Loras College gets $15,000 gift challenge

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -
Loras College in Dubuque has received an anonymous gift challenge of $15,000 as it prepares to host its 3rd annual Duhawk Day May 21.

An anonymous 1985 alum stepped forward for the gift challenge. If the Loras community reaches its goal of 1,450 donors in one day, the donor will make the $15,000 gift to the school.

Duhawk Day is an annual celebration to welcome the newest group of alumni. Last year, alumni, students, faculty and friends of the college aimed to reach 1,075 donors in one day in honor of Loras College's 175th anniversary.

 The Loras community surpassed that goal, reaching more than 1,200 donors in only 24 hours.

In recognition of Loras as a “home away from home," the donor goal for 2015 has been set at 1,450. Friends of the college are encouraged to wear purple and gold on Duhawk Day.
