearls while the gentlemen to don seersucker and linen suits or cool breeze shirts and slacks. Currently, Lincoln lacks the funds of wealthier institutions to compete for the best and brightest students, who typically chose the university. In addition, more than 96 percent of Lincoln’s students depend on financial assistance. Over the past several months, the university has enlisted the support of alumni, faculty & staff as well as corporate, foundation and faith-based community leadership to also encourage support while numerous solicitations on Dr. Cosby’s behalf have been made to support the campaign. “The Students First Campaign is an important effort and we look forward to our guests’ support as well as hope they take the opportunity to tour the campus and visit the newly-established Danjuma African Art Center, the Langston Hughes Memorial Library, our International Cultural Center and the many other historical or significant sites on campus,” said Lloyd. Guest reservations for The Chairlady’s Garden Party are $20 per person. To make reservations, email: alumni@lincoln.edu or call: 1–800-726-3014.last_img read more
